Marvel's Doctor Strange is Just As Magical In 8-Bit

Are you ready to experience Doctor Strange in a new way? The mystical blockbuster hit theaters earlier this month to rave reviews, leaving Marvel Studios with another hit on their hands. The heroic story follows a man named Dr. Stephen Strange who begins learning magic after a traumatic accident. And, now, fans of the Sorcerer Supreme can watch his solo film on CineFix’s 8-Bit Cinema.

The popular Youtube channel has taken Doctor Strange and ‘gamified’ it into a bonafide classic. The cute footage reimagines the film as if it were an arcade game, so fans can watch as a miniature version of Doctor Strange battles zealots and dark creatures alike. The video even makes an impromptu Konami Code reference when the hero has his showdown with Dormammu, so gamers and pop culture aficionados will be pleased with that slip.

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).

Marvel's Doctor Strange is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth, Stephen Broussard and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
