Beach Boy Adam Brody Shows Off His Impressive Shirtless Body

6 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Adam Brody put his shirtless body on display while changing his outfit after a surfing session in La on Monday. The actor stood near his car as he shed his wetsuit, and in addition to a face full of sunscreen, he also showed off a pretty impressive set of abs and biceps - his wife of seven months, Leighton Meester, sure is one lucky girl. Adam and Leighton have been hanging out on the West Coast after splitting their time between La and NYC for most of the year; since Leighton wrapped her Broadway play Of Mice and Men in July, it seems as though the couple may have returned from the Big Apple for good. During a recent Reddit Ama, Adam was asked how his lovely wife was doing - to which he responded, "She's swell!" - and revealed how many kids he wants to have with the former Gossip Girl star, »

Adam Brody Strips Out of Wetsuit: See His Hot Shirtless Body!

21 September 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Who knew Seth Cohen was so buff? Adam Brody put on quite the show on Friday, Sept. 19, when he stripped out of his wetsuit next to his car after leaving the beach in Los Angeles.  Leighton Meester's new hubby, 34, looked toned and buff after years of playing the gangly, comic book-loving nerd Seth Cohen on the beloved series The O.C.  This toned physique might be the result of helping the Gossip Girl alum, 28, with some of the housework.  "I do some stuff but she definitely does [...] »

Watch: Robert Downey Jr. Passion Project 'The Judge' Gets New Trailer

17 September 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In the serious drama far from his usual franchise fare, Downey Jr. plays a big-shot NY lawyer who has to defend his own father, who's been accused of murdering his mother. Co-executive produced by Downey Jr. and directed by David Dobkin, "The Judge" fell flat with critics upon its Toronto world premiere despite the leading man's strong dramatic performance. But in terms of social media, it was the buzziest film of the fest. (Our Tiff review is here.) Warner Bros. releases the film theatrically on October 10 and in a sign of the times had Downey Jr. debut this second trailer, below, on his Twitter and Facebook. Venerable costars include Oscar contender Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D'Onofrio and Leighton Meester. »

Robert Downey Jr. Has Father Issues in New The Judge Trailer

17 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a new The Judge trailer for director David Dobkin’s upcoming drama, and it goes rather heavy on the sentimentality.  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.  Reviews out of the film’s Tiff premiere weren’t great and this trailer lays on the schmaltz pretty hard, but Downey Jr. still manages to be engaging.  I was also somewhat surprised to find out that Steven Spielberg’s longtime collaborator Janusz Kaminski was the cinematographer on the pic, marking another rare foray outside of his Spielberg partnership. Watch the new The Judge trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Dax ShepardLeighton MeesterKen HowardDavid KrumholtzBalthazar Getty, »

Watch: New Trailer For The 'The Judge' With Robert Downey Jr. Steps Into The Great Cathedral Of Justice

17 September 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He won't have his buddies in The Avengers by his side, or CGI spectacle to carry him, so for the upcoming dramedy "The Judge," Robert Downey Jr. will have to rely on his quick wit, and the kind of acting chops we don't see from the actor when he's out saving the world. Instead, he'll have to save Robert Duvall. A new trailer has dropped for the Tiff Opening Film, and it mostly avoids the funny stuff in order to focus on the uplifting and rousing moments instead. Co-starring Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton and Leighton Meester, the movie tells the story of a slick, big city defense lawyer with daddy issues, who returns to his hometown to defend that aforementioned parent from a murder charge. Cue feelings! Cue indie rock songs! Cue emotions! Yes, this is pretty manipulative, old school stuff. "The Judge" opens on October 10th. »

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.

David Dobkin is directing the movie which marks the first project »

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 »
