Doctor Strange Visual Effects

When it comes to blockbuster movies, visual effects companies can create (and destroy) anything. Sequences where entire cities are destroyed or an entire creature created with visual effects happen regularly, and the technology is so advanced that they pretty much all look incredible. The more impressive trick in visual effects these days is when one of the companies responsible for these effects makes it so that you aren’t even aware there’s a visual effect happening.

In the case of Doctor Strange, there are endless visual effects, mostly because of how our characters can manipulate the world around them. However, some of the more impressive visual effects you may not have realized were there to begin with. A Doctor Strange visual effects reel was recently published online, and I was floored to learn of the existence of more extensive visual effects than I had initially though, including some of the best digital doubles of actors you’ve ever seen.

Doctor Strange Honest Trailer

In Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme manages to survive a gnarly car accident, Mads Mikkelsen in full villain mode, an extremely feisty cape, and a third-act climax that isn’t a big CG battle in the sky. But can he withstand the cutting scorn of the Screen Junkies team?

… I mean, probably. Strange knows actual magic and has a fancy time-turning gem. And he’s played by an Oscar-nominated A-lister and controlled by Marvel Studios, one of the most reliable hit machines in Hollywood history. This dude’s gonna be fine. But the point we’re trying to make here is that it’s Strange’s turn to go under the knife and get the Honest Trailers treatment. So click through to watch the Doctor Strange Honest Trailer below.

Doctor Strange 2 Director - Scott Derrickson

Doctor Strange is officially out of theaters, and it racked up an impressive $675.8 million at the worldwide box office. It’s going to make even more now that it’s available to download on Digital HD, and next week it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD too. Despite the film’s success though, Marvel Studios has been quiet about any plans they might have for a sequel. That’s not stopping Benedict Cumberbatch from letting us know who he’d like to direct a follow-up.

Deliver Us from Evil and Sinister director Scott Derrickson made quite the leap in his career by taking on his first blockbuster tentpole with Doctor Strange. Apparently Derrickson’s work on the film was impressive enough to convince Benedict Cumberbatch that the director should be brought back behind the camera for Doctor Strange 2. Read More »
