Marvel’s Doctor Strange overtakes Iron Man, passes $600 million at the worldwide box office

27 November 2016 10:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be falling down the charts following the arrival of Moana and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but Marvel is celebrating another box office milestone for Doctor Strange this weekend, with the film pushing its global haul to $616 million.

The Benedict Cumberbatch-headlined blockbuster has now surpassed the original Iron Man ($585 million) to become Marvel’s biggest single hero origin story, and is fast closing in on the $623.9 million haul of Iron Man 2. It should also pass Thor: The Dark World’s $644.6 million by close of play next weekend, and may even have enough in the tank to catch Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s $714.3 million before its run is up.

Doctor Strange concept art shows an early design for the Zealots

25 November 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Comic Book Movie stumbled upon what they believed was leaked early concept art of Mistress Death, a character who Thanos may be looking to impress when he tries to take the six Infinity Stones for himself, in Avengers: Infinity War, but it turns out it was actually an unused design for a different character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The art reveals an early design for one of the Zealots, a.k.a. Mads Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius’ henchmen from this month’s Doctor Strange. In the film, they are depicted wearing ancient-looking garb and heavy makeup but see a much different, more haunting design in the picture below…

Doctor Strange Review – Cumberbatch Soars In A Largely Lazy Story

7 November 2016 9:53 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Doctor Strange continues the emerging trend in comic/superhero films and TV of trying to bring the lesser-known characters to the wider audience. Following efforts like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man, Doctor Strange is an expansionary effort that hopes to further test the waters of films starring those superheroes that a majority of people probably never heard of before seeing the trailer.

The problem this film has to overcome is that the genre seems to want to move past efforts like Iron Man and Captain America: The First Avenger, which had long, complex origin stories that did surprisingly good jobs of introducing even those better-known characters. Things need to move faster these days, both on screen and behind the camera, not least because there are twenty other movies on the schedule and we need to keep pace.

We get little more than the trailer reveals when it comes to Dr. »

Mads Mikkelsen reveals how Doctor Strange’s mind-bending action sequences were shot

6 November 2016 5:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“What was in that tea?”

When Flickering Myth sat down with Mads Mikkelsen to talk about Doctor Strange, it was only the day after we had seen the film. And if our minds were still melted by the movie’s action sequences – which can best be described as soaking a Rubik’s Cube in ketamine – how in the Dark Lord’s name did the actors maintain their sense of place on a mostly green-screen backdrop? In other words, how do you know which skyscraper you’re running up the top of?

“[Scott] already had those thoughts,” Mikkelsen explained. “‘How am I going to explain this to people? If I’m going to stand here and gesture, it’s not going to work.’ So, smart enough, they made a little animated version of all the scenes so we could sneak peek and say, ‘oh, Ok – upside down, there he is, that’s the corridor, »

Doctor Strange – Review

3 November 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

When we last left the Marvel “movie-verse” (it might be six months on the nose), the alliance of heroes was nearly destroyed in Captain America: Civil War. The rift will take a while to repair, so perhaps some new blood is needed. Time to introduce another iconic character from the Marvel Comics pantheon. This champion against evil  belongs to a special superhero subset, one we’ve not seen in these last few big screen blockbusters. Let’s see, there are the “super-monsters” like the Hulk and the Fantastic Four’s the Thing. And there’s the “super-weaponists” like archers the Green Arrow and Hawkeye. This new movie subject belongs in the realm of the “super-magician”. Their roots go back to Houdini and his rivals who inspired radio’s “Chandu” and “Mandrake” from the newspapers’ comic strip pages. Of course, the comic books jumped on board with Dr. Fate, Ibis, Zatara, »

‘Doctor Strange’ Director Scott Derrickson Has No Appetite for Destruction

3 November 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Superhero movies are notorious for set pieces in which entire cities collapse around fighting heroes and villains. But “Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson wanted to go in the opposite direction. “You can create screen stimulus in other ways,” said the director, whose past films include the horror movie “Sinister.” “But you just have to create. You have to be inventive… It’s about a different approach to screen stimulus and to giving people their money’s worth when they’re paying to see a big event movie.” Without giving away too much, that means that “Doctor Strange” won’t rain death on Manhattan, »

Doctor Strange tracking $65+ million domestic opening

3 November 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After scoring a fantastic international opening, it looks like Doctor Strange could score a pretty sizable domestic number when it opens this weekend.

The Hollywood Reporter are saying that Doctor Strange is currently tracking $65-$70 million, but could do better. This means it will open ahead of Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk and Thor in terms of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but will be in the bottom tier of comic book films in 2016. It will be way below Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, but slightly ahead of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Doctor Strange will open against Dreamwork’s animated film Trolls, which is tracking a $35 million opening weekend.

So it looks like Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween will be dethroned after beating Jack Reacher: Never Look Back and Inferno.
