Benedict Cumberbatch wants director Scott Derrickson to return for Doctor Strange 2

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel may be a little too busy to start thinking about Doctor Strange 2 just yet, but we’ll be seeing plenty of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange in Phase Three, with the Sorcerer Supreme set to appear in November’s Thor: Ragnarok, along with next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Nevertheless, given the box office success of the first movie, it’s inevitable that we will get a second sequel, and speaking to Cinema Blend, Cumberbatch has revealed that he hopes to see Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson back at the helm.

“Scott’s got, he’s very good on process, and he’s very good on visuals and he had to cram a lot in,” said Cumberbatch. “I mean this was a much harder shoot in many ways than I imagine some of the other origin stories had been. They’re all hard, not to detract from the »

‘Eliminators’ DVD Review

21 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Scott AdkinsLily Ann Stubbs, Wade Barrett, James Cosmo, Daniel Caltagirone, Stephen Marcus, Nick Nevern, Ty Glaser, Sean Cronin, Mark Wingett, Mem Ferda | Written by Nathan Brookes, Bobby Lee Darby | Directed by James Nunn

If there’s ever a phrase that will have me instantly reaching for my wallet it’s “a Scott Adkins film…” Honestly, nine times out of ten I will buy an Adkins film without so much as seeing a trailer. Why? Well because for me, Adkins is keeping the Dtv dream alive, picking up the action hard-man mantle from 90s pioneers like Jeff Speakman, Olivier Gruner, Gary Daniels and in particular Jeff Wincott, one of the only other true action heroes to have the same perfect blend of fighting skills, charisma and acting chops as Adkins.

Eliminators sees Adkins re-team with his Green Street 3 director James Nunn (who also co-directed the fab British thriller Tower Block »

Doctor Strange Gag Reel Gets Funny with the Sorcerer Supreme

11 February 2017 1:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange had more humor than expected when it arrived in theaters this past November. And as evidenced in the just released bloopers and gag reel, the actors where having quite a bit of fun on set. In this video, which will be included with the upcoming Blu-ray, we get to see Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton having a go at each other as they attempt to get through some of their scenes together.

The video shows Benedict Cumberbatch struggling with some of his Sorcerer moves, and he often times just breaks into dance. We also get to see him struggling with some of the dialogue that is quite the mystical mouthful. Tilda Swinton also appears to have an issue with some of the lines in this movie about magic and mysticism. The bloopers and gag reel arrives with another special feature from the Blu-ray. It's a behind-the-scenes featurette called 'The Astral Form'. »

Wu Jing Has A Message For Frank Grillo In First Wolf Warrior 2 Trailer

25 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

I think it's fair to say that 2015 action effort Wolf Warrior was an unexpected hit. The Wu Jing / Scott Adkins team up was - and I seriously say this with immense affection - dumb as a bag of hammers and neither Wu nor Adkins were really what could be considered bankable stars in the Chinese market that was its principal target. It featured Wu fighting off a pack of hysterically CGI wolves with his bare hands. It was, however, dumb in exactly the right way, playing straight into populist wish fulfillment for Chinese audiences in a manner that lines up pretty well with how American action films of the 90s approached the audience over here and it went on to be a Massive...

Early Doctor Strange concept art shows an alternate look for the Marvel superhero

13 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park (whose previous credits include Thor, The Avengers and Ant-Man) has taken to Twitter to reveal his early illustration of the Sorcerer Supreme for Doctor Strange. The exact date of the drawing is unknown, but star Benedict Cumberbatch most likely wasn’t attached yet, as the figure in the image the doesn’t bear any resemblance to the actor. Check out an alternate costume design for the superhero below…

The tweet the picture was attached to read: “Here’s an early #DoctorStrange concept design illustration I did for the film #conceptart #costume #design #marvelstudios #marvel.”

The concept art comes about a week after a sketch of Ryan Gosling as the character was revealed, reminding us all that not all actors wear the costume as well as Cumberbatch.
