I took a little R&R this past week in Garden City, Utah, so there wasn’t much posting going on. I’ve never missed a Trailer Tuesday, so while this is belated, it’s still valid.
Longtime AATM reader Danny championed the new Due Date trailer last week after I posted the preview for Middle Men, and while he thought it was gut-busting goodness, I’m not that impressed and, subsequently, this makes me kind of pissed off. How can a movie directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and starring Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man 2), Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) and Michelle Monaghan (Gone Baby Gone) have such a crappy trailer?
I’ll tell you with two words: Jamie Foxx. I can’t stand him or his acting. The guy is poison. Yeah, I said it. I don’t care if he won an Oscar for playing Ray Charles and I don’t care if he’s BFFs with Kanye West. I think he sucks and is straight up CBO (that’s Chris Bosh Overrated, for the uneducated).
Furthermore, despite the success of The Hangover, let’s also remember Todd Phillips is the man behind Starsky & Hutch and School for Scoundrels, both of which were cinematic turds. So if Due Date bombs at the box office, count me not surprised. Check out the trailer after the jump and give me your opinion.
