Film trailer: Robert Downey Jr.’s 'Due Date'
Friday 16 July 2010
The first trailer for the comedy
Due Date, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis (
The Hangover), was released Thursday to play in theaters this weekend.
Compared to Planes, Trains and Automobiles, this road movie finds a soon-to-be new father (Downey) and quirky aspiring actor (Galifianakis) with dog in tow, racing across the country together for the birth of the baby.
Funny dialogue and crazy antics turn this screwball comedy into an action-adventure with overturned cars and trouble that threatens to prevent the pair from arriving on time. Jamie Foxx ( The Soloist) also appears in the trailer.
Directed by Todd Phillips who worked with Galifianakis in The Hangover, the film releases November 5.
