Watch The Second Trailer For ‘The Judge’ Starring Robert Downey Jr.
  |  @   |  

Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. teased on Twitter the release of something new for today, which many (including myself) hoped would be first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, especially since the actor posted a photo of himself wearing the Black Sabbath shirt his character, Tony Stark, had on in The Avengers.

But alas today is not the day for the Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer (but you can read my footage description of it from SDCC here). Instead, Downey has posted the second trailer for his upcoming drama, The Judge, where he stars as a lawyer who goes home for his mother’s funeral and faces his judge father (Robert Duvall), from whom he’s been estranged.

Watch the new trailer here below.

This second trailer takes a different tone than the first one, which was released in June (embedded here below). The first trailer paint’s Downey’s character, Hank Palmer, as a hot shot prick of a lawyer who seemingly defends clients who are guilty, yet he doesn’t seem to care about that. But after Hank’s mother passes away, he returns home to his small hometown to his estranged father, Judge Joseph Palmer, who ends up on trial for murder. It’s clear that Hank and Joseph do not get along and that Hank doesn’t want to be home; his reaction to his father’s situation is one of anger and withdrawal. But, in this new trailer, you get a better sense of this father and son dynamic and what it can morph into as Hank reluctantly stays on to help his father’s case.

The Judge, which stars Robert Downey, Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dax Shepard, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Lancaster, and Billy Bob Thornton, will be released on the U.S. on October 10, 2014 (October 17 in the UK).

The film made its debut on September 4, 2014 at opening night of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, after which, according to Variety, it generated a lot of buzz on social media and Downey Jr. was declared the “Festival Hero.”
