Robert Downey Jr. changes his “Iron Man” director’s life in the first trailer for Jon Favreau‘s comedy “Chef.”

Downey Jr., last seen on the big screen alongside Favreau in “Iron Man 3,” helps the struggling foodie move on after he loses his job, and encourages him to open up a food truck where he can serve the food he loves, instead of a menu he hates.
