    As expected, the Wolfpack will be back. Again. Even before the massively successful, award-winning "The Hangover Part II" took in over $580 million worldwide, Todd Phillips was already talking up a third entry, and the resulting box office pretty much guaranteed it was gonna happen. M...

    Todd Phillips Eyes Stoner Weapons Pic 'Arms And The Dudes' As A Potential Directing Vehicle

    After three straight films all ostensibly working from the same formula -- "The Hangover" and "Due Date" films are all ostensibly cut from the same comedic cloth of fish-out-of-water/comedic journey pics -- it seems like director Todd Phillips is looking for a slight change of pace and direction. So...

    Weekend Box Office: Despite All Warnings, Everybody Sees 'The Hangover Part II'

    In the future, sequels to all our popular films will not require writers, directors, or even new talent. Sure, they might re-hire some of the people responsible for the first film, but by and large, the leading users of Xerox technology will be Hollywood executives. At least, that’s if the mammoth opening for “The Hangover Part II” is any indication, as the film took advantage of the holiday weekend to score an expected $137 million over this five day period. Critics seemed to do everything short of design spreadsheets to illustrate just how Todd Phillips and company were replicating the exact story of the first film (arguably, the marketing ...

    Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection. (It's also the biggest selling comedy DVD of all time. Jesus.) The prospect of another movie, again sta...

    SXSW: Todd Phillips Auditioned Zach Galifianakis For 'Road Trip,' Says Unrated DVDs A DGA Violation

    Along with Judd Apatow, Todd Phillips is one of a few filmmakers you could say was truly responsible for shaping the modern studio comedy over the last decade. “Old School” and “The Hangover” practically set the template for raunchy-but-realistic man-centric comedies, launching the big-screen career...
