The trailer for Robert Downey Jr.'s new movie, The Judge, was released today. Here's what RDJ wrote on his Facebook page about the movie-
Susan and I are delighted that this wound up being the first movie produced through our Team Downey production company at Warner Bros. It’s a drama with lots of heart and wit.... might be the best thing I've been part of yet...beginner’s luck, perhaps.
An original story from our director, David Dobkin, it’s a modern tale of conflict, judgment, death, regret, irony, family dysfunction, hilarity, and of course, unconditional love. When a miserable hotshot Chicago lawyer returns home to a small town in Indiana for his mother’s funeral, he is forced to deal with a lifetime at odds with his legendarily stoic superior court justice father (aka The Judge).
What could possibly go wrong? Shame and secrets, old flames and…murder perhaps?
This movie looks really, really good. I love Robert as Tony Stark but I'm looking forward to seeing him in a more dramatic role. Plus, it has Robert Duvall in it, so it is bound to be fantastic.
