Someday, Robert Downey, Jr. is going to win an Oscar but will it be for his performance in The Judge? This upcoming film has been mentioned on some sites as being an Oscar contender but, based on the newly released trailer, I have my doubts. Don’t get me wrong — it looks like it’s going to be a good film and Robert Downey, Jr. looks like he’s been perfectly cast. But, at the same time, the trailer makes the film look just a bit predictable. Hopefully, the film’s plot — Robert Downey. Jr. is a slick lawyer who defends his estranged father (Robert Duvall) after the latter is accused of murdering his wife — will provide a few unexpected twists that aren’t obvious from the trailer.
That said, this is a film that I will definitely see when it’s released in theaters. How can you not see a film that features both Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall?
