Due Date
From "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips, "Due Date" throws two unlikely companions together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous.

Expectant first-time father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) looks forward to his new child's due date five days away.

As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at his wife's side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when an encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan on a cross-country trip that will ultimately destroy ...

"Harry Potter" has worked its magic on the U.S. box office chart once again, opening with a spell-binding gross of $125.1 million.

Jamie Foxx: 'I Was Baked While I Was Voting'

Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx was disappointed California's new medical marijuana bill didn't pass during last week's mid-term U.S. elections.

He explained, "I was baked while I was in there voting, and I don't remember what I voted for...Everybody knows that I do (marijuana)...I've got weed-smoking lips."

Jamie stars in "Due Date," a road movie concerning a soon-to-be father (Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth -- with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Galifianakis) who's along for the ride.

Ladies aren't the only ones dressing to impress these days. Robert Downey Jr. rocked a sweater vest under a navy blue suit at the "Due Date" premiere.

However, Robert's co-star Zach Galifianakis wore his trademark beanie and paired it with a brown, corduroy three piece suit.

Mustaches can work on the right guy. Just ask James Franco who stepped out for his new movie "127 Hours."

Ricky Martin wore a winter hat while promoting his new book, and Rolling Stones star Keith Richards was also pimping a new book and showed he's still a trendsetter while wearing a white scarf.

Robert Downey Jr. Got More Flack For Spitting On Dog Than Punching Child In 'Due Date'

November 6th, 2010 4:59pm EDT
You thought you knew some dark stuff about Robert Downey, Jr. before? He’s been saving the real drama for his latest movie, a comedy. In Due Date, Downey plays a frantic businessman traveling across country with an aspiring actor (Zach Galifianakis) who keeps making the trip harder. For the sake of art, Downey let loose.

“I don't know why but it was an invitation to me to get in to touch with everything that annoys me about everyone and all the fear that I have about everything that everyone can relate to,” Downey said. “So in a way I felt like I was a conduit to this. It wasn’t very pleas...

'Due Date' Review: 'Two Jews On Film' Agree 'Due Date' Is No 'Hangover' (Video)

November 5th, 2010 9:10am EDT
'Due Date' directed by Todd Phillips (Hangover) stars Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis as two unlikely companions thrown together on a road trip, that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous. Downey plays Peter Highman, an expectant first time father whose wife's (Michelle Monaghan) due date is only days away. As he hurries to catch a flight home to Los Angeles from Atlanta, his chance encounter with aspiring actor and disaster-magnet Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis) leads to the two of them being tossed off the plane and placed on a no-fly list.

Review: 'Due Date' Is Formulaic But Still Funny

November 4th, 2010 10:15am EDT
Due Date
Even though the director Todd Philips does not blaze any new trails with his road trip/buddy comedy “Due Date,” he effectively uses genre conventions and borrows elements from his previous works to make an amusing film. “Due Date” combines the awkward situations of “The Hangover” with a little bit of the sophomoric humor in 2000’s “Road Trip.” Like “The Hangover,” this movie also contains the oddball comedian Zach Galifianakis, a man whose characters are epitome of oblivious.

Probably the most well-known convention used by “Due Date” though, is the pairing of characters with complete o...

'Due Date' Shows Director Todd Phillips' Growth

November 4th, 2010 9:32am EDT
Due Date doesn’t have to be deep. Just put Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis in a car and there’s your movie. It has a little more to say about grown men though. Downey plays a businessman trying to get home in time for the birth of his firstborn. Galifianakis plays a man-child carrying his father’s ashes across the country.

“While it is a road movie and it is a comedy at it's core it is a movie about Zach who's going through a drama, Zach's character Ethan Tremblay having just lost his father and Robert who's just about to become a father for the first time,” director Todd Phillips ...

Zach Galifianakis Verbally Abused By His 'Hangover' Character

Funnyman Zach Galifianakis was verbally abused by a man dressed up as his oddball The Hangover character at Halloween - when he tried to thank the guy for honoring his creation.

The actor was shooting new film Due Date in New Mexico last year when the cast attended a local Halloween party and Galifianakis met his double.

He recalls, "I didn't really know anybody at the party; I went with a couple of people from work. I was just dressed like me and there was a guy there dressed as the character from The Hangover and I thought it would be interesting to walk up to him and say, 'Hey, you'r...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Megamind,' 'Due Date,' & More

November 1st, 2010 9:41am EDT
I’m writing this week’s column on Halloween, so I wish my readers a happy and safe holiday. There are two things I’m looking forward to later tonight: a special Halloween screening of the cult classic “Evil Dead 2” at one of my local theaters and the premiere of the AMC television show “The Walking Dead.” As a zombie aficionado I’m curious to see how they will be able to stretch out the concept into an entire series. I’m hopeful that it will be entertaining.

Arriving this week in theaters are the Will Ferrell animated comedy “Megamind,” the roadtrip movie “Due Date,” the true life thril...

Juliette Lewis Stops Traffic In Lovely Lavender Dress

Juliette Lewis attended the L.A. premiere of "Due Date" in Hollywood yesterday looking quite respectable in a pretty lavender gown. We think she's looking much better than she did with the blue locks she sported at "The Switch" premiere over the summer.

The actress was involved in a hit-and-run crash earlier this month. She was heading home from a Los Angeles screening of her new film "Conviction" when another vehicle slammed into the side of the car she was a passenger in at an intersection in Burbank.

She was taken to a hospital and treated for whiplash before returning home to continu...

"The Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis talks about his masturbation scene in new comedy "Due Date."

He explains, "I am too much of a snob to think I would like to see that in a movie. I dislike any sex scenes in movies. But this is a first for me, so I'm eager to see how people react."

Fall Movie Preview Part 3: November

September 8th, 2010 10:20am EDT
harry potter
November will unleash on moviegoers some of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. Sure to be the biggest opener of the month will be “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” which will ease fans into the end of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise. Director David Yates returns to helm the last two installments of the series which will be much appreciated by die-hard fans of the books and movies. Also exciting, and not surprising, is “Deathly Hallows” will be 3D which may result in the movie being just another flop in the 3D craze. Few movies have successfully employed the 3D t...

Robert Downey Jr. Sets Sights On Directing

June 17th, 2010 9:45am EDT
After struggling for prominence in Hollywood for over 20 years, Robert Downey Jr. is arguably the biggest movie star in the world right now. According to Box Office Mojo, “Iron Man 2,” the sequel to the movie which finally made Downey a household name, has grossed over $300 million domestically and has become one of only a few successful comic book adaptation franchises. Downey is also set to re-team with director Guy Ritchie for a sequel to “Sherlock Holmes” which had an impressive box office performance late last year and won Downey both critical praise and accolades. As if that wasn’t en...

Michelle Monaghan arrived at the "Iron Man 2" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday looking slim and sexy in a eye-catching fuschia dress. We think the dress is attractive, but we don't like it paired with the black and gold heels. What do you think?

Michelle stars in the upcoming film "Due Date" about a soon-to-be father (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth - with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Zach Galifianakis) who's along for the ride.
