article imageBradley Cooper: Hangover II changed my life

By Lewis McCathie     May 24, 2011 in Entertainment
Bradley Cooper, star of the upcoming summer smash hit movie 'The Hangover: Part II' has sensationally revealed that filming the sequel to the 2009 movie was a life-changing experience for him.
According to the Daily Record, the A-list movie star said:
"It was the most difficult shoot I've ever done by far.
"I thought nothing would be harder than A-Team, but this was."
Todd Phillips, the director, feels the same, as do Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms.
"We put our heart into this movie - it almost killed us."
Shooting in the not only extremely hot, but extremely chaotic Thai capital for nine weeks, all of the main cast subsequently ended up in hospital.
They were treated for a range of things, from sheer exhaustion to food poisoning.
As for the stunts;
"We'd be on the ground, dirty, with fish blood dripping on us..and that became normal.
"But it also adds to the heightened sense of craziness that our characters have to go through."
Both movie critics and movie-goers are eagerly-anticipating the follow-up to the 2009 surprise box-office success that was The Hangover.
Back in 2009, movie critics credited the success of 'The Hangover' to the beginning of the economic downturn, as film fans welcomed a much needed escape from financial insecurity. The summer box office smash went on to gross almost $300 million worldwide. Now fans cannot wait for a second installment, and Cooper believes fans will love it.
"It's dark, it's gritty - and hopefully it's funny," he said.
Having just seen 'Limitless' succeed at the box office - making $127 million worldwide so far- he will be hoping 'The Hangover: Part II' will follow suit.
Just as Herald Sun reports, the sequel centres on the character Stu this time - played by Ed Helms- as the 'wolf pack' head to Bangkok for his bachelor party, where they befriend a cigarette smoking monkey and find themselves yet again tangled up with Asian 'gangsta' Mr Chow - played by Ken Jeong.
'The Hangover: Part II' hits theaters May 26th.
