This isn’t at all what I expected from the marketing campaign for The Hangover Part III but I like it nonetheless. What we have here is a parody poster for the film, which makes fun of the iconic poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.
While we wait for the trailer to drop tomorrow, this poster will have to do, and it’s pretty amusing. It reminds us that “It All Ends” with the third entry in the franchise, which may be a good, or bad, thing depending on how this one turns out.
Admittedly, the joke they are teasing about is two years old already, so not sure why they decided to mock it. That being said, it did make me smile, so I suppose it achieved its desired effect. There’s also a nice reminder of the gang’s return to Vegas in the background, though I doubt they are going to cause all that destruction. Who knows though? All we know about the story is that it “brings the group together when something from the first movie comes back to haunt them.” So really, at this point, anything is possible.
Overall, it’s just nice to see the marketing campaign finally picking up for this one, since we’ve seen next to nothing from the film so far and it arrives in just a few months. I’m pretty stoked to see the trailer tomorrow and of course, we’ll have it for you as soon as it’s available, so make sure to check back throughout the day.
The Hangover Part III arrives on May 24th, 2013. We’ve inserted both the Harry Potter and Hangover posters below, so you can compare the two. Check them out and let us know what you think in the comments. Clever marketing or lame poster?
