The next presentation was director Todd Phillips with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Todd came out and told a great story about how he always procrastinates and he kept putting off writing a speech so he just talked about what WB had shown so far and how awesome it looked. Was very funny. Then Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis did a comedy bit together which had everyone laughing.
But that was nothing, as the trailer for Due Date brought the thunder. The place was laughing as hard as last year for The Hangover. This is two years in a row Todd Phillips made the place erupt.
While the trailer went by very fast, it was loaded with stars like Danny McBride (who is in a wheelchair and he kicked Downey Jr.’s ass) and Jamie Foxx. The premise of the movie is Downey Jr. and Galifianakis are forced to travel across the country together in order to make it to his child’s birth on time. Downey Jr. is the one who is going to be a father.
I really cannot do justice to the trailer as it was loaded with Galifianakis doing crazy shit again and again and making everyone in the audience laughing out loud. After The Hangover and Due Date, Galifianakis is going to be able to do whatever the hell he wants. Someone smart would sign him to a big contract right now.
Also, in the trailer, we learn Galifianakis has a dog with him that constantly likes to masturbate and Galifianakis masturbates all the time as well. Seriously, this film is going to be huge.
