The Hangover Part 3 is Flopping

[quote]Warner Bros’ The Hangover Part III co-financed with Legendary Pictures went wide in 3,555 North American theaters today and my sources say it opened to $11 million which includes Wednesday late shows and Thursday midnights. That’s miniscule compared to The Hangover Part II‘s Thursday opening of $31.6M - 3,615 locations on May 26, 2011 - which was the highest-grossing opening day ever for a live-action comedy. (H3‘s also is less than Thursday’s $13.5M debut a week ago for Star Trek Into Darkness.) Plus audiences only gave The Hangover Part III a ‘B’ CinemaScore compared to the ‘A-’ which the sequel scored. This threequel also scored even worse reviews (only 26% positive on Rotten Tomatoes) than H2 (34%) which was considered embarrassingly awful.

Enough with the sequels already!

If only. Who knows, the masses may just be holding off for the 3 day weekend, but I do know a lot of people who hated the 2nd one and loved the first who may not bother with the 3rd.

It would be hilarious if Fast and Furious 6 won the weekend.

by Anonymousreply 205/24/2013

Star Trek certainly won't win the weekend. It probably won't even make the top 5.

by Anonymousreply 305/24/2013

Good. Now can Zach Gabagheosehfkdnsgej and Bradley Cooper fuck off now.

by Anonymousreply 405/24/2013

I think that's kind of normal for a third. I guess a lot of people didn't like the second film but I liked it. It made me laugh and it was a real adventure.

by Anonymousreply 505/24/2013

The first one was so overhyped and so terrible. It didn't even make me smile and I have awful taste. I've enjoyed Adam Sandler movies more.

by Anonymousreply 605/24/2013

the gay hater is putting down Star Trek...probably the same person who can't stand the Hangover films.

by Anonymousreply 705/24/2013

Hate these homophobic films. Hate that fat fuck Zach whathisname and I hate overrated overexposed Bradley Cooper.

by Anonymousreply 805/24/2013

Bradley Cooper should have as many plastic surgeries as it takes to make us forget his vanishing chin and ugly, ugly nose.

by Anonymousreply 905/24/2013

Why pay $12-15 bucks to see a third retread in theaters when it will play endlessly on cable six months from now?

by Anonymousreply 1005/24/2013

If ever there was a franchise that didn't deserve a trilogy, it's The Hangover. The Godfather, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings--those movies deserved trilogies.

by Anonymousreply 1105/24/2013

Of course, the Fast and Furious movie will win. Now, if even third-week-ender Gatsby could beat the Hangover, that would be funny!

Any film that contains LOTS of muscle cars, lots of action, and lots of barely dressed models dancing around to hip hop music at car shows is going to make major $$$$$$ at the boxoffice. It hits every conceivable, um, "quadrant".

r16 If you mean Ken Jeong he is Korean.

A decapitated giraffe may have been too uncool for even the dumbest of frat boys.

by Anonymousreply 1905/24/2013

I am skipping it because of the giraffe scene. I would have seen it otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 2005/24/2013

Fast and Furious is going to beat it by a mile. Nikki is predicting $50 million for The Hangover and over $100 million for F&F.

And to compare, The Hangover 2 made over $80 million its opening weekend. So this one is a major disappointment. And to think they spent over a $100 million on this thing. For what exactly?

You think giraffes are cheap?

Won't they make it all back and then some with the foreign release?

by Anonymousreply 2305/24/2013

This movie will still make a gigantic profit. It will do extremely well overseas.

by Anonymousreply 2405/24/2013

I thought the original Hangover was hysterical and I hate stupid comedies. Can't stand Sandler and those dam frat boy comedies.

The second one was darker and not as good.

I will probably see this last one since the weekend here in the Northeast is pretty much a washout weather wise.

by Anonymousreply 2505/24/2013

Wanted to like the first one but I just didn't, not much funny in there. I also am getting a little tired of the stupid straight White guy still acting like a teenager/college boy bullshit. Maybe somebody needs to go through the old comedy film vault and give some of them a twist and an update, mine the comedy gold.

by Anonymousreply 2605/24/2013

We'll see R24. Comedy doesn't travel well overseas usually though I think the first two did well. There's tons of action movies this summer which may be more appealing to foreigners too.

by Anonymousreply 2705/24/2013

For some reason I like straight guy fantasy films. Maybe I like to feel like a teen again?

by Anonymousreply 2805/24/2013

Fuck Hangover Part 3, I'm doing Star Trek Into Darkness a couple of more times this weekend!

by Anonymousreply 2905/24/2013

That tiny penised Asian man scares me.

by Anonymousreply 3005/24/2013

That Jeong guy is criminally unfunny and supposedly is the big focus of the movie. No thanks.

by Anonymousreply 3105/24/2013

I just saw it and it's not that good. Skip it and see "Mud" instead.

by Anonymousreply 3205/24/2013

Did they page Dr. Faggot again?

by Anonymousreply 3305/24/2013

Laughed my tush off at the first one. Hated the second one. Hated! Not bothering to see the third one. Doesn't one or more the guys die in H3? Better things to do w/ my 2 hrs.

by Anonymousreply 3405/25/2013

As of right now, Hangover 3 is at a measley 21% at Rotten Tomatoes, whereas Fast and Furious 6 is at a surprising 73%. Expect F&F6 to win the weekend big time.

by Anonymousreply 3505/25/2013

Ed Helms is a gay. Pass it on.

by Anonymousreply 3605/25/2013

I walked out of the first one.

by Anonymousreply 3705/25/2013

Me too r20!

by Anonymousreply 3805/25/2013

r37, I would've walked out, too, but I didn't want to be rude to my date, who was laughing his ass off. Needless to say, we didn't have another date.

by Anonymousreply 3905/25/2013

It barely beat out 2nd weekend Star Trek.

by Anonymousreply 4005/27/2013

Didn't like any of the 3. Fell asleep during the 1st one.

by Anonymousreply 4105/27/2013

R36, do you know for sure if Ed is gay? I've been thinking for a while that he might be.

by Anonymousreply 4205/27/2013

I liked the first two. I haven't seen the third.

by Anonymousreply 4305/27/2013

Is it flopping in the way actual human beings understand the term, or is it only flopping in Nikki "Schadenfreude" Finke terms (i.e. it's only slightly underperforming)?

Same thing! There's nothing more embarrassing than releasing a movie that doesn't break box office records, you slacker!

by Anonymousreply 4505/27/2013

Why is this Bradley Cooper asshole EVERYWHERE lately??? The last 2 years you can't do anything without seeing or hearing about his plain looking ass.

by Anonymousreply 4605/27/2013

And a closeted actor in a movie with homophobic humor is so uncool, can't wait until he's outed.

by Anonymousreply 4705/29/2013

Hell, r47, who cares whether Bradley is straight or gay? If he had any kind of conscience, he could've refused to say the "Paging Dr. Faggot" line. It was repulsive.

by Anonymousreply 4805/29/2013

I actually liked it better than the second, still nothing special though.

by Anonymousreply 4905/29/2013

The Hangover movies really highlight what a terrible actor Cooper is.

by Anonymousreply 5005/29/2013

part 3 is actually kind of funny but in the end Im only watching to see if Cooper shows his hole.
