How to tell if a new video game is a science fiction movie
Posted On July 4, 2021
A video game has been dubbed a “science fiction movie” for its dystopian plot, cyberpunk setting, and cybernetic characters.
But the latest sci-fi film to get the sci-fantasy treatment, “Doctor Strange,” has a decidedly less futuristic take on the subject.
The film is about a sorcerer, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, who is a scientist who has created the “Doctor Who” franchise and has recently escaped from a prison in Scotland.
He goes to Paris and meets a mysterious young girl named Rachel Amber, played in the film by Chiwetel Ejiofor.
The two form a friendship that leads to Rachel’s pregnancy and, eventually, Rachel’s own birth.
After her mother dies, Rachel moves to the country to live with her aunt.
Rachel is given the name Doctor Strange, after the Marvel Comics character who is said to be the Sorcerer Supreme.
The Doctor Strange movie has been released in the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
The title was not given by the studio that wrote the film, and its release date has not been announced.
The latest movie, starring Benedict Cumberbridge, has also received glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike.
A report from Variety, a film review website, said that “Doctor Marvel” is “a bold and brave take on a classic Marvel villain” and “a very smart and thoughtful story.”
The film also had positive reviews from the New York Times and the New Yorker.
“Doctor Steve Strange” is set for release on November 7, 2020, and will be directed by Scott Derrickson.
