Robert Downey Jr. Talks to Animals in 'Dolittle' Trailer - Watch!

The official trailer for Robert Downey Jr.‘s Dolittle is out now!

The 54-year-old actor plays Dr. John Dolittle in the upcoming film.

Here’s the synopsis for the vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: “After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.”

It continues, “The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena) and a headstrong parrot (Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.”

The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, and Jim Broadbent and features additional voice performances from Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Carmen Ejogo, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Craig Robinson. (See more details on which characters they voice.)

The film is directed by Stephen Gaghan and executive produced by Robert Downey Jr..

Dolittle hits theaters on January 17, 2020. Watch the trailer now!

Emilia Clarke & Henry Golding's First Trailer for 'Last Christmas' Movie Is Here!

The first trailer for the upcoming holiday rom-com Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding, has arrived!

The highly anticipated movie was directed by BridesmaidsPaul Feig and written by Oscar-winning writer Emma Thompson, who also stars in the film.

Here is the movie’s synopsis: Kate (Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart … and you gotta have faith.

Last Christmas, which reunites Henry with his Crazy Rich Asians co-star Michelle Yeoh, features the music of George Michael. The film hits theaters on November 8.

Emma Thompson Teases Stephen Colbert Over The Lack Of Female Late-Night Hosts!

Emma Thompson paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (June 4) and talked about receiving her damehood last year from Prince William.

The 60-year-old actress revealed that the ceremony didn’t involve a sword, which she said was “not fair,” and left her husband unhappy.

“If you get a knighthood, your wife or person who lives with you becomes ‘Lady So-and-so’,” Emma told Colbert. “But the husband doesn’t get anything. So I’m Dame Emma, and he’s just plain old Greg Meh-bleh. So he’s not pleased. Plus, I wear the badge in bed and it’s sharp!”

Later in the interview, Emma talked about her character in the new film Late Night: “She’s a woman late-night talk show [host], so it’s basically science fiction,” Emma teased. “Did you see the way I slipped that in, sneaky little political remark there from Dame Thommo?”

Colbert joked in response, “We don’t need politics in late night.”
