Doctor Strange Sanctum Battle Clip And IMAX Promo Released

Marvel Studios has released a new gravity-defying and mind-bending clip from Doctor Strange, and it features the title character (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) emptying his bag of tricks as he battles Kaecilius (played by Mads Mikkelsen) and his henchman and henchwoman in the Sanctum Sanctorum.

The studio also released a new video in which Cumberbatch encourages potential moviegoers to see the film in IMAX. "We especially formatted over an hour of the film to fill more of the screen exclusively for IMAX theaters," he says. "Typically, I reserve the use of my reality-bending powers for the sake of saving the universe as we know it, but no, we did this because it looks cool. Really cool."


From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.

The cast features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Into Darkness, The Imitation Game), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) and Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel).

The film is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Derrickson, Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).
