Nobody saw these flicks coming. From an MCU darling trading his Avenger buds in for some furry friends to a 21st century take on a buzz-worthy horror classic, these are just some of the most surprising, unexpected, and straight-up bizarre movies hitting theatres in 2020.
Dr. Dolittle is a character with a weird history. The physician who could talk with animals was created by author Hugh Lofting in letters written home to his children from the trenches of World War I. The character would go on to become the star of a series of popular children's books, set in Victorian England and published from the 1920s through the '50s.
A number of adaptations appeared over the following decades, including cartoons, radio plays, stage productions, and a lavish 1967 movie musical starring Rex Harrison.
When modern audiences see the name "Dolittle," however, they probably think back to the 1998 movie starring Eddie Murphy, which became something of a franchise all its own, spawning such intriguingly titled direct-to-DVD sequels as Tail to the Chief. Now, the good doctor is returning to the big screen in the form of… wait for it… Robert Downey Jr. The animal cast will be voiced by a star-studded lineup that includes Rami Malek, John Cena, Emma Thompson, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Selena Gomez, and Ralph Fiennes.
We know exactly what you thinking: Where the in the world did this one come from? We don't exactly have an answer for ya - but after over a decade rocking that Iron-Man suit, maybe RDJ
just needed to lighten things up a little bit.
