Get ready for some acting fireworks when Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall lock horns as estranged son and father in The Judge. Downey is a superstar defense attorney who heads home to bury his mother and visit with his brothers (including Vincent D'Onofrio). But, will he make up with his small town judge father? We're guessing no.
But, as you can see in The Judge trailer, he may have to as his father has been charged with murder, and despite Duvall's misgivings, his best shot at justice is to use his son as his attorney. The film lands everywhere October 10 and features a stellar cast beyond those leads including Vera Farmiga as Downey's first love, Billy Bob Thornton as the thorny prosecutor and Dax Shepard as an in-over-his-head attorney whom Duvall would rather use.
