Doctor Strange has finally arrived in theaters and it seems like Marvel once again has a massive hit on their hands. The movie is already raking it in at the box office and has been praised for its stunning visuals and inventive CGI. It turns out those visuals, and everything about the movie in this case, may have been a little too convincing, because Jaden Smith thought they were real.
The fact that Jaden Smith said something weird on his Twitter account shouldn't be all that surprising, but he really outdid himself this time. Apparently, Jaden Smith decided to see a Thursday night screening of Doctor Strange and was pretty taken back by it. So much so that he wants to dedicate the rest of his life to the teachings of the mystic arts, which is most definitely not a real thing. Here is what he had to say.
"Just Watched Doctor Strange, Im Completely Blown Away, And I'm Going To Dedicate The Rest Of My Life To Those Practices. Thank You"
For those who maybe haven't seen the movie yet or aren't overly familiar with Doctor Strange, the movie centers on a neurosurgeon named Stephen Strange who renders his hands useless after causing irreparable nerve damage in a tragic car accident. He then spends every dollar of his fortune looking for a cure, which leads him to a place called Kamar-Taj where he learns the ways of sorcery from The Ancient One, a centuries older master of the mystic arts. So in essence, Jaden Smith is going to dedicate his life to becoming a magician. Doctor Strange co-writer C. Robert Cargill took to his Twitter account after seeing Jaden Smith's tweet. He had a pretty great response.
"Guys, I don't think you quite understand the gravity of that tweet. Jaden Smith is going to try to find Kamar Taj!"
Box office tracking has Doctor Strange looking at a very solid opening weekend in the U.S., probably in the $70 million range. Given the massive opening overseas this weekend and the incredibly positive word of mouth so far, it is very possible that the Scott Derrickson directed spectacle (which is apparently very believable for some) will surpass that number. That is good for Marvel Studios, because they have big plans for the character, as he will be heavily featured in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and it is starting to look like Doctor Strange 2 may already be in the cards.
Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelsen. It is in theaters now so you can check it out for yourself and decide if you want to follow Jaden Smith on his quest to learn the mystic arts. Or if you just want to see what is by most accounts a great Marvel movie. You can check out the tweets for yourself below.
