I just got back from viewing the 15 minute presentation of footage from the upcoming Doctor Strange movie on November 4th in IMAX 3D. NO SPOILERS.
I thought that the footage was incredible. Benedict Cumberbatch embodies the role of Doctor Stephen Strange. He is Doctor Strange (Period). The biggest issue leading into this movie was Tilda Swinton as The Ancient. Hardcore fans of Dr. Strange from the comics didn’t like that Marvel switched the role from a male to a female. Honestly, I thought that she did a really good job from bring the character to life with warmth and hope. I thought that the visual effects were awesome and it reminded me a lot of 2001: A Space Odyssey I will say that after seeing the footage that this might be Marvel’s best movie since Guardians of The Galaxy. The jokes in this movie feels natural because that has been one of Marvel’s weakest link in the movies that they have done the past year and a half. The jokes were well timed and funny not clunky as in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The 3D was a little too much especially in some of the really incredible mind bending scenes. I would love to see this in IMAX 2D not in IMAX 3D. I cannot wait until November 4th when Doctor Strange arrives in movie theaters.
