It's got a strong cast and Dr Strange was always one of my favorite Silver Age MARVEL characters, so I'll give it a shot.

I liked this from the Wikipedia entry, "Benedict Wong portrays Wong, Strange's valet...who assists in occult matters."

So, apparently, two Wongs do make a Rite!

The first trailer makes it look like a taut minimalist survival thriller. The second trailer makes it look like there will be some bullshit to get through. There was a Stephen King story that had a similar setup, but with an oil slick monster and at least someone gets laid.

Some enterprising programming director needs to schedule episodes rght after the movies based on those stories. "That's what they made into Total Recall?!"

It turned into a Kickstarter campaign, but unfortunately, the fundraising isn't doing too well. I would want to watch that, too.

(I don't know what to make of the budget, admittedly.)

When I first read the title and saw the screen cap, I assumed it was an Italian B-movie ripoff of Terminator. :)

I will definitely see that movie with my favourite squinting, scowling Englishman. :)

AA Dowd really liked Hell or High Water.

It's a teaser so you don't get much, but what are you gonna do, not see a new Christopher Nolan movie?

I dunno, it may be excellent, but I don't know if I can handle 2-3 hours of the opening of Saving Private Ryan run backwards. Plus, I don't want to contribute to whoever is going to get the undeserved Oscar nod for playing pensive and also quotable Winston Churchill.

I didn't see Interstellar. I don't think it caused the world to end...
