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 Strong, Billy Bob Thornton, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Ken Howard, David Krumholtz, Balthazar Getty, and Denis O’Hare. The Judge opens in theaters on October 10th.
