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!

Robert Downey Jr. Responds to Martin Scorsese's Criticism of Marvel Movies as 'Not Cinema'

Robert Downey, Jr. is responding to director Martin Scorsese‘s criticism of the Marvel films as “not cinema.”

If you don’t know, Martin said the following quote in an interview: “I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Robert, who starred as Iron Man in the Marvel Universe, did not seem that upset by the comments and tried to remain magnanimous.

“I appreciate his opinion…we need all the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on,” Robert said.

Howard then asked Robert if he was insulted.

“I mean look, it’d be like saying Howard Stern isn’t radio. It makes no sense to say it,” Robert added.
