‘Hangover 2′ First Look: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha And Zach Galifianakis Head For Thailand

Last week, director Todd Phillips confirmed a few bare-bones details about his sequel to The Hangover,” the 2008 film that launched the stars of Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis and went on to become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. “It takes place in Bangkok and L.A.,” Phillips said, adding, “There’s gonna be some f–ked-up surprises.”

Today, we have our first look at “The Hangover 2” in the form of a photo from the Ontario, California, set. The pic shows our boys Cooper, Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha getting ready to hop a plane to Thailand from the Ontario Airport. (Yeah, we know we said the film is set in Bangkok and L.A. — Ontario Airport doubles for LAX).

In addition to proving that production on the film is underway, the image is also notable in that it confirms that Justin Bartha — whose involvement in the picture had heretofore been only a rumor — is indeed on board for part deux. Check out the “Hangover 2″ photo after the jump.

As we said before, we’re still not sure what shenanigans the fellas will get up to in Thailand or even what the cause of their trip will be. But it should be fun to see how Bartha’s character is integrated this time around — assuming he is integrated and doesn’t spend the duration of the film inadvertently locked in a Thai “massage parlor.”

What do you think of the photo? And are you pumped for Bradley, Zach and the boys’ new lost weekend in “The Hangover 2″? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
