Dolittle, the Stephen Gaghan directed fantasy / comedy about a physician (Robert Downey Jr.) who discovers he can to talk to animals has a brand new trailer.

Additional key cast includes Kumail Nanjiani, Tom Holland, Antonio Banderas…

Perhaps it’s the music. Maybe it’s Downey Jr. Wait! it’s got to be the animals, right?

What am I saying? Clearly it’s all three things that made me strangely emotional as I watched this trailer. Looking forward to being moved and seeing how different things might be if we really could talk with animals.

Also, I’m definitely really looking forward to Nanjiani as the ostrich.

Emma Thompson, Marion Cotillard, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Sheen, Jessie Buckley, Selena Gomez, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, and John Cena also star.

Dolittle Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US); February 7th, 2020 (UK)…

Troop Zero, a new comedy / drama about a misfit girl named Christmas who has dreams of life in outer space stars Mckenna Grace, Allison Janney, Viola Davis and Jim Gaffigan.

Directed by  Bert & Bertie Troop Zero is set in rural 1977 Georgia where a competition offers Christmas the chance to be recorded on NASA’s Golden Record; and so so begins the recruitment of Troop Zeroa makeshift group of Birdie Scouts…

It’s Janney, Davis and there’s humour, so I’m definitely interested. I’m perhaps even more intrigued since this looks like a far less emotionally taxing role for Davis than her usual. I wonder if she’ll cry at all. Maybe just a single tear.

Edi Patterson, Mike Epps, Charlie Shotwell, Ashley Brooke, Maureen Brennan, Rebecca Chulew, Johanna Colón, Milan Ray, Elton LeBlanc, Kenneth Wayne Bradley and Eric Bell Jr. also star.

Troop Zero Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US & UK)….

Mulan, the live-action Disney story about a young Chinese maiden who disguises herself as a male warrior in order to save her father has a new trailer.

Yifei Liu, Jet Li and Donnie Yen star while Niki Caro directs…

I’m surprised to find that I like the previous trailer better than this version. Something about it doesn’t have me quite as excited. Nevertheless, I’m still ready for the courageous, underestimated female warrior story.

Will Mulan cut off her beautiful dark locks as she does in the animated version of the movie? After seeing this trailer, I’m still not certain.

Rosalind Chao, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Li Gong, Jason Scott Lee, Tzi Ma, Ron Yuan and Yoson An also star.

Mulan Release Dates: March 27th, 2020 (US & UK)…

Harrison Ford, Karen Gillan Bradley Whitford and Dan Stevens are the stars of Call Of The Wild; a new adventure movie about a sled dog’s struggle for survival in the Alaskan wild.

Directed by Chris Sanders, Call Of The wild is based on Jack London’s best selling novel of the same name…

I’m in because this one’s based on a bestselling book and Ford deemed the story / script good enough to ‘come out of retirement.’

Also, this trailer features some beautifully shot moving moments. I wonder how many times the finished film is going to make me cry.

Jean Louisa Kelly, Cara Gee, Wes Brown, Omar Sy, Colin Woodell, Terry Notary, Preston Bailey, Gary Sievers, Scott MacDonald, Michael Horse and Adam Fergus also star.

Call Of The Wild Release Dates: February 14th, 2020 (UK); February 21st, 2020 (US)…

Soul is the latest animated adventure from Disney Pixar starring Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey and John Ratzenberger.

From directors  Pete Docter and Kemp Powers, Foxx plays Joe Gardner, a musician who has lost his passion for music. Joe is transported out of his body and must find his way back, with the help of an infant soul learning about herself…

Before reading the synopsis, I watched the trailer and by the end all that came out of my mouth was ‘Huh?

Now, after paying closer attention to the clues, Joe is very likely in between life and death. It looks like this will be another clever and especially moving Pixar movie and I’m definitely OK with that.

Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Ahmir-Khalib Thompson also star

Soul Release Dates: June 19th, 2020 (US & UK)…

A Reindeer’s Journey (2018)

A real tale set in the heart of the grandiose landscapes of Lapland, A Reindeer’s Journey (Une odyssée en Laponie), is an adventure / family movie / documentary all about the survival of a small wild reindeer named Aïlo.

Narrated by Donald Sutherland, director Guillaume Maidatchevsky’s film focuses on the challenges faced by the young, frail and vulnerable Aïlo throughout his first year in Lapland…

At birth, a reindeer only has five minutes to stand up, five more to learn how to walk and five more to learn how to run and swim.’

The above quote has me wanting to see the footage of Aïlo doing all the above. And it helps that he’s cute.

Additional key cast includes Aldebert, Prinssi…

A Reindeer’s Journey Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (US)…

New Fantasy / comedy Dolittle stars Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, Michael Sheen and Marion Cotillard in a retelling of the Doctor little story.

A Stephen Gaghan directed tale about a physician who discovers that he can talk to animals and based on a character created by Hugh Lofting…

The animals and Downey Jr’s talents are why I’m interested – and naturally, I’ll of course be comparing this to the 1998 version starring Eddie Murphy.

Antonio Banderas, Kumail Nanjiani, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes, Jessie Buckley, Selena Gomez, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, and John Cena also star.

Dolittle Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US); February 7th, 2020 (UK)…

Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons and Jack Whitehall are the stars of Jungle cruise, a new fantasy / adventure based on Disneyland’s theme park ride.

A ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travellers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals, reptiles, and with a supernatural element…

Looks like quite a fun cross between, Tarzan, and Jumanji. Also, just yesterday I was thinking, ‘I haven’t seen Emily Blunt in a while…’ And now, here she is.

Paul Giamatti, Edgar Ramírez, Veronica Falcón, Andy Nyman, Raphael Alejandro, Mark Ashworth and Quim Gutiérrez also star.

Jungle Cruise Release Dates: July 24th, 2020 (US & UK)…
