Here is the full Doctor Strange press conference from Asia in Hong Kong in case you missed the live stream on 13th October. They were late to arrive so forward the video to the 20-minute mark. If you want to watch the red carpet event head to my older post here and click the video.
Benedict was involved in a short film called ‘Inseparable’ back in 2007, which has been released today for purchase from We Are Colony. You can purchase the film bundle for £1.99. Not bad for a double dose of Benedict as he plays twins Joe and Charlie. The film is 11 minutes in length. The film company also have ‘Third Star’ available to purchase as well.
The synopsis of the film is as follows:
Joe and Charlie are estranged identical brothers, who lead very separate lives. Joe is smooth, suited and successful. Charlie is dishevelled, drunk and disorganised. When Joe discovers he is dying, the brothers meet and form a plan to help Joe’s family cope and give Charlie an opportunity to redeem himself.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Natalie Press, Inseparable is an emotional and unique story of family, identity and starting again.
Benedict is also on the front cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine. The photo shoot by Jason Bell is stunning . There is a massive interview with Benedict, which you can read online here as well watch a video of him performing a magic trick. This is a must purchase!
Benedict is on the front cover of British GQ, which is on sale Thursday 6th October. Here are some excerpts from the interview:
Benedict Cumberbatch on the last series of Sherlock
“It might be the end of an era. It feels like the end of an era, to be honest. It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, but in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see. The idea of never playing him again is really galling.”
Benedict Cumberbatch on Brexit
“I was in Wales when it happened. And there is such poverty in Wales. There are real problems. Real problems. You know, we used to film in Merthyr Tydfil, one of the most impoverished places in that country, and of course people are angry. Of course people want change. What people are f***ed off about is that they were promised change that won’t happen.”
Been super busy this week, ‘Sherlocked’ over the weekend and then back to work and there has been a lot of Doctor Strange promotion, which is going to continue at a fast pace now I’m sure. So bare with me the next few days to catch up on the site. Join our twitter as updates are always tweeted straight away with news and stuff on Benedict. I’ve updated the gallery with some recently surfaced Doctor Strange images. Doctor Strange is also confirmed to be making an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War (This makes me sooooo happy).
In case you didn’t already know Empire magazine is a must buy. Benedict is on the cover and he is on Starburst, SFX, Arena Homme Korea, see below:
I will add my photos from ‘Sherlocked’ in a couple of days. If you met Benedict and I’m sure a lot of you did, we would love to add your photos of you with him in the fan section of our gallery. Credit is always given.
Here are some video clips: a TV spot, featurette ‘Inside the magic’ and ‘Open your Mind’ to get us all a bit more excited:
