The Hangover is one of the classic movie series of the new millennium which was under the directorial of Todd Phillips and produced by Daniel Goldberg. Although the trilogy has supposed to be concluded with their third film in 2013, rumors starting floating around regarding the possibility of Hangover 4. Is it true? Let's find it down below:
About: The Hangover
The movie series has been described as one of the best comedy movies of all time with its witty script and perfect dialogue delivery by its well-crafted and quirky characters. The wacky hilarious movie can probably be summed up as a 'classic bachelor party gone wrong.
The first installment of the series hit the big screens in 2009 and created a massive buzz among the audience. Besides, generating rising commercial success, the installment gained wide praise and acclaim from the critics. The film even managed to bag an award at the Golden Globe as well as earned the title of the highest R-rated comedy film of all time domestically speaking. The Hangover sat on that throne for quite a while until MCU's and Ryan Reynolds starring film Deadpool arrived in 2016 and claimed it.
For obvious reasons, The Hangover created its space in the major cult films which ultimately resulted in the one solo film turning into a full-blown franchise and giving us a trilogy as well as extending the wild and raunchy misadventure of the Wolfpack. The movies were premiered from year 2000 to 2013 and globally grossed more than 1.4 billion dollars.
The last installment of the film series premiered in 2013 and was titled 'The Hangover Part III'. The commercial poster of the last feature film came with the message 'The Epic Finale to the Hangover Trilogy', which obviously meant that the series would conclude with this film. However, in 2016 a poster went viral on social media which implied that Hangover 4 is to happen, leaving us all in wonder whether we have more in the store for us.
Hangover 4: When will it Release?| Expected
The third (probably the last) installment of the Hangover franchise was released nearly eight years ago and currently, there has been no news or announcements either by the creators or by the cast members regarding the probability of Hangover 4.
However, due to its popularity along with a major and worldwide fanbase backing up the franchise, there is a possibility we might get to witness more from the movie series. Nevertheless, the odds of Hangover 4 happening seem slightly less owing to the fact the movie's performance decreased with each passing installment.
In the best-case scenario, we might get a rebooted version of the franchise or possibly a spin-off. The franchise's director and producer, Todd Phillips is presently booked with a tight schedule as many of his forthcoming projects are to go on floors soon, and among them was the recently announced sequel to DC's Joker.
Regardless, if the creators magically announce the happening of Hangover 4 then we can expect the film to release sometime in the year 2024 or probably in later years.
