Posted January 16, 2017 by Eoin Friel in News

Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Home Entertainment have officially announced the Blu-ray release of Doctor Strange. The latest action-adventure blockbuster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins, and is being released by way of two Blu-ray combo packs: a 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD Cinematic Universe Edition and a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD standard edition set. It is slated for release Feb 28, 2017.

Best Buy is also offering two exclusive “Eye of Agamotto” Steelbook versions of the release, via a 3D combo pack and a standard Blu-ray combo pack.

Doctor Strange, the story of Dr. Stephen Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts, has mesmerized both audiences and critics, pulling in more than $658.3 million at the worldwide box office to date and earning a 90% critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. The biggest single-character introduction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it also carries on Marvel Studios’ winning streak as the 14th consecutive MCU film to debut at #1 at the domestic box office.

Synopsis: World-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) is changed forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange — armed with newly acquired magical powers — is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.

Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil, Sinister) directs with Kevin Feige, p.g.a., producing. Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour, Prometheus) and Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill (Sinister, Sinister 2).
