Dolittle Gets Some Animal Auditions

Universal Pictures has premiered a new video teaser for “Dolittle”, the latest incarnation of the “Doctor Dolittle” story which has been helmed and co-written by “Syriana” filmmaker Stephen Gaghan.

In his first non-Marvel role in five years, Robert Downey Jr. stars as a physician and veterinarian living in Victorian-era England who suddenly discovers he can talk to animals. He sets out in search of a cure to help an ailing young Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) whilst trying to keep his ability under wraps.

Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson co-star while Tom Holland, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, Kumail Nanjiani, Marion Cotillard and many more lend their voices to the animals who are seen ‘auditioning’ for the film in this new clip.

“Dolittle” opens in cinemas on January 17th 2020.
