Robert Downey Jr. is setting sail with some furry friends in the first trailer for “Dolittle” Universal Pictures’ reimagining of the classic story about a man who could speak to animals.
After charming the Box Office with Marvel Cinematic Universe Film (MCU) ‘Avenger’s: Endgame’ actor Robert Downey Jr is back to impress fans with his upcoming film ‘Dolittle.
A trailer of the film was released on Sunday.
In the trailer, Downey Jr. takes the center stage as he embarks on an adventurous journey to save the young Queen of England. Later, 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, reported Entertainment Weekly magazine.
While fans are used to seeing the ‘Iron Man’ actor surrounded by a number of superheroes in ‘Marvel’ movie posters, ‘Dolittle’s’ poster features Downey Jr. with many furry animals around him.
The recently released poster shows Downey Jr. surrounded by a whole host of furry friends, including a fox, polar bear, parrot, gorilla, ostrich, giraffe, and more. The tagline, reads, “He’s just not a people person,” which rightly sets the tone for the film’s subject.
The film has undergone several shuffles in recent months, with Universal Pictures renaming the flick Dolittle” in place of its original title “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.” The film was also moved from its original April 12, 2019 release date to the longer Martin Luther King holiday weekend.
