Warner Bros. has released a “restricted clip” (it’s really just a red-band trailer) for Todd Phillips’ new comedy Due Date. The film stars Robert Downey Jr. as an expectant father whose trying to get across the country for the birth of his child. However, unfortunate circumstances force him to make that trip with an irritating companion played by Zach Galifianakis.
I saw the film last night and it’s funny. However, I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had seen less from the movie. This new restricted trailer spoils even more of the jokes and I think you should ignore it. However, if you’re just really hard-up for Due Date footage, then hit the jump. The film opens this Friday.

Here’s the official synopsis for Due Date:
Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) 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 (Zach Galifianakis) 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.
