Tilda Swinton is The Ancient One in DOCTOR STRANGE

Marvel’s eagerly awaited big screen version of Doctor Strange will be unleashed onto UK cinema screens on Friday October 28, starring an awesomely cool, androgynous TILDA SWINTON as the iconic ‘The Ancient One’, complete with no hair!

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange focuses primarily on the titular character’s origin story. In 1963, after being crippled in an accident, talented neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, the next Sorcerer Supreme – played by Benedict Cumberbatch – goes on a quest to find a way to repair his mangled hands, eventually meeting TILDA‘s The Ancient One and her student Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).

With The Ancient One as his mentor, he sets out on a journey to master the mystic arts.

Doctor Strange sets a new tone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, focusing on magic and extra-dimensional beings. The film is excellently conceived and great fun, and TILDA is spellbinding in her magical role, fitting in perfectly to the unique Marvel universe.

Check out the trailer below and make sure you see it on the big screen from October 28.
