Long Range Forecast: 'Megamind' and 'Due Date'

Featured Stories - on September 04, 2010 by Phil Contrino

An animated sci-fi flick and a road trip comedy will try to start November off on a high note

forecast9410.pngThis week, we've added two new films to the Long Range Forecast. Megamind and Due Date are both set to open on November 5.

Megamind's best asset is its very impressive voice cast. Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Brad Pitt have the kind of drawing power that's needed to make it easier for adults to say "Yes" when their kids beg them to see the latest effort from DreamWorks Animation. Expect another massive hit for the reliable animation house.

Due Date is poised to become a comedy classic and a massive box office success. Director Todd Phillips and stars Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis are at the top of their games, which means that audiences won't hesitate to line up. This road trip comedy is bound to become a Planes, Trains and Automobiles for a new generation.

Check out predictions for both films as well as others in the table below.
