Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Bros. for its use of a fake Louis Vuitton bag in The Hangover Part II, demanding that the scene in question be removed. So random.

In the film, Zach Galifianakis' Alan tells Stu not to mess with his luggage, saying, "Careful, that is ... that is a Louis Vuitton." He pronounces it Lewis. Awesome.

Louis Vuitton has issues with this, for multiple reasons:

For one, Warner Bros. never got permission to use its precious and valuable trademark. Moreover, the luggage in the movie is a knockoff, or so the brand claims.

Also awesome, if you're a viewer. Not not for L.V.

The company is seeking damages on top of an injunction prohibiting Warner Bros. from distributing The Hangover 2 going forward as long as the luggage scene appears.

If you recall, the studio was also sued for its use of Mike Tyson's face tattoo on Ed Helms' character in the sequel, even though Tyson appeared in the original.

Can't make this stuff up ...

In news about as surprising as a political figure involved in absurd sexual antics, The Hangover: Part III is already moving ahead, according to reports.

After the success of the first movie and the monumental opening of The Hangover: Part II, was there ever much doubt about a third installment?

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine recently, Zach Galifiankis stated: "They want to do a Hangover III, I'm getting fricking phone calls already."

The Wolfpack

Galifiankis also spoke of a possible move away from the basic premise, one that was essentially repeated verbatim for The Hangover: Part II.

He mentioned the possibility of the film being set in an asylum with Alan as a resident and the rest of the gang attempting to break him out.

Amsterdam has been rumored as a possible destination for the third film, which seems like a logical destination. But Todd Philips isn't sure.

The director said that “As far as where it takes place, I’m very open, like the Olympic committee, to being presented and pitched by cities, flown around with wine and women and bribed and then I will make my decision.”

What do you think? Would you see The Hangover: Part III?

Box office receipts speak louder than paid professionals.

Despite a critical lambasting, The Hangover Part II set multiple theatrical records over Memorial Day Weekend, prompting talk of another film in this franchise. Director Todd Phillips reportedly has ideas for where to go next, with Amsterdam a possible destination for Stu and company.

Seems apt, doesn't it? Craig Mazin has already been hired to write the third installment.

Despite harsh reviews, the comedy earned $86.5 million from Thursday to Sunday, the best three-day weekend ever for a live-action comedy and the second-best opening of all-time for an R-rated film, just falling short of The Matrix Reloaded.

If you've seen The Hangover, you know Mike Tyson has a small, but pivotal and hilarious role. He's not in the sequel, but if you've seen The Hangover 2 previews, you know his infamous face tattoo is - when Ed Helms wakes up with it.

The guy who tattooed Tyson in real life years ago is unamused.

S. Victor Whitmill claims he created AND copyrighted the tat he affixed to Mike Tyson's face in 2003, and is suing Warner Bros. in federal court.

Whitmill says he's never allowed anyone to use the image and that the studio violated his copyright by using it on a hung over Helms in the film.

In addition to wanting the scenes cut from the film (don't bet on it) Whitmill is also demanding a cash settlement of an undisclosed amount.

No comment yet from Tyson, who remains certifiably nuts for having that design - however artistic - tattooed on his face. His face.

Reuniting the original cast and set in Thailand, The Hangover Part 2 comes out next month and might even live up to the hilarity of the original.

Following the same premise as the 2009 hit, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis hit up a bachelor party and things go terribly awry.

Missing from Part 2 is Mike Tyson, however, Helms’ character Stu pays homage to the former heavyweight champion whack job in the clip below.

How? He wakes up with a tribal tattoo on his face. His face.

Follow the jump for a second TV spot for the film, in which the Jonas Brothers earn a mention ... and apparently have a big fan among the wolf pack.

Just a week after the release of the extended trailer for The Hangover Part 2, it's been yanked from theaters, specifically after it was shown before Source Code.

Why? Because it looked so much like the original that the mystery is gone? Because of the banana scene? Because Jake Gyllenhaal didn't want to be upstaged?

No one really knows, but director Todd Phillips says it's not because it's too graphic. In fact, he insists it's "too PG-13" to show what the movie's really about.

Warner Bros said only this in a statement: "In our haste to meet placement schedules for this trailer, we failed to properly vet the final version with the MPAA. We acted immediately to correct the mistake and removed the trailer from screens."

What do you think? Why pull it a week after the trailer's release?
