Robert Downey Jr. is about to welcome his first baby girl.

His wife, Susan Downey, is expecting a girl in November, his reps have confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Avengers star announced the news on Twitter on July 9 with a characteristically casual message:
Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?
Robert confirmed the news on Facebook as well.
Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world,' but I'm certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November.
This will be the couple's second child together, joining two-year-old son Exton Elias Downey. Robert, 49, has a 20-year-old son, Indio, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

Downey currently appears in the culinary comedy Chef and stars in the upcoming courtroom drama The Judge, hitting theaters Oct. 10. He will appear in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now filming.

Iron Man 3 won three stautettes at the 41st Saturn Awards, taking the new category of comic-to-film adaptation, with star Robert Downey Jr. and supporting actor Ben Kingsley also winners.

Downey sent a video acceptance saying that he wants another Saturn to balance the feng shui in his home, so he read off his slate for the next few years, altering each title to make it more Saturn-friendly. He finished the list with “Sherlock Versus Mothra” for 2017.
Thx all who voted for me & IM3 at the Saturn Awards! Couldn't go, but I'm sure my speech was a highlight of the show.

He is busy filming an action film. But Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr. still managed to find some down-time between scenes while on location in London on Monday.

The star was seen putting his feet up - literally - while making Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Wearing a navy blue T-shirt with tracksuit bottoms, sunglasses and a baseball cap, the screen star looked nondescript as he relaxed with his wife, Susan.

Seen sat admiring the view, he could also be spotted riding a bicycle throughout the local greenery. In the back was one of his children, who was fast asleep - despite the excitement of the set.

First Trailer and Poster for 'The Judge'

Posted by Thora | 20/06/2014 | Films, Videos, Gallery | 0 Comment(s)
Warner Bros. has premiered the first trailer and poster for David Dobkin's The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, which is set for a October 10 release.

The film finds Downey playing big city lawyer Hank Palmer whose returned 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. Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Melissa Leo and Billy Bob Thornton co-star.
Howdy folks. I'm still a newbie at this stuff, so kindly bear with... Just wrapped the Avengers: Age of Ultron gig, figured it was the right time to give you an advance look at a trailer for The Judge, coming out in October.

Susan and I are delighted that this wound up being the first movie produced through our Team Downey production company at Warner Bros. It’s a drama with lots of heart and wit.... might be the best thing I've been part of yet...beginner’s luck, perhaps.

An original story from our director, David Dobkin, it’s a modern tale of conflict, judgment, death, regret, irony, family dysfunction, hilarity, and of course, unconditional love. When a miserable hotshot Chicago lawyer returns home to a small town in Indiana for his mother’s funeral, he is forced to deal with a lifetime at odds with his legendarily stoic superior court justice father (aka The Judge).

What could possibly go wrong? Shame and secrets, old flames and...murder perhaps?

Again, thanks for your patronage; I'll keep trying to make things interesting.

Check out the trailer and poster below. The official website is also online.

Is 'The Judge' another Oscar power play?

Posted by Thora | 14/06/2014 | News, Articles | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story

Ever since Robert Downey Jr. revitalized his career, first proving he was for real on "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" and then making good on big-boy movie insurance with "Iron Man," I've been wondering if we'll see him really seize an awards season opportunity. Yes, he was nominated in 2008 for a hilarious turn in "Tropic Thunder," but that was as much a stunt as it was genius. When he really sinks his teeth into something non-genre again, will the Oscar machine be at his beck and call? The Judge could provide an answer in due time.

We're not quite there on predictions and such yet. Cannes just wrapped up and there are still elements trickling out for the upcoming season. I understand the rush to be an early bird prognosticator — we did it ourselves around here for years before it just started to feel like wasted energy. We'll chime in around the year's midway point on that score, but certainly, The Judge is a film on our radar.

Downey stars as a Chicago lawyer who returns to his hometown roots to defend his hostile father in a murder case. Robert Duvall stars as the eponymous judge, a bit of a town tyrant (both in the courtroom and at home), a heavy hand that pushed Downey's character away years ago.
'The Judge' First Look

Posted by Thora | 11/06/2014 | News, Films | 0 Comment(s)

How do you defend someone who never defended you? That’s the heart of this thriller/family drama (out Oct. 10) starring Robert Downey Jr. as a Chicago defense attorney who returns to his small town to represent his hostile father (Robert Duvall) in a murder case.

Duvall plays the imperious title character: a living symbol of justice in their community and a tyrant in his own household — factors that compelled his son to flee years before. A family funeral brings Downey’s character home, but it’s another death that keeps him there.

“Against his own instincts and desire, he ends up staying to defend his dad from what may or may not be an intentional vehicular manslaughter case,” Downey says, flashing his eyebrows on those last few words.

“His father is a pillar of the community. Everybody knows a dad like the judge,” the actor adds. “Every community has one, and every family has either heard of or been under that kind of patriarchy. It’s this very American story. But it’s also a story about family, and reconciliation, and law, and justice.”

Downey’s character doesn’t just clash with his father, but also his brutish older brother, played by Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black) — who stands by the old man’s side in all matters. Less confident, but no less devoted to the pater familias, is the Fredo-esque youngest brother (Jeremy Strong, Zero Dark Thirty). “He, uh … he still lives at home,” Downey explains. “Slow learner.”

The film has flashes of humor, but it’s definitely more of a dramatic turn for director David Dobkin, best known for Wedding Crashers. And it’s the first project from Team Downey, the new production company founded by the actor and his wife, longtime Silver Pictures producer Susan Downey (the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes films, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang).

Team Downey had several films inching forward in development, including a big screen version of Perry Mason, and a drama about the aftermath of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis during World War II. The Judge, with its genre-mixing script by first-time screenwriter Bill Dubuque and Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) was “the greyhound that got its eye on the rabbit first,” as the actor puts it.

In her previous role at Silver Pictures, the dedication was to amped-up action pictures. So what kind of brand does Team Downey hope to establish? “If the type is good, that’s the brand I’d go for,” she says, saying they’re looking for the offbeat and heartfelt — though not the ultra-niche or esoteric.

“Our storytelling is character-driven but on a commercial level,” Susan says. “We wanted to do something outside the big movie tentpole projects.”

So no Iron Man suit — just emotional armor this time.
