When "The Hangover III" comes out, it promises to be an epic battle between good and evil: The goodness of humor and decency in filmmaking ("The Hangover"), and the evil of becoming a parody of oneself ("The Hangover Part II").

And that's probably why the producers have decided to rip off a Harry Potter poster as the first advertisement for the third installment of the trilogy, featuring Zach Galifianakis as Potter and Ken Jeong as the evil Lord Voldemort:

The third and last installment of the trilogy doesn't feature a wedding or a bachelor party, so unlike "The Hangover Part II," it won't be a simple redoing of the first film with names and places slightly altered. It's set to be released later this year.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that "The Hangover Part II" grossed $581 million worldwide, so producers no doubt have high hopes for part three.

Here's hoping Vegas makes a comeback...
