'The Judge' Premiere at TIFF

Robert Downey Jr. and his pregnant wife, Susan, rocked the red carpet together last night at the Toronto premiere of the 49-year-old actor's upcoming flick The Judge, where the good-looking couple stunned as they posed for pics side by side.

The loved-up duo, who were both beaming from ear to ear, coordinated their outfits and sported monochromatic ensembles, with Downey looking dapper in a black-and-white suit while his expectant ladylove stunned in a fitted black dress that showed off her growing baby bump along with a jeweled collar and matching bedazzled sleeves. The 40-year-old beauty, who is expecting her second child with her hubby of nearly nine years, cradled her growing belly and flashed her diamond wedding ring, appearing elated to be in the company of her handsome hubby.

Robert Downey Jr. is a man who has seen the shadow of death and lived. Not just to talk about it, but to do something creative with the experience. So, with the debut of The Judge as the opening night Gala at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 4, with the debut of his first daughter coming in November, with a skein of other amazing things happening for him from the continuing adventures of Iron Man to on-going work for a new Sherlock Holmes sequel, these are the best of times.

“It really has been this mind-blowing excursion,” Downey offers in a wide-ranging, 55-minute interview with Sun Media. “It’s wild!” With his film-literate wife Susan (Levin) Downey by his side in a limo on the Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles, Downey is on the telephone to Toronto. This is a city and a film festival that figures strongly into his story of renewal, after making it difficult for himself to maintain his career through years of self-destructive alcohol and drug addiction.

Sober and clean since 2003 and married to Levin since 2005, Downey attended TIFF in 2005 with filmmaker Shane Black and another Hollywood 'bad boy' Val Kilmer. “We were back there with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which was my calling card to Jon Favreau for Iron Man. And it wound up being the movie that Marvel thought qualified Shane Black to direct Iron Man 3. So there is this whole little thing that started back in Toronto years ago. We were just sitting on the street and maybe a person or two would walk up and say, 'Hi.' Nobody recognized the movie and we left. But Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, it means a lot!”

RDJ returns to TIFF as its leading man

The actor finds personal parallels in the festival’s opening gala The Judge, about an unlikeable lawyer who becomes a stand-up guy.

Robert Downey Jr. chuckles slyly when he’s reminded how quotably cynical his legal weasel character Hank Palmer is in The Judge, the Sept. 4 gala opener for the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Everybody wants Atticus Finch,” goes one Palmer zinger, “until there’s a dead hooker in the hot tub.”

“Ha, ha!” Downey laughs down the wire from Los Angeles.

“I think we’re going to mass-print a bumper sticker with that quote on it, so you’re on the money.”

This certainly fits the image most people have of Downey, 49. He’s known for his rapier tongue both on and off the screen, whether he’s playing a superhero smartass in Iron Man and The Avengers, summoning cerebral quips as a reinvented Sherlock Holmes or trading barbs with other Hollywood A-listers at the Oscars or Golden Globes.

Yet Downey’s ambition for The Judge, a TIFF world premiere produced by his wife Susan Downey and directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), goes in a different direction. He wants to show how even the most unlikeable of guys can become a stand-up guy, if the will is there and the stars align.

“My highest hope for The Judge,” he says, “is that it would represent Hank’s salvation in the unlikeliest of circumstances.”
Pre-TIFF Interview with Robert Downey Jr.

Guardians of the Galaxy deserves to be ranked number one among the 10 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Robert Downey Jr.

Cue the gasps. Be astounded. I certainly was when Downey proclaimed his love for the mega-hit in an interview triggered by the coming world premiere of The Judge at the Toronto International Film Festival. “Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” Downey says with admiration. “And it’s odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”

Downey, of course, is the star of three of those Marvel blockbusters, the Iron Man trilogy. He plays the Tony Stark/Iron Man characters with a kind of wit, exuberance and edge that elevates those movies above popcorn fare. Yet Downey still points to Galaxy as the winner. Because it was so unlikely. Because it could never have been made without its predecessors dominating the box office.

“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’ ”

Downey offers a metaphor invoking football and the NFL and the Mannings. “It’s like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.’ And then he goes and wins the Superbowl!”
New Poster For 'The Judge'

Robert Downey Jr. just tweeted a first look at a new poster for his next movie, The Judge, in which he plays “a successful lawyer [who] returns to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town's judge, 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 Duvall plays his father, the titular judge, as you can see from the poster.

The Judge also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Vera Farmiga, and Vincent D’Onofrio, and you can catch it in U.S. theaters on October 10.
RDJ Pays Tribute to Richard Attenborough

Posted by Thora | 27/08/2014 | News, Articles | 0 Comment(s)
Robert Downey Jr. was already a Hollywood veteran by the time he played Charlie Chaplin in 1992, but at the same time it could still be considered a breakthrough role for the quirky thesp.

And for that, the Iron Man star will always be thankful to Sir Richard Attenborough, the actor and filmmaker who directed Downey's Oscar-nominated in the biopic Chaplin about the silent-film legend. Attenborough, who won two Oscars for directing and producing Gandhi, died yesterday at 90.

"I'm so grateful I was able to visit Lord Attenborough  recently, to deeply thank him for his contributions to cinema, his lasting impact on all who knew him, and his legacy of philanthropy, wit and kindness," Downey said in a statement released Monday to E! News.

Attenborough was indeed a talent for the ages. His memorable roles later in life, usually sporting a snowy white beard, included prominent parts in Jurassic Park and Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet, and he played Kris Kringle in the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street.
