Warner Bros Says Louis Vuitton Has No SuitCase In Hangover Lawsuit

louis-vuitton-sues-warner-bros-for-using-fake-louis-vuitton-in-hangover-2.jpg

Warner Bros is dealing with a hangover all right… a legal hangover!

In case you forgot, Louis Vuitton is suing the studio after they failed to get their permission to use their trademark in the The Hangover II.

Now almost 3 months later, Warner Bros is asking a judge to throw the lawsuit out because the bag was "artistically relevant" to the film.

WB adds the counterfeit bag "sets the stage for the relationship" between Teddy and Alan, "who shows more concern for his designer luggage than for Teddy’s comfort".

This lawsuit gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "unwanted baggage!"

Another Hangover Lawsuit! This One Claims Plagiarism!

Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

hangover-2-poster__opt.jpg

Really? Is this guy serious? C'mon! Obviously, this is a tale as old as time! A fable passed down for generations! And besides, who hasn't gotten blackout wasted in Thailand, only the wake up with a tattoo on your face, a drug-dealing monkey at your side and ping pong balls … well, let's just end it there, huh!

Still, Warner Bros. is now facing a THIRD lawsuit against their flick The Hangover II, this time from a man who claims the studio stole the story from his Asian adventures. According to Alan Rubin, who is representing himself, the concept was stolen from a script he had written about his outrageous life after he married a Japanese woman named Tamayo in 2007. In his complaint, he asserts:

PETA Sends A Letter To Director Cameron Crowe

Filed under: Film FlickersPETAMonkeyAnimal Cruelty

Cameron Crowe

A leading primatologist, Dr. Malik, has sent a letter to director Cameron Crowe on PETA’s behalf in response to recent comments made by Crowe.

Crowe was talking about Crystal, the capuchin monkey most recently in the Hangover II, saying she is:

"not just the hottest actress around, but also the most compelling."

He also said that monkeys are:

"like Mickey Rourke [because they] do nothing you tell them to."

In the letter, Dr. Malik explains how the “highly social” monkeys are taken from their mothers at birth, kept in relative isolation, and not given proper exercise on movie sets.

So sad!

She compells him to use today's technology, such as animatroincs or CGI, instead of animal actors. Not a bad idea, especially after such a big CGI hit like Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Read Dr. Malik’s entire letter after the jump…

This is really unfortunate.

A stuntman on the set of Hangover II is suing Warner Bros. after a stung went wrong, leaving him with brain injuries.

Scott McLean was Ed Helms' stunt double on the Bangkok, Thailand set when he was injured when two cars that were traveling at high speeds collided.

The scene required "precision and timing," but after shooting had already beguin, the film's stunt coordinator, who is also being sued, had changed the timing sequence.

McLean says:
