Another day, another lawsuit for The Hangover 2. The comedy sequel, which so far has racked up $581 million in worldwide box office grosses, is quite used to the lawsuits by now. They've dealt with one from Mike Tyson's tattoo artist who sued claiming the filmmakers used his unique design in the film without his permission, and then another from some weird dude who claimed Warner Bros. stole the whole concept of the film from his own warped real-life adventures. Now, all these months later, Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Bros. for allegedly using their luggage in the film's airport scene without the company's permission. Furthermore, they also claim the luggage used is a fake Louis Vuitton.
Obviously they're seeking damages, but they also want the movie yanked until the scenes featuring the bags are removed, which may prove a bit problematic for the studio since the film is now out on DVD and Blu-ray. We're not sure why LV waited this long to go after Warner Bros., or why the studio would feature such a well-known brand in the film without permission (isn't that something you learn on the first day of film school?), but if Louis Vuitton is right about all of it, then, yeah, that's a problem.
No word from Warner Bros. yet, though we expect this saga to pick back up once everyone returns from their holiday break. Check out part of the Louis Vuitton scene below, and let us know what you think. [via TMZ]
