Gotham gets hit with ‘Hangover’

Pic preems at Landmark Sunshine Cinemas

Fans of the “Hangover” films packed two theaters at Landmark Sunshine Cinemas for the Gotham preem of Warners/Legendary’s “The Hangover Part II.” Later that Monday, the pic’s afterparty atop the Standard Hotel featured shoulder-to-shoulder stars, journos and groupies ordering novelty cocktails.

Stars Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis seemed to be having a good time, and helmer Todd Phillips offered up one quality drinking story. “When I was 11 years old, I drank a case of wine coolers with my best friend, which we stole from his older sister — a case meaning 12 — which we drank and I blacked out for real,” Phillips said. “And I never really got that drunk again.” – — Sam Thielman
