Making It Rain On Them Hoes: ‘The Hangover: Part II’ Breaks Box Office Record Despite So-So Reviews

- By Bossip Staff

The talk from movie people hasn’t been that great about the sequel to last year’s surprise comedy hit “The Hangover.” But that hasn’t stopped fans of “The Wolf Pack” from putting “The Hangover: Part II” in Hollyweird history books in just three days.

Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms make more than just trouble — they make money. Raking in record numbers at the box office, ‘The Hangover: Part II’ is launching the summer movie season with a 4-day Memorial Day weekend take (Friday-Monday) of approximately $105 million, as estimated today by Deadline.

The dudes-in-distress sequel scored the largest opening ever for an R-rated comedy, and it dominates first place over other two sequels also raking in big bucks right now. In second place: Jack Black and Angelina Jolie’s ‘Kung Fu Panda 2,’ predicted to make $62 million for the four-day holiday period in its premiere weekend in theaters.

Johnny Depp’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,’ which opened a week ago, is estimated to make another $53 million this Memorial Day weekend, followed by Kristen Wiig’s ‘Bridesmaids,’ expected to earn another $21.5 million.

The Wolf Pack, and ‘Hangover 2’ director Todd Phillips, must be cheering the news, and now, the wildly profitable opening has fans wondering if a ‘Hangover 3’ is in store.

Did you contribute your $10 to the “Hangover 2” weekend totals? Did you love it as much as the first one?
