Marvel Studios’ ever-growing cinematic universe continues to impress. After introducing audiences to The Avengers, the studio started to venture into the lesser-known territory of their comic book catalogue in hopes of reaching more than just fans of the superhero genre. Most recently, they won over general audiences with movies such as a space opera that featured a gun-toting, talking raccoon and a comedic heist with a man in a suit that could reduce him to the size of an ant. Now, Marvel Studios goes further down the rabbit hole with Doctor Strange, which introduces magic to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) leading the way as the Sorcerer Supreme, not only is Doctor Strange a dazzling psychedelic journey, but it is also the best Marvel Studios origin story since Iron Man.
From Marvel Studios and director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) comes Dr. Strange. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Amy Landecker and Mads Mikkelsen, the film is scheduled for theatrical release November 4, 2016.
From Open Road Films and director John Hillcoat (The Road) comes the gritty action film Triple 9. Starring Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer, Norman Reedus, Clifton Collins Jr and Anthony Mackie, the film hits theaters February 19, 2016.
