Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 116 Minutes

“Where do they come from? What do they want?”

First contact, the introductory meeting between humanity and extraterrestrial life, was a common theme in the work of H. G. Wells, most notably in 1898’s The War of the Worlds and 1901’s The First Men in the Moon. The term itself, however, wasn’t coined until 1945, with American author Murray Leinster’s novelette, “First Contact.”

Since then, filmmakers have been fascinated by what that pivotal moment would be like, from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) to Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Independence Day (1996), and Contact (1997). Most recently, we’ve seen first contact — combined with the message from space trope — in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

Marvel Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is the 14th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Based on the 1963 comic book character of the same name that debuted in Strange Tales, the film follows Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as he goes from brilliant but egotistic neurosurgeon to a man with nothing but a pair of crushed hands suffered in a car accident. Strange uses his last bit of money and travels to find The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who resides in Kamar-Taj. It is there where he learns what it takes to become the Sorcerer Supreme.

We were fortunate enough to sit down recently with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to the cast, director Scott Derrickson, and Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige about the film, how they made hand choreography look like magic, their geek-out moments, and what it was like to work with each other. Check out the top 10 things they said at the press conference here below.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange
Directors: Scott Derrickson
Screenwriters: Scott Derrickson, Jon Spaihts, C. Robert Cargill
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: November 4, 2016

Marvel Studios has a reputation for raising the superhero movie bar higher and higher with each and every new release. There has been a total of 14 films since they kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man way back in 2008, but Doctor Strange will be the first to venture into the psychedelic world of mysticism. The Scott Derrickson-directed film pays homage to Steve Dikto’s creation by filling the screen with mystical landscapes, M.C. Escher-like bends, and psychedelic visuals that will make even the casual fans cheer. While it is visually stunning in more ways than you can count, Doctor Strange does have a few narrative and pacing flaws. But it is not enough to hurt the overall enjoyment of the movie, as it just retreads familiar territory but with stunning psychedelic visuals. Check out the full review below.
