Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) Due Date and it looks awesome with a capital A. Seriously, if you watch the trailer and don’t laugh, you probably have something wrong with you. Starring Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey, Jr., the film is about a father trying to rush back across the country to make it to his wife’s birth and Galifianakis plays an aspiring actor who becomes Downey’s traveling companion. The film has been described as Trains, Planes, and Automobiles meets The Hangover. And based on the trailer, I think the comparison is dead on. Hit the jump to laugh. Due Date gets released November 5, 2010.
The film co-stars Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan.
In theatres on November 5

Comedy. 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.
