The Judge Trailer: Robert Downey Jr. Defends His Dad

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The first trailer for The Judge is here and we are seriously intrigued by the upcoming legal-family drama starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall.

Downey portrays a wildly successful defense lawyer who has made a fortune defending some of the lowest of the low. He gets a call that will change his life when he learns that his mother has passed away and he has to head home to Indiana for the funeral.

One thing, he and his father (Duvall) do not get along… like, at all!  

While there, his father is arrested for murder and the son must put aside all his resentment for his tough as nails dad and defend him in a case that Duvall claims is an accident being blown way out of proportion.

The Judge lands October 10 and also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Melissa Leo, Leighton Meester, Ken Howard, Balthazar Getty and Dax Shepard.

The film's poster and a few stills have also premiered, check them out in the slideshow below! In the mood for some delicious Downey, watch Iron Man 3 online!
