Robert Downey Sr. is getting his documentary due.
The late actor and filmmaker's son Robert Downey Jr. profiles his father in the upcoming Netflix film Sr., which explores Downey Sr.'s life and his impact on both Hollywood and the life of his son.
The heartfelt trailer dropped on Monday,
"I just remember that cacophony of creativity, but mostly laughter," Downey Jr., 57, says.
The trailer revealed that even though Downey Sr. had episodes of uncomfortable pain (he died from complications related to Parkinson’s disease), he did his best to keep his laid-back sense of humor most of the time.
The documentary is led by Downey Jr., who decided that the legacy of his family of filmmakers deserved to be documented, celebrated, and shown to the world.
Sr. is directed by five-time Emmy nominee Chris Smith and premieres on December 2 on Netflix.
