Dolittle - Official Trailer

  • Published on Oct 13, 2019
  • He's just not a people person. Watch the trailer for #DolittleMovie, in theaters January 17.
    Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature’s most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle.

    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, Wild Rose) 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.

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

    The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen (The Queen) and Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent and features additional voice performances from Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Carmen Ejogo, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Craig Robinson.

    Directed by Academy Award® winner Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Traffic), Dolittle is produced by Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum under their Roth/Kirschenbaum Films (Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent) and Susan Downey (Sherlock Holmes franchise, The Judge) for Team Downey. The film is executive produced by Robert Downey Jr., Sarah Bradshaw (The Mummy, Maleficent) and Zachary Roth (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil).

    Oh man this looks predictably horrible. Grotesquely over saturated visual look, cartoonish cgi animals, Robert Downey Jr doing his obnoxious, grumbly Sherlock Holmes English accent. That's a big, hard no from me.

      Why would he be in it? Eddie Murphy's version didn't reference any of the other dolittle movies or cartoons so why should this one reference his?

    another white wash... RDJ in all honer but seriously? The most known doctor dolittle is Eddie Murphy. And sure this movie has a different mood than the comedy OG. But WHY? WHY UNIVERSAL!?
    Doctor Dolittle to me will always be Eddie Murphy.

    • SgCy

      Dr Dolittle was originally white. He was white in the books back in the 1920s, he was white in the first live action movie in the 60s and he was white in the cartoon from the 70s. Not only is Eddie Murphy NOT the original, his version BUTCHERED the source material.

      @the randomboxguy They didn't give any nods to the original Dolittle when they made the Eddie Murphy version. Absolutely no reason to reference that terrible movie.

    • the randomboxguy
      the randomboxguy 3 days ago

      @SgCy because he was the main role in the film"dr dolittle" before this. Granted the film took a more comidic approach to the plot of dolittle, but still a nod to this film would be an idea. Just a thought.

    Since Robert Downey Jr. has a pretty great singing voice, do you think he will give a singing version of Talk to the Animals sort of like Bobby Darin's singing version? If Downey Jr. can do a singing version for the credits, it would be awesome. It would be nice to hear Iron Man sing that song.

      This is based on the original books from the 1920's. Eddie Murphy was not the original, in fact that version was a tragic butchering of the source material.
