Doctor Dolittle is best known for being the only person who can understand animals. Literally. That’s because he can converse with them in a way that no other person on the planet can. While it may not be exactly the kind of film you would expect to see in a climate that is filled with superheroes, it is a family friendly bit that can work with the right people.
And Universal’s Dolittle starring Robert Downey Jr. could be just that kind of film, especially when it’s going to open the new year. The studio has released a new trailer which sees Downey Jr. as the titular character, who sounds an awful like Sherlock Holmes – and acts a little bit like him too – and who goes on an incredible journey where he will encounter animals that only he can talk to. Check out the trailer below.

Gaiman servers as writer and showrunner on the series, which takes a bizarre and delightful poke at religious tropes.
Read here below for a review of Good Omens Episode 1: “In The Beginning.” WARNING: Spoilers ahead!
The delightful chaos wrought by Amazon Studios’ new Good Omens TV series at SXSW cannot be denied or ignored, literally. With such an enormously immersive marketing strategy, you’d expect it was being positioned as the next Game of Thrones or Westworld, both of which saw HBO employ similar tactics in years past. But, you’d be utterly and completely wrong.
Good Omens is something entirely different — and, if successful, could have the potential to usher in a new era of TV.
Amazon Prime Video has released an official trailer for Good Omens, the upcoming series based on the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.
The show follows an odd couple angel and demon (played by Michael Sheen and David Tennant), who have grown fond of their lives on Earth and aren’t at all fans of the coming end of days.
