It’s finally here! After much anticipation the first trailer for the Hangover/Hunger Games parody The Hungover Games starring newly crowned B-movie maven Tara Reid, Robert Wagner and Jonathan Silverman (along with appearances by Hank Baskett, Bruce Jenner, Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer and Brandi Glanville among others) has been released!
Check it out:
In the clip we can see that The Hungover Games doesn’t just poke fun at The Hangover and The Hunger Games, it uses the “Districts” structure to parody everything from Django Unchained to Ted to pretty much every role Johnny Depp has played in the last ten years!
Also highlighted in the trailer are “The Real Housewives of District 8” including the afore-mentioned Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer and Brandi Glanville (above). We broke the story that the ladies would be appearing in the film waaaaaaaay back in February, and later updated with some photos from the set — and now we finally get to see them in action!
Oh man — seeing Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer together again makes me so nostalgic. Come back Camille! Come Back!
Meanwhile, Kendra Wilkinson’s husband Hank Baskett and Kris Jenner’s husband (at least for now) Bruce Jenner flirt with full-on drag as they play flamboyant hosts of The Games. Hank dons a hot pink ‘fro while Bruce Jenner, who is allegedly a fan of donning women’s apparel now and then, was sporting blue hair and matching blue lipstick.
Bruce and Hank’s appearance was actually captured for the Kendra On Top reality show and featured in the episode titled “Truce or Dare.”
Here’s the full episode — just fast forward to the 21:40 mark and then to the 27:00 mark for the Bruce and Hank hi-jinks:
