The featurette offers an exclusive look at how Director Scott Derrickson specially formatted more than an hour of the film for IMAX to transport moviegoers into the film’s alternate realities in mind-blowing fashion.

The featurette also provides exclusive commentary from talent including Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong, and Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, about the unbelievable cinematic experience fans will witness in IMAX 3D.

Exclusively in IMAX® cinemas, Doctor Strange will feature more than an hour of specially formatted IMAX sequences, which will be presented in an expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio to fill more of the screen – delivering audiences 26 percent more of the image than standard theatres for a truly unique and immersive experience.

To illustrate the expanded aspect ratio, IMAX created GIFs and a special image that depict what movie-goers will see in standard theatres versus what they will see in IMAX.

The film co-stars Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Scott Adkins, Benedict Wong and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Helmed by Scott Derrickson, who most recently worked on Deliver Us From Evil and Sinister, the film is out now across the UK.
