Hangover 3 Trailer

This is the trailer to final instalment to the very famous Hangover franchise starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha and Zach Galifianakis. The Hangover Part 1 was and still is the highest grossing comedy film of all time directed by Todd Phillips (Due Date, Project X).

In the trailer, it begins at a funeral with someone singing almost opera like, we then find out its the character of Zack Galifianakis, 'Alan'. This somehow is amusing to the audience as he is the comedians in the film with stupidity and ignorance. This kinda gives you a mix feeling of emotion as it is funny with Alan singing and the character of Bradley Cooper, 'Phil' saying "My God, he's got the voice of an angel'. There is an element of sadness as it is someone’s funeral, we catch a glimpse of Jeffrey Tambor's picture so there is a hint that it might be his death, in the movie. The music abruptly changes to the rock and glimpses of Las Vegas's buildings.

There are a variety of shots of the 3 characters doing what they do best; causing mayhem. There's a voice over saying "Someone needs to burn this city to the ground", this sets the audience in the mind of an action-comedy. The following shots are a mix of both gun shooting and someone being killed, and also comedy scenes with "Alan", in this scene there is no music, the very quiet sounds in the background, the music resumes with a long shot with silhouette figures running in the distance and the a handheld shot of "Alan" running from a guy in a pig mask.

Throughout the trailer, it shows both action scenes and comedy scenes, however the comedy scenes are very obvious, the music stops and the attention is all on the characters, whereas in the action scene have music and are very quick paced, maybe to suggests the pace of the movie.

In many trailers, especially in horror and comedy films, they show the funniest/scariest scene at the end, and the trailer has been no exception. The last scene sees "Alan" driving with a giraffe in a cage and it suggests that he kills the giraffe and causes a huge accident in the background. If someone who has seen the previous Hangover films, will know that this is typical "Alan" behaviour.
