A handful of images for the upcoming The Hangover 2, including the recent photo of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis, were released earlier this week. Today, a teaser trailer for director Todd Phillips' sequel was also released, a sequel that Phillips admitted to MTV was one of many being released this summer.

Yeah, this summer's gonna be crazy. Somebody told me yesterday that this year has more sequels than ever. And I was thinking to myself how crazy that is and then I realize I'm actually part of the problem. I've never done a sequel before, so I was really outraged until I just realized I just did one.
Today's Challenge: Can you link Due Date to Megamind, both out today on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time?
Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

"...a rambling cross-country journey that makes a lot of familiar buddy-movie stops along the way, but seldom suffers for it."— Keith Phipps, Onion AV Club
"The unexpected pairing of Galifianakis and Downey is a pleasure — they're an unlikely duo so off in their chemistry as to be bizarrely on."— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"...the movie probably contains enough laughs to satisfy the weekend audience. Where it falls short is in the characters and relationships."— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...the plot feels drearily linear and predictably episodic..."— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...serves up its share of laughs while not actually providing a terribly enjoyable time because of a queasy undercurrent that never goes away."— Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
Warner Bros. has released two hilarious new clips from director Todd Philips' (The Hangover) upcoming road trip comedy, Due Date. When uptight expectant father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) is placed on a no-fly list, he finds himself with only five days to make it back home to witness the birth of his child. With few options, Highman decides to hitch a ride with Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis), an annoying aspiring actor and all-around slacker, and his dog. In the first new clip, Tremblay tries to put his disgruntled passenger in his place for criticizing his decision to take a detour to score some weed. watch both Due Date clips >> Posted 10.29.10 by BrentJS
Warner Bros. is beating the drum for Todd Phillips' Due Date by releasing four new TV spots for the upcoming comedy. Due Date is Phillips' follow-up to The Hangover, and sees Robert Downey, Jr. as an expectant father who is forced to take a cross-country trip with an annoying slacker (Zach Galifianakis) and his dog. The first TV spot features co-star Danny McBride. watch the 3 other spots >> Posted 10.10.10 by Ryan
Warner Bros. has released four new posters for the upcoming road trip comedy Due Date. Directed by Todd Philips (The Hangover), Due Date stars Robert Downey, Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as Peter Highman and Ethan Tremblay, a mis-matched pair of cross-country travelers with five days to reach their destination in time for Highman to witness the birth of his child. Though similar to the character posters that WB has been cranking out for its recent action movies like Jonah Hex and The Losers, it's hard to call these "character" posters. Sure, Highman and Tremblay are each featured on their own poster, but so are Tremblay's dog and a coffee can filled with Tremblay's father's ashes.
Due Date was written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland. Danny McBride, Juliette Lewis, Michelle Monaghan, Alan Arkin, RZA, and Jamie Foxx also star. Posted 09.19.10 by BrentJS
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. watch the new trailer >> Posted 09.17.10 by BrentJS
