One week from today, fans will be able to see Doctor Strange in Thursday preview screenings all across the country. To get fans ready for this mystical adventure, Marvel has released a new TV spot that shows how Dr. Stephen Strange's (Benedict Cumberbatch) world is turned upside down. We also have a few screen shots from Marvel's social media pages, which shows the studio literally turning some of their websites upside down in honor of this new movie.
Marvel's new TV spot also includes a number of quotes from some of the nation's critics, which offer glowing praise of this Marvel Phase 3 adventure. As of now, Doctor Strange has an impressive 96% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the first full movie reviews surfacing online today. We also recently reported that this movie will most likely be a box office hit as well, with analysts predicting it could make upwards of $75 million in its opening weekend.
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 as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Benedict Wong as Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West, Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. 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, which will most likely be introduced at some point before Avengers: Infinity War, which starts production soon and is set for release on November 17, 2017. Take a look at the latest TV spot and these "upside down" photos from Doctor Strange, as we inch closer and closer to the November 4 release.
