Now that he’s saved the world from evil super-villains and solved mysteries in jolly old England, what will Robert Downey Jr. do next? Save the world from more evil super-villains and solve more mysteries in jolly old England, of course — oh, and he’ll talk to some animals in between. The actor and MCU superstar has signed on to headline The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, in which he’ll play the titular protagonist, previously portrayed on the big screen by Rex Harrison and Eddie Murphy, in a new film from the director of Gold.

Warner Bros. Reportedly Wants One More DC Movie to Film This Year

With the recent creative changes behind the scenes of The Batman, Ben Affleck’s solo film probably won’t begin filming until 2018, which leaves a bit of a gap in Warner Bros.’ superhero schedule. Earlier this week, the studio pushed Aquaman back two months, pitting it against Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie in December 2018 — and with nothing else on the docket for the rest of the year, that leaves a sizable gap on the DC schedule.

Hugh Jackman’s Animated Musical ‘Larrikins‘ Canceled by DreamWorks Animation

Unless you’re a die-hard fan of animated film, Hugh Jackman, or Tim Minchin (or someone whose job requires them to obsessively keep up with movie news, ahem), then the title Larrikins might not mean anything to you. The Australian animated musical has been in development since 2011, but it appears that recent changes at DreamWorks Animation have led to the project’s cancellation, and we may never know the joy of a singing animated bilby (it’s a marsupial) voiced by Hugh Jackman.

Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez to Star in ‘Overboard’ Remake

A gender-swapped remake of a 1987 rom-com starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as a mismatched couple? Sure, why not. It’s not exactly the most inventive idea, nor is Overboard the sort of movie begging for a contemporary remake, but that’s what sort of makes this news unsurprising: Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez will star in a new remake of the classic Garry Marshall film.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton Play Good Cop, Orc Cop in New Images From David Ayer’s ‘Bright’ 

Netflix has been on a real tear lately, releasing trailers and sneak peeks at several of their upcoming Original releases, including Bright — the gritty fantasy cop drama from director David Ayer, in which Will Smith plays an officer paired with an orc (yes, really) played by Joel Edgerton. Following last week’s debut of the first teaser, new image and details have arrived to shed a little more light on this strange movie.

Academy Bars Accountants Involved in Best Picture Mixup From Future Oscars

It took a few days, but the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has finally come to a decision: The two PricewaterhouseCooper accountants involved in this year’s Best Picture snafu, dubbed “Envelopegate,” will not be allowed to work at the Oscars again. In what instantly became the most memorable Oscar moment in recent memory (and perhaps all-time), La La Land was erroneously announced as Best Picture; it took two whole minutes (or more) for the PwC accountants to rectify the error and announce Moonlight as the correct winner.

Michael Shannon’s Karaoke Skills Are a Gift to Us All

In these bleak times, pleasant distractions have become a commodity; we’ll take all the joy we can get from wherever we can get it — like Michael Shannon singing his karaoke go-to song on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Listen, you hardly need additional incentive to watch this clip (it’s Michael Shannon singing karaoke), but you might be interested to know that Shannon’s favorite karaoke jam is about as weird and wonderful as you’d expect.

Academy Reportedly Considers Hiring More Oscar Auditors as Soon as They Stop Analyzing This Guy‘s Tweet

Perhaps even more incredible than Envelopegate is how quickly the whole thing escalated, and our collective fascination with what instantly (and maybe inarguably) became the most memorable Oscar moment of all time. (To be fair, America was in desperate need of a distraction.) Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty’s Best Picture envelope mixup is the best-worst thing to happen to the Oscars in years, but it’s not a mistake they’re eager to repeat; according to a new report, they’re considering a possible solution, which they’ll get around to as soon as they finish exhaustively scrutinizing this tweet.

You Can’t Stop the ‘Trolls’ Sequel From Hitting Theaters in 2020

DreamWorks and Universal’s surprise animated hit is — unsurprisingly — getting a sequel. The news comes on the heels of Justin Timberlake’s charismatic opening number at the 2017 Oscars earlier this week — something most of you probably forgot all about at least two hours before Envelopegate even happened, somewhere between candy parachutes and that weird tour bus interlude.
