The Judge generated the most social media buzz after ten days of the recently-concluded Toronto International Film Festival, in an analysis conducted by media firm Way To Blue.  

It ranks second-highest in the “viewers’ intent-to-view” category, which is topped by the Reese Witherspoon film, Wild.  

From Variety: "With more than 39,000 social media mentions, Downey Jr. was declared the “Festival Hero.”

In a previous analysis from the first five days of the fest, Bill Murray took the crown with an initial 29,000-plus mentions.

“The Judge,” starring Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, was an early winner last week and maintained that title, generating a total overall buzz score of 32,467, more than 10,000 more mentions than the second place film.”

"It’s a girl," he said.
