DI­REC­TOR Scott Der­rick­son STARS Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch, Rachel McA­dams, Chi­we­tel Ejio­for, Mads Mikkelsen RE­LEASED 28 Oc­to­ber 2016

IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE It’s a whole new su­per­nat­u­ral seam for the Marvel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse as Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch as­sumes the cloak of Stephen Strange, head­strong neu­ro­sur­geon turned hex- cast­ing mas­ter of the mys­tic arts. Far- flung film­ing lo­ca­tions in­clude Nepal and Hong Kong but the plot will hurl us even fur­ther out, into the hith­erto un­seen oc­cult realms of Marvel’s back pages. Freak­i­ness ahoy! From his sor­cer­ous goa­tee to his sil­vered tem­ples, Cum­ber­batch looks like pure comic art, sum­moned to life by some for­bid­den spell… SE­CRET ORI­GINS Back To The Fu­ture’s Bob Gale wrote a screen­play for Doc­tor Strange way back in 1986, so long ago that the An­cient One had zits.

SU­PER POWER We’re al­ready sali­vat­ing at the thought of a big- screen take on Steve Ditko’s mind­bend­ing dream­scapes from the comic books. IMAX psychedelia, baby!

He has the power.
