Warner Bros. has released a batch of eight The Judge clips from director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming drama.  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.  The film marks a major departure for Dobkin, who has previously helmed comedies like Fred Claus and The Change-Up, and it’s also a big debut of sorts for Downey Jr.—The Judge is the first film released under his production banner Team Downey, which he runs with his wife and producing partner Susan Downey.  These clips offer a good snapshot of the film’s tone, which is certainly dramatic but also tinged with Downey’s signature quick-witted sense of humor.

Watch the Judge clips after the jump.  The film also stars Vera FarmigaBilly Bob Thornton, Vincent D’OnofrioJeremy StrongDax ShepardLeighton MeesterKen HowardDavid KrumholtzBalthazar Getty, and Denis O’Hare.  The Judge opens in theaters on October 10th.

 

Here’s the official synopsis for The Judge:

In “The Judge,” Downey stars as big city lawyer Hank Palmer, who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town’s judge (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.
