Warner Bros. just released Robert Downey Jr.‘s brand new trailer of ‘The Judge‘. It is in my opinion a film full of Oscar potential. Filled with an Academy Award cast, a magnificent soundtrack, an enthralling premise and an October release, WB seems to be positioning it for an Oscar run.
Of course, I’ve been fooled before by trailers, so I’m not getting my hopes all up, but I am filled with excitement. Check out the new trailer above and tell us what you think!
Synopsis: Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr.) returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town’s judge (Robert Duvall), is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.
Director: David Dobkin
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton, Vera Farmiga, Leighton Meester, Balthazar Getty, Dax Shepard, Melissa Leo
