1 hour ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mads Mikkelsen up for Doctor Strange villain role? Mads Mikkelsen in early talks for Doctor Strange villain role – but who is he playing?

Not content with just starring in a Star Wars film, Hannibal alumni Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks for a role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie. Mikkelsen will appear in Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One movie in 2016, and now will play an unnamed part in Marvel’s Phase 3 flick.

Variety are reporting the news that Mikkelsen will assume one of the villain roles in the movie, which sees Benedict Cumberbatch star as Stephen Strange.

Before he met the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange was an unlikable and egotistical neurosurgeon. Everything changes when a car accident limits Strange’s use of his hands, sending him on a maddening quest for a miracle cure. This origin story introduces the magical and mystical realms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Star Wars Instagram Offers Up Possible The Force Awakens Trailer Tease with New Footage

3 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Lucasfilm and Disney have attracted more attention to the official Star Wars Instagram account by quietly uploading 15 seconds of footage from what might be the next Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens trailer that may or may not be right around the corner.

The footage combines scenes we've seen from previous trailers and TV spots with a couple new shots. The first features Rey (Daisy Ridley) standing in the woods and staring intently with emotion in her eyes toward the sky. Poe Dameron's (Oscar Isaac) rotund astromech droid Bb-8 shifts around behind her.

The second shot, and definitely the money shot, begins with Kylo Ren igniting his lightsaber in the woods as seen in the first The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Then the scene cuts to Finn (John Boyega), standing in the same woods and igniting Luke Skywalker's blue lightsaber to face Ren and looking nervous while doing so. »

Mads Mikkelsen is set to jump from Star Wars: Rogue One to Marvel's Doctor Strange, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch...

Production starts later in the year on Marvel's next production, Doctor Strange. Scott Derrickson is directing this one, which has long since now cast Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role. Further members of the cast include Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

And now another name can be added.

The latest to join the Marvel cinematic universe is Mads Mikkelsen, best known for his starring role in Hannibal, and for his villain role in Casino Royale (although check out The Hunt if you haven't, a really strong, impressive piece of work).

Mikkelsen is currently shooting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Variety now reports that he's set to take on one of the villain roles in Doctor Strange. The exact role hasn't been identified at this stage. Note that at one stage, »

Video Games: Behold The Battle Of Jakku In New Star Wars Battlefront Screens

6 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Battle of Jakku took place place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, and will be available as free Dlc for those who buy Star Wars Battlefront. In the artwork below, a Star Destroyer has crash landed, and from the belly of this battle-scarred metal giant, a myriad of Imperial ground troops have evacuated and engaged with Rebel troops, also strangers to this desert planet. "There’s a David and Goliath theme to this," says Dice Concept Artist Anton Grandert. "The epic, huge super structures of the Star Destroyers contrast against the tiny but brave Rebel soldiers fighting the Imperial forces. We wanted to portray a battle completely surrounding you, in every direction. Debris is falling from the sky, telling the story of battles above. On the surface of the planet you can see ground troops as well as X-wings, all taking part of the fight. »

Star Wars Box Office Predictions Are Already Insanely High

8 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We already know that when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens later this year, it.s going to make a lot of money. Even if Lucasfilm has cautioned that it may not make as much as people think, however it goes down, it.ll do just fine. According to one new prediction, however, The Force Awakens is going to make an insane amount of money, like just a stupid, ridiculous number. According to Deadline, some industry experts are already predicting that when The Force Awakens hits theaters in December, it will make historic sums of money. The number being bandied about right now is that we could be in for a $615 million global opening, as in people guess that the J.J. Abrams-directed space opera might make $615 million in its first weekend. Yes, that is nuts. To provide some context, if this does indeed happen, which is a big if, »

Why am I not as excited about 'Star Wars' now as I was in 1999?

8 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the memories that I treasure most from 1998 came when I was driving from La to Palo Alto with my friend Pete. I had a copy of "The Beginning" with me, the script by George Lucas, and he had a CD player loaded up with the soundtracks for the first three films. I read the script aloud while he drove, and by the time we got to his family's house for Thanksgiving, we were both convinced that we were going to get an amazing gift in movie theaters in May of 1999. History has proven the two of us to be a wee bit overenthusiastic. While I am not a rabid prequel-hater the way many people are (watching the films with my kids radically changed my opinions on them and their place in the overall saga), I think there is something magical about the original three that only becomes more clear with time and distance. »

‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ is ready to light up concert halls

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What would “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” be without John Williams’ heartwarming, awe-inspiring score? Not the same movie, for sure. That Oscar-winning music for the beloved 1982 Steven Spielberg film will be spotlighted when “E.T.” is screened at concert halls around the world, beginning next week. Orchestras will perform the score live in sync with HD screenings of the film about a 10-year-old boy named Elliott and the lost little alien he befriends. The screening series is part of Film Concerts Live!, which has given a similar big screen, big live music treatment to “Back to the Future” and J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek.” Jamie Richardson, one of the producers of the concert screening series, told HitFix that watching recording sessions of movie scores is an experience he’s thoroughly enjoyed, and that’s partially what inspired him to start Film Concerts Live! “To hear [film scores] come to life with a 90-piece orchestra and see »

Mads Mikkelsen rumoured to have joined Doctor Strange

11 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Marvel is about to break the Internet – or at least Tumblr.

Variety has now reported that “Hannibal”’s Mads Mikkelsen is in talks to portray an undisclosed villain opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange.


In the upcoming Marvel film, Dr. Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon, becomes involved in the mystical arts and starts jumping into alternate dimensions after a career-ending car accident. Under the tutelage of the “Sorcerer Supreme,” the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), Strange becomes Earth’s protector against all mystical enemies.

Chiwetel Ejiofor is already cast as Strange’s main foe, Karl Amadeus Mordo (a.k.a. Baron Mordon), the former “Sorcerer Supreme” disciple who eventually betrays Strange and the Ancient One.

Mikkelsen is also confirmed for another geek-friendly Disney film, Star Wars: Rogue One, which stars Felicity Jones.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange is slated for late 2016.
