, The Judge
Hi everyone. Welcome back! My name is Adele and I am the new owner of Robert Downey Jr. Fan. Kristina was kind enough to hand the site over to me but she will still be sticking around to help when she can. I will spend the next week getting the site and gallery updated with missing pictures and maybe set up a new layout for a fresh change.
The first trailer for Robert’s upcoming movie “The Judge” has arrived some time ago which you can check out below. Robert stars opposite Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga and Billy Bob Thornton and the movie is due for an October 10 release.
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.
Robert Downey Jr and Jared Leto reunited earlier this week at the 17th Annual Hollywood Awards held on October 21st. The two were co-stars in the 1999 film Black and White; but at the Monday evening event, RDJ was honoring Leto with a Breakout Performance award for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
The affair was star-studded, with Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey, Geoffrey Rush, Forest Whitaker, Octavia Spencer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn, Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner, and Zodiac co-star Jake Gyllenhaal also in attendance.
Watch a video of Robert’s award presentation below (along with Leto’s acceptance speech).
Last night, April 30th, Robert Downey Jr appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” I’m unable to embed the video, so just click on the still image above to be led to the full episode; Robert appears around the 14:15 mark. In it, he talks about the “insane phenomenon” that is the Iron Man franchise… and he teases that he “doesn’t know” what his future holds when it comes to move Marvel films (wink, wink). Jon Stewart’s always a fun – and smart – interviewer, so definitely check it out.
On Friday, April 26th, Robert Downey Jr appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” In the interview, he talks a bit about his birthday (and there’s a clip of him doing Gangnam Style in South Korea), his Oscar potential, breaking his ankle on the Iron Man 3 set, and he names his guilty pleasure snack. You can check out some pictures from the show in the gallery, or check out the entire episode below (he shows up around 16:50).
As promised, Marvel released a brand new trailer for Iron Man 3 today. The lengthy look at the upcoming film is full of action, drama, and excitement — that music build-up alone was enough to get me pumped. I don’t want to give too much away by talking about it, so just click play above and enjoy!
Iron Man 3 hits U.S. theaters on May 3rd; check international release dates here.
A new teaser trailer for the upcoming Iron Man 3 was released during yesterday’s Super Bowl game. The short promo showed Robert Downey Jr as a heroic Iron Man, rescuing people after being ejected from a plane. At the end, audiences were encouraged to go online to see an “extended” version, which you can see by clicking SHOW. I won’t spoil that treat for you, but be sure to check it out to see a fun clip featuring Tony Stark.
Here’s a short behind the scenes look on the recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer. Although Robert Downey Jr doesn’t make any comments to the camera in the video, he is featured several times throughout (and even labeled as “arguably the biggest movie star in the world”). It’s also just a pretty fun look at what went on during filming, so expect lots of… “surprises.”
