Robert Downey Jr. has had one of the more varied careers in recent memory, and it’s kind of strange to think that at this point in time he’s widely known as a “superhero movie star.” Downey Jr. may be the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he hasn’t wholly forsaken more dramatic roles in lieu of his superstar status, as evidenced by the upcoming drama The Judge. Directed by David Dobkin and produced by Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Downey, the story revolves around 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. In anticipation of the film’s release on October 10th, we’ve got a few The Judge-related items to give away to some of our readers.
