Marvel brings forward Doctor Strange's UK release date

Marvel's new blockbuster Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton, has seen its release date brought forward. 

The movie was due to hit cinemas on October 28th, but has now been brought forward by three days to October 25th. 


Cumberbatch stars as a Stephen Strange, cocky surgeon who loses the use of his hands, and, in a last ditch attempt to regain his former powers, discovers magic. His mentor on this quest is a Tibetan mystic known as the Ancient One (Swinton), who is training pupils to be the next sorcerer supreme.  

Starring alongside Cumberbatch and Swinton in the movie are Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg and Mads Mikkelsen. 

Scott Derrickson, best known for directing The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, Sinister and last year's Deliver Us From Evil, directs Doctor Strange, while Jon Spaihts has written the script.

The film is Marvel's 14th movie. You can check out the 13 previous instalments here in hmv's online store.
