Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetal Ejiofor star in Doctor Strange. It opens on November 4th. Check out the ever so slightly psychedelic trailer after the break.

Sherlock - Deerstalker and Handlebar Mustache

Take Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Watson and stick them back in the 19th Century and what do you get? Ghosts, by Jove! Ghosts!
