Releasing on Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX screens countrywide this week is the powerful story of neurosurgeon turned sorcerer, Doctor Strange. The film weaves its magical powers onto the big screen for the maximum 3D IMAX movie experience on Friday, 04 November. The film also releases at Ster-Kinekor sites countrywide and in its luxurious Cine Prestige cinemas in both 2D and 3D formats.
From Marvel Studios comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever following a horrific car accident that robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in a most unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj.
He quickly learns that this is not just a centre for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long, Strange—armed with his 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.
The film, directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister), stars Oscar award-winner Benedict Cumberbatch at Dr Strange, with Tilda Swinton as the mystic, Ancient One. Co-stars include Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Doctor Strange features more than an hour of specially formatted IMAX sequences, and has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie and part of the non-stop action.
