Well, with the recent deluge of images and character posters, we knew a new trailer would be right behind the pack of under-dimensional beings attempting to invade our plane of existence. And so, it came: the new IMAX trailer for Doctor Strange, the fourth official trailer for those of you keeping count. Is this a good trailer? A better than good trailer? A great trailer? Yes, it is all these things and more, considering the serious amount of brand-new footage. Anyway, look up! Press play! Enjoy!
A few things that induced an involuntary production of goosebumps:
1. Dialog between The Ancient One and the Doctor, leading to a full-on display of palpable, magical energies.
2. The perfectly symmetrical splitting of a very large building:
3. Wong to Doctor Strange: “The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers. We safeguard it against more mystical threats.” I have a feeling Wong’s answer came after Strange offered the Avengers’ services in place of his own.
4. “Mister Doctor.” Strange and Kaecilius face off. Kaecilius isn’t impressed.
