The latest trailer for 'Due Date,' Todd Phillips' road trip comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as mismatched travel companions, won't dispel any prior complaints that it resembles a remake of 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' mixed with Phillips' own 'The Hangover.' But it will show you additional players, such as Michelle Monaghan as Downey's very pregnant wife and Danny McBride as a manager of a check cashing place. Also, Jamie Foxx is revealed to have a bigger role than previously thought, and we finally learn just why Downey can't just fly home to witness the birth of his son.
Apple has premiered this new spot (watch it after the jump), which features some of the best moments from the first trailer and the international trailer while also adding some new comedic bits. These include jokes involving a dog high from second-hand marijuana smoke and the accidental drinking of a dead man's ashes. The latter is only made funnier by Galifianakis' second sip, which along with comments made about the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam prove he's basically the same moron from 'The Hangover.' And don't the phone exchanges between Downey and Monaghan seem a bit familar, too?
Even if the plot isn't too original, though, let's remember that 'The Hangover' was also just a reworking of 'Dude, Where's My Car?' But it didn't really matter because the movie is hilarious. This will probably be just as funny, if not funnier. And you can be certain the trailers we've gotten so far are leaving out a lot of the best stuff, since Phillips' usual raunchy material isn't suitable for green band. With less than two months til 'Due Date' opens, we'll probably get the red band version very soon. For now, check out the clean trailer below and let us know if you're looking forward to the pairing of Downey and Galifianakis.
