Although the heart of The Judge is the father-son bond, or lack thereof, between Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, the latest The Judge trailer paints it as a courtroom pressure cooker that pits Billy Bob Thornton's prosecutor against Downey's defense attorney.
As you can see from that first The Judge trailer, Downey has to come to his estranged father's defense when the respected judge (Duvall) is charged with murder. To say that Duvall and Downey do not get along is a gross understatement.
Downey's lawyer is used to winning, and has become quite famous nationally for it. But, he may have his hands full with this case, in more ways than one.
The Judge lands in theaters October 10 and also features an all-star cast beyond the big three including Vincent D'Onofrio, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester and Balthazar Getty.
Also, it was one of our 15 TIFF films that will make headlines, so look for the buzz to start!
