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

7 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 »

The Pro Files: Celeb Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin on Emma Stone, Social Media and Nars Orgasm Blush

15 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Emma Stone’s makeup artist has no concept of time, but that’s probably a good thing — as it’s 10:30 p.m. when the artist picks up my call. With her longtime client at an event for La La Land, Rachel Goodwin finds a quiet spot in a Paris hotel to talk. She’s been on the road for days, and has a cold — but neither that or the hour dampen her mood. Goodwin is game to talk about makeup any time. And after an illustrious 24-year career in the industry, she still speaks about it with a level of drive, »

Project Runway: Junior Finale: Did the Right Designer Win Season 2?

23 February 2017 7:28 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though I’ve yet to fully recover from Tieler’s elimination, I have to admit that the four designers remaining atop Thursday’s Project Runway: Junior finale deserved to be there — and the proof was in their (mostly) stunning collections.

All four entered the finale with confidence, but as Tim Gunn slithered fabulously around the workroom to offer his final critiques, some of that confidence began to dwindle. In fact, Izzy was pretty much the only designer who emerged unscathed; Tim loved her “polished” collection, which »

Director Travis Mathews Talks About His Psycological Thriller Discreet

18 February 2017 6:59 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Discreet is a psychological thriller about a mentally disturbed drifter, who in returning home to Texas to make amends with an alcoholic mother, is confronted with a haunted past. Desperate to deal with his demons, Alex sets out to avenge the source, while engaging in psychosexual rendezvous with various strangers along the way. Flashbacks to abusive scenes, creepy motivational videos and images of a floating dead body, blur the lines between reality and fantasy in this thought-provoking, twisted mystery.

The film made its World Premier at the Berlinale film festival this past week, giving us a chance to meet and chat with director, Travis Mathews (Interior Leather Bar and I Want Your Love).  In speaking with Mathews, one can easily detect his fascination with exploring taboo topics and delving into the deeper psyche of his characters, which explains his psychology background.

Tilda Swinton Is The Frontrunner To Replace Peter Capaldi On Doctor Who

17 February 2017 12:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nearly 50 years on the air and over 13 different iterations of the popular British character, Doctor Who might finally become a woman. If recently rumors are to be believed, that is. With Peter Capaldi set to vacate the phone booth after this newest season, the position is wide open and, according to recent reports, Tilda Swinton is the frontrunner to lead the show.

ComicBook.com tells us that Swinton isn’t officially poised for the part, but she’s the most likely candidate at this point. Admittedly, it’s still very early on in the process, as the character won’t be introduced until this year’s Christmas Special, but it’s a promising first step. In light of the open casting card, many fans have clamored for a female version (and honestly, why not?), and it’s an encouraging, eager-filled new progression forward if they go in this direction. »

‘The Great Wall’ review: Dir. Zhang Yimou (2017)

16 February 2017 11:24 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Great Wall review: Matt Damon reluctantly helps out a Chinese army in this enjoyable and lavish monster yarn.

The Great Wall review by Luke Ryan Baldock, February 2017.

The Great Wall review

There’s no escaping the PC uproar over Matt Damon’s casting in The Great Wall. It’s been the basis for a sea of unending jokes based around whitewashing. Although whitewashing has been a serious issue for years in Hollywood, Damon’s casting is actually progressive. Being a Chinese/USA co-production that employs a lot of Chinese talent; there are fewer Chinese films with non-Chinese leads, than there are Hollywood films with non-white leads. So let’s celebrate rather than moan. It’s certainly not the same as Tom Cruise taking a lead in The Last Samurai or Tilda Swinton’s divisive casting in Doctor Strange. It’s merely a big budget Chinese/USA co-production that wants to get that Western dollar. »

Doctor Who: Tilda Swinton Is Favored To Be The Next Doctor

16 February 2017 9:52 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s been a longstanding desire for many Doctor Who fans that an upcoming Doctor be female. Doctor Who is a series that’s been around for decades, and in that time they’ve gone through more than twelve Doctors (including the War Doctor). Yet despite the laundry list of Doctors, none of them have been female. Before Peter Capaldi signed on as the most recent iteration of the Time Lord, there were a few British actresses who fans thought would have been a good fit for the quirky character.

Peter Capaldi’s time is nearing an end — if you’ll recall, he recently announced that this upcoming season of the sci-fi show would, in fact, be his last. With that in mind, the eternal question of “who will be the next Doctor?” is circulating the web.

Tilda Swinton is the bookies fave for Doctor Who role

16 February 2017 9:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tilda Swinton is the favourite to take the role of Doctor Who on television once Peter Capaldi bails out later in the year. Apparently there has been a big bet placed in the last 48 hours which has propelled the Doctor Strange and Orlando actress to the top of the list.

The odds now stand at 7/2 for Swinton to take the role. She was previously at 10-1. The new odds position the actress ahead of previous favourite Kris Marshall, who is still 4-1 to replace Capaldi. Olivia Colman is 5-1 and Maxine Peake is 8-1.

Capaldi will complete the current series, which is now shooting and depart the BBC show after this year’s Christmas special, which will air on Christmas Day.

41 Things We Learned From The Doctor Strange Audio Commentary

16 February 2017 7:46 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

No matter how much we cover about these films leading up to their release, the amount of work that goes into them, and the number of stories that can be derived are almost endless. As such, there's always a good number of facts and anecdotes that slip between the cracks of all our coverage. If you're a film junkie like us, audio commentaries serve as great insight into these films from the filmmakers themselves, and the one for Doctor Strange was no exception.

In the Digital HD release of Doctor Strange, director Scott Derrickson delved into many details from the film. From the controversial casting of Tilda Swinton to some of the callbacks and homages he threw into the picture, there were a great number of details we relished in our watchthrough of the audio commentary.

Here are 41 things we learned from Scott Derrickson in the commentary:

Tilda Swinton is the new favorite to replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

16 February 2017 1:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ladbrokes has updated its odds with regards Peter Capaldi’s replacement in Doctor Who. According to the bookmaker, the new favourite is Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton, which would put her in the history books as the first ever female Doctor.

Keep in mind that these are just betting odds founded on a great degree of research, taking into account statements from actors, historical trends, and the push to finally give audiences a female Doctor (Ladbrokes are offering just 5/4 that a female actress will be cast).

Some other interesting names under consideration are Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and Richard Ayoade, while Kris Marshall is 4/1 second favourite following his departure from Death in Paradise.

Berlinale 2017 Review: The Party, Drawing Room Satire at its Finest

15 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Sally Potter is not normally known for comedy; her most famous film, Orlando (which put Tilda Swinton on the map) certainly has its comedic moments, but her work (such as The Tango Lesson and Yes) tend to more serious examinations of what my colleague Sophie Mayer calls the politics of love. In her latest film The Party, however, she turns her astute eye in a most hilarious way to this politics of love (and the love of politics). Part biting satire, part drawing room farce, its frenetic vision of the most disastrous celebratory dinner is a masterpiece, and a timely commentary on recent political events and the said politics of human emotion. Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas) has just been appointed Shadow Minister of Health in the UK Parliament, fulfilling...

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'. »
