New Trailer for The Judge Starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall

11 September 2014 4:27 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Reviews have been mixed since it premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, but the following trailer which has been released today for The Judge may just go some way in helping you decide whether or not the movie (which is no longer considered a serious Oscar contender) is worth watching!

The Judge is an upcoming thriller and family drama which sees Iron Man and Avengers Assemble star Robert Downey Jr. as a successful defence attorney who ends up battling it out with Fargo’s Billy Bob Thornton (in the courtroom) after he reluctantly returns home for his mother’s funeral.

It’s then that he discovers that his estranged father (The Godfather’s Robert Duvall), the town’s judge who now suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder and is set to stand trial for the crime.

New Trailer for The Judge Amplifies the Drama, Puts Robert Downey Jr. in Crisis

11 September 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming thriller/family drama The Judge.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  This new look at the film has a decidedly more emo, awards-baiting, tone than the first trailer.  I'm curious to see the film myself, as I can sit through a bad movie just for a good Downey Jr. performance, but the early word out of Tiff has not been kind (I suspect that we'll have our own review of this one up soon). Hit the jump to check out the new trailer for The Judge.  The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy StrongBilly Bob ThorntonDax ShepardLeighton MeesterKen Howard, »

New One-Sheet for The Devils Hand

8 September 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

A new one-sheet for Christian E. Christiansen's new demonic thriller 'The Devil's Hand' (previously known as 'Where the Devil Hides') has emerged. It's a tad uninspired I'm afraid to report and unfortunately has to rely on oversized text to give it some impact. It does however feature a number of the main cast members that includes Alycia Debnam Carey, Adelaide Kane (below) and Leah Pipes. Director Christiansen, who directed the Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly 'Single White Female' styled thriller 'The Roommate', helms from a script penned by Karl Mueller. Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Jim McKeny, Katie Garfield, Ric Reitz and former 'Dexter' actress Jennifer Carpenter also star. Check out the poster below. »

Review: Robert Downey Jr. is guilty of being shameless in 'The Judge'

4 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Someone really, really needs a hug from Robert Downey Sr. Written by Nick Schenk, Bill Dubuque, and a blender full of better legal thrillers and family dramas, "The Judge" has been directed by David Dobkin almost entirely in ornate second-unit establishing shots and dramatic entrances. It is an insistent film, and "subtle" isn't even a consideration. This is a movie that will tell you the same piece of information nine times to make a point because it has no faith at all that you will understand it. It also features more endings than "Return Of The King," and it feels like a movie the younger, rowdier Robert Downey Jr. would have made fun of mercilessly. Honestly, as soon as the first scene with Downey played out, I started to worry. There's a trial. He's a big high-powered defense attorney. We meet him standing at a urinal. The opposing counsel, played by David Krumholtz, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Judge’

4 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gavels are slammed, tempers are lost and bowels are evacuated with great force in David Dobkin’s “The Judge,” Some elements ring truer than others in this ambitious blend of dysfunctional-family melodrama and legal procedural, but all of them are just about held together by the ferocious onscreen chemistry between two Roberts (Duvall and Downey Jr.), playing an overbearing father and a black-sheep son who find their already tense relationship literally put on trial. Refreshing as it is to see Downey step out of the Iron Man suit for a spell, the jury’s still out on whether an impressive talent roster can draw enough grown-up eyeballs to this overlong, resolutely old-fashioned male weepie, set for release Oct. 10 by Warner Bros.

For all the creakily elaborate Tennessee Williams-meets-John Grisham machinations cooked up by screenwriters Nick Schenk and Bill Dubuque (working from a story by Dobkin and Schenk), “The Judge »
