Doctor Strange finally opens at our box office next week. And a dozen other new products that will try to compete with him - if not separately, then at least by joint efforts. Although this is unlikely, given the degree of expectation of Benedict Cumberbatch, which has risen to dangerous limits, in the form of a powerful magician.|
If, for some strange and in no way justifying reason, you still do not know what kind of doctor this is and what the magic has to do with it, we inform you: the main novelty of the fall, or even the whole year, is another film comic strip of the studio Marvel , which will differ from the previous ones with an emphasis on fantasy. And even if you are not a fan of picture-book films, Strange is worth paying attention to, if only for its powerful cast, which, in addition to Cumberbatch , included Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
A quick review of the press allows us to conclude that the efforts of Marvel were not in vain. The impossible is possible - this conveyor is still capable of producing something impressive and surprising to the audience on the big screens. What's so special about this studio's 14th film? Early reviewers argue that the aforementioned emphasis on fantasy makes Scott Derrickson's painting special. Despite the fact that the first trailers for "Doctor Strange" made many viewers recall Nolan's "Inception" and even hint at the secondary nature (all these folding buildings and so on - have already seen, let's go on), critics unanimously praise the hallucinogenic the beauty of the film.
It turns out that "Doctor" really deserves to be seen in IMAX and 3D formats, especially if you were fond of the works of the liar Carlos Castaneda and were going to Mexico for peyote. But do not let all these odes to the trip movie scare away the old-school fans of movie comics: branded action, humor, Easter eggs, Stan Lee's cameo and after-credits scenes, no one is going to deprive you.
Girl on the Train
The closest competitor to Cumberbatch at the box office was the fragile Emily Blunt. In the adaptation of the bestseller "The Girl on the Train" , she will have to spy something through the train window and lead the viewer through a series of terrible secrets to a shocking ending. The film, which in terms of the level of suspense and gloomy atmosphere, was at first tried to be compared with "Gone Girl" by David Fincher, in fact looks a little weaker. Blunt did a great job, but it was too little to camouflage plot holes and make dull dialogue tense enough for a thriller. Thus, it is unlikely that this train will be able to keep up with the impetuous neurosurgeon who drank secret tea and set off on a journey to other worlds.
WAR AGAINST ALL
“I’ve always wondered: if you knock down a mime, will it make a sound?”... UK cinema will delight cinephiles with the crime comedy “War Against All” by director John Michael McDonagh (“ Once Upon a Time in Ireland "). The film is about a couple of police officers from Albuquerque, for whom corruption is just one of the mechanisms of work and an integral part of the profession. And this will continue until they come across a person who is not happy with this state of affairs. Despite the fact that the filming of the tape took place not in Ireland, and there is no Brendan Gleason in the cast, McDonn safely retains the spirit of his previous work. Black humor, biting dialogues, curious situations and a light touch of Tarantinoism - all this will certainly appeal to real fans of British cinema.<
Another representative of Europe in our box office is the Franco-Belgian drama "The Dancer" based on real events. The action of the tape starts in 1887. Marie-Louise buries her father and travels to New York to her mother. There she is going to fulfill her old dream - to dance professionally and perform on stage.
