Many people would think that since at the end of the first movie and with the info given in the teaser for the sequel that the title for the second movie would be Harold & Kumar Go to Amsterdam. This does not seem to be the case in an interview with Kal Penn on November 16th, 2006 he talked about the movie being called Harold and Kumar go to Las Vegas.
While I was poking around the internet yesterday on one of the movie trailer sites I visit regularly they (and as i found out many other sites) are reporting the sequel as being titled Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Granted the Amsterdam thing has been done many times most notably in EuroTrip (the movie H&K reference in the teaser for H&K 2 as "sucking").
John Cho & Kal Penn who play Harold Lee and Kumar Patel respectively have both signed contracts for a 3 picture deal, that doesn’t mean they (the movie companies) will make all 3 but they do have the option.
This post really isn’t to complain I am a fan of the first movie and I like what I’m seeing of the second, its more to bring to peoples attention that things may not always be what is implied. I just hope they don’t screw this series up. We will all know soon enough (what ever title they decide) Harold and Kumar 2 is slated for an April 4th, 2008 release.
