Time Goes Backwards in Clever TV Spot for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'
"His time is now." Okay - this is cool. Disney has released a new, 30-second TV spot for Marvel's Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, and the entire thing runs in reverse. You need to see this! Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the Sorcerer Supreme, a comic book superhero that gains special mystical powers after meeting "The Ancient One", played by Tilda Swinton. This also features Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Scott Adkins, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg and Benedict Wong. I needed to post about this TV spot because it's so clever and so cool. I love that they even run the dialogue backwards, I'm impressed Disney went with this. Hopefully it means they're excited for everyone experience this movie.
Here's the latest TV spot for Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, first posted on Marvel's Twitter:

Doctor Strange is directed by American filmmaker Scott Derrickson, of the films The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Sinister and Deliver Us from Evil previously.
