Robert Downey, Jr. Is Spitting Mad in New Trailer for Due Date
09.17.10 by BJSprecher
Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director Todd Philips' (The Hangover) latest comedy, Due Date, and it shows Robert Downey, Jr. (RDJ) like you've never seen him before. The suave, in-control persona of Tony Stark from the Iron Man movies that catapulted RDJ back to the top of the Hollywood A-list is nowhere in sight, replaced by Peter Highman, a rude, uptight expectant father who finds himself on the no-fly list with only five days to get home in time to witness the birth of his child. With few options, Highman is forced to tag along on a cross-country trip with slacker Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) and his dog. The odd-couple pairing is pure comedy as Tremblay's antics force Highman to the boiling point and beyond. This new trailer includes the first footage of Danny McBride, as well as a scene so gross-tacular (minute 1:05) that it will make you forget RDJ ever played a superhero.
Due Date was written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland. Juliette Lewis, Michelle Monaghan, Alan Arkin, RZA, and Jamie Foxx also star.
