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.
An official trailer has been released for Onward, the latest feature from Pixar Animation Studios.
The movie comes from the team behind Monsters University, writer and director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae, and stars Chris Pratt and Tom Holland as two elf brothers who set off on an adventure in hopes of finding out if magic still exists in the world.

I was initially skeptical about how Disney-Pixar’s Onward could work. The film centered on two brothers who go on a journey to find out if magic still exists. However, when director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae shared another look at the film today at the D23 Expo, it really gave me hope that it was going to be much more than that. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.
Onward is best described as a fantasy adventure set in suburbia. And based on the two images that were released earlier this week, that would seem to be the case. Now Disney”¢Pixar has unveiled their first trailer for the upcoming animated film starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as two elves who embark on a quest to see if there is still magic left in the world. Check out the full trailer here below.

Ma can be seen as a cautionary tale about horrible teens doing horrible things because they are horrible people whose actions will have dire repercussions. The reality of this is that when a bully’s actions go unpunished, it is only a matter of time before the sins of the past come back to haunt the person. It’s a pretty sound premise for a horror film.
The only problem is, Ma lacks structure, balance, and cannot figure out what exactly it wants to be because it feels like there are two separate films going on at once. Director Tate Taylor’s latest effort brings out the best in Octavia Spencer, who plays the titular character, but she’s surrounded by characters who lack depth. My full review below.
