Dr. Dolittle is Back

The man who can talk to animals is back in theaters, this time starring Robert Downey Jr. as the eccentric doctor.

After losing his wife seven years earlier, Dr. John Dolittle, famed veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hides himself away behind the walls of Dolittle Manor, with his menagerie of exotic animals as his only company. But when the young queen falls gravely ill, Dolittle sets sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island (along with a young, self-appointed apprentice and a coterie of animal friends), searching for a cure.

Several big names play CGI animals in the magical world, including Rami Malek, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes, Jim Broadbent and Tom Holland (who plays a dog!).

Dr. Dolittle opens Jan. 17.
