Doctor Strange


Hello All,

Action, Adventure, Fantasy and a world filled with unlimited wonders and magic graces the silver screens in Marvel’s Dr Strange on 3rd November 2016.

As it happened, I found myself seated with a selected few lucky movie junkies in the cold British winter of the magnificent IMAX Waterloo theater, to see the new Marvel franchise titled Dr Strange.  As usual, our host started off with the history lesson (lol) of the origins of this movie and how the title has been in development for 30 years.
