With just a few weeks left until Marvel's Doctor Strange hits theaters, anticipation is higher than ever for this Marvel Phase 3 adventure. Marvel is hosting the world premiere screening of Doctor Strange tonight in Hollywood, but even if you can't make it to the red carpet, we have the next best thing. Marvel will be live-streaming all of the red carpet festivities, which you can watch from the comfort of your own home in the video player below.
The festivities will stream live on Marvel Entertainment's YouTube, starting at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST. The movie has already screened for critics, and the early reactions that have already come in are quite positive. Box office analysts have predicted that Doctor Strange will pull in an estimated $75 million during its opening weekend on November 4, where it will go up against DreamWorks Animation's Trolls and Lionsgate's Hacksaw Ridge. If the full reviews are just as positive as the early reactions, it could lead to an even bigger debut at the box office, but it's too soon to tell right now.
From Marvel Studios comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place-a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality.
Before long Strange-armed with newly acquired magical powers-is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. The supporting cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins, with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Scott Derrickson is directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Jon Spaihts and Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay.
Doctor Strange is the second movie in Marvel's Phase Three line-up, which has been rumored to introduce a new Infinity Stone, the Eye of Agamotto, which is believed to be the Infinity Stone known as the Time Stone. If this is true, there is just one more Infinity Stone left to be revealed, the Soul Stone, but we don't know when that will come into play. While we wait for more details on Doctor Strange and Marvel's Phase 3 lineup, take a look at the live stream from the Doctor Strange world premiere red carpet festivities.
