Watch: New Trailer For The 'The Judge' With Robert Downey Jr. Steps Into The Great Cathedral Of Justice He won't have his buddies in The Avengers by his side, or CGI spectacle to carry him, so for the upcoming dramedy "The Judge," Robert Downey Jr. will have to rely on his quick wit, and the kind of acting chops we don't see from the actor when he's out saving the world.

‘The Judge’ Review: Like a Lifetime Movie, But For Hardcore Robert Downey, Jr. Fans Warner Bros.

Toronto Renders a Verdict on Robert Downey Jr.'s ‘The Judge’

thewrap.com – Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall took the spotlight at Thursday's opening night gala at the Toronto International Film Festival, with their performances in “The Judge” drawing a sustained ovation from the crowd at the huge Roy Thomson Hall. At the same time, reaction was more muted for the film itself, a change-of-pace drama from the director of “Wedding Crashers” but probably not a movie likely to (or, for that matter, designed to) draw much awards buzz this Oscar season.
