As promised last week, the first trailer for Doctor Strange has arrived to tease a more mystical, psychedelic corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following its debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the trailer is now online and offers our first real look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular Sorcerer Supreme in action — along with the debut of Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One.
We’ve already gotten an official look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme, but some new photos from the set of Doctor Strange give us another look at the actor and his co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor (along with a few mysterious cohorts). The stars of Marvel’s mystical superhero film spring into action — quite literally — in the latest images from the set, taking the action from London to the streets of New York.
There are several big mysteries in the neo-noir thriller Triple 9 but none bigger than this one: How the hell did they get a cast this great to show up for a movie this mediocre?
Following this week’s reveal of the first official images of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme and Kevin Feige’s hints about the next Infinity Stone comes new intel on the other characters in Doctor Strange — namely, Tilda Swinton’s take on the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo, who may or may not be a villain? It’s a bit more complicated than that.
Production has officially begun on Marvel’s Doctor Strange, with director Scott Derrickson at the helm and Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in what promises to be a truly unique and, well, strange offering from the MCU. Marvel has formally announced the start of production and confirmed the central cast, including former Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen, who had previously been in talks for a role.
I don’t think I’ve ever not recognized Kate Winslet in a movie before. But I did not recognize her in the latest trailer for Triple 9. It wasn’t until her name flashed onscreen that I even realized it was her — and even then I had to rewind to see for myself. According to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, she plays “a Russian-Israeli Mafia moll.” My favorite kind of Mafia moll!
This week we got our first unofficial look at Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Sporting a rugged beard, Cumberbatch certainly looks the part of the Sorcerer Supreme, and it’s given us a tiny idea of director Scott Derrickson’s aesthetic for the film. But what of Cumberbatch’s co-stars? Glad you asked! Today brings our first look at Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, all robed up and looking sort of like a mystical Jedi.
“He can change his name. He can dump his car. I will still find him.” Julia Roberts is not even close to messing around in the new trailer for Secret in Their Eyes, Billy Ray’s remake of Juan Jose Campanella’s gripping Spanish film that won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009. Secret in Their Eyes looks similar in tone to Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners, featuring plenty of gut-wrenching drama and a revenge-minded, grieving parent.
John Hillcoat is the director behind The Road and Lawless, which makes Triple 9 an instant must-see. Originally conceived as a starring vehicle for Lawless star Shia LaBeouf, Triple 9 was put on the back burner for a few years before Hillcoat got back to work on it, replacing LaBeouf with Casey Affleck for this nasty little crime thriller. The first trailer has arrived, and as the red band warning promises, things get very, very brutal.
The Martian is probably the most fun you will ever have watching a bunch of nerds solve math problems.
