It’s not surprising that the BBC made a little-known (at least to North American audiences) Stephen Hawking biopic back in 2004. This transforms into slightly interesting trivia when you realize that ‘Hawking’ stars a pre-fame Benedict Cumberbatch as the renowned theoretical physicist. However, it edges into wacky “Holy s--t!” territory when you realize that the Discovery Channel is going to re-air the film this Sunday. The same day as the Golden Globes. Where Eddie Redmayne is nominated for playing Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything.’ And where his chief rival is Cumberbatch, nominated for playing another British genius in ‘The Imitation Game.’

It may still be a few years before we see Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme on the big screen, but following the studio’s official confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting in ‘Doctor Strange,’ we’re going to start hearing more updates and rumors about the film. Take the latest rumor, for instance, which has Marvel eyeing Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy, and Ken Watanabe—not for three different roles, but all for the same supporting role in the film. Very intriguing.

The latest might be the most impressive yet however, as Colbert interviews none other than the dragon Smaug himself, live on the set!

It’s no secret that Joss Whedon and Marvel have scheduled reshoots for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in January, as the studio typically schedules time for reshoots a few months after the principal photography is complete. And these reshoots usually involve filming the post-credits sequences, which tease future Marvel films. While it’s been previously rumored that we might see a Captain Marvel cameo in the ‘Age of Ultron’ post-credits scene, a new rumor suggests we might see a different hero: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.

‘The Imitation Game’ Is a Movie About a Unique Genius, That is Anything But Unique

World War II involved more than two dozen countries spread across six continents and tens of millions of soldiers. But according to ‘The Imitation Game’ the entire conflict hinged on the actions of half a dozen crossword puzzle enthusiasts in a couple of huts in the South of England. It was there that a team of cryptographers created a revolutionary machine that could decode Nazi messages and turned the tide of the war for the Allies. Their leader was Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), a mathematician who was rude, disrespectful, and socially awkward in the extreme—and also one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. ‘The Imitation Game’ considers his life: His great achievements, his most-closely hidden secrets, and the ways in which the latter may have helped inspire the former.

Matthew Goode on ‘The Imitation Game’ and Benedict Cumberbatch No Longer Complaining About His Career

Matthew Goode has a way of being the best thing in a lot of movies, even without a lot of starring roles. In ‘The Imitation Game,’ he is surrounded by talented actors (and actors getting Oscar buzz), yet, still, Goode is a standout as the rival and sometimes friend of Alan Turing —the man who helped break the Nazi code and was then punished by his own government for being gay, which eventually led to Turing’s suicide. Ahead, in an extended interview (we had enough time that even ‘Chasing Liberty’ was brought up for reasons I can’t 100 percent defend), Goode discusses his what-should-be-awards-buzzing performance and why he can’t be in as many movies as we’d maybe like him to be.
