Todd Phillips’ “Due Date” definitely has the makings of another “The Hangover”. If nothing else, it looks insanely funny, with Robert Downey Jr. playing straight man to the wacky Zach Galifianakis, who looks like he’s in full wacky mode here. The film co-stars Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx shows up to play the second straight man to Galifianakis sometime later in the movie. Check out the first poster (left) and a new image below via Yahoo.
Peter Highman is an expectant first-time father whose wife’s due date is a mere five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan–on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter’s last nerve.
The film is due November 5, 2010.
