It's a big week for releases as we inch closer to the holiday movie season. Everything from raunchy R-rated comedies to CGI superhero family-films to true-life political thrillers are vying for your dollar. Which one will take the top spot at the box office this weekend?
New and Noteworthy: 'Due Date'
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Jamie Foxx
Directed by: Todd Phillips
What's It About? RDJ plays a high-strung father-to-be, who's trying to get across the country in time for the birth of his son. The simple road trip goes wildly out of control thanks to his travel buddy, an oddball aspiring actor played by oddball successful actor Zach Galifianakis.
Why Should You See It? Zach G. and director Todd Phillips are the kings of movie comedies these days, thanks to last year's phenomenon, 'The Hangover.' The only way the pair could follow up that movie's success was by snagging the most charismatic man in Hollywood to join them. Watching the insanity unfold between Iron Man and the 'Between Two Ferns' talk show host is set to be the biggest buddy-comedy team-up in recent history.
You Might Like It If You Like: 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles,' 'The Odd Couple' with more swearing, a not-college-set version of Phillips' 'Road Trip.'
