I have added 2 new fantastic Doctor Strange HQ Stills to the gallery!

GK UK just released a new interview and photoshoot ahead of the release of Doctor Strange and Rogue One : A Star Wars Story. Check out the HQ pictures in our gallery and the interview below. They also premiered the new short film from Ford Edge, “Le Fantôme”.

Mads Mikkelsen, who stars as Galen Erso in Rogue One and Kaecilius in Doctor Strange, talks to GQ about balancing blockbusters and kitchen sink dramas, doing flying Kung Fu with Benedict Cumberbatch, and how Scandis are replacing Brits as the go-to Hollywood baddies. He also discusses being the new face of Ford, his love of car movies and why he is the kind of guy who buys a red bicycle.

GQ: What can you tell us about your Rogue One character?
Mads Mikkelsen: Very little. I can tell you he is [Galen Erso] the father of the main character, who’s called Jyn Erso, and I can say that he is a scientist. I think that’s about as far as I’m allowed to go.

You can’t say whether his intentions are good or bad?
Yes, I can. I can say good intentions; not necessarily the outcome.

What was it like working on Rogue One? What was your experience on set?
Well, it was great. Obviously it’s a gigantic set compared to the stuff I’m used to doing back in Europe, especially in Denmark. But, you make it a small, intimate set as well, in terms of the scenes. You just have to make the scene work even though you’re standing on a gigantic landing air force platform or wherever you are. Obviously it’s gigantic, but you try to make it small within the terms you’re working with.

These were huge indoor sets that they’d built?
Yeah, enormous sets. Spectacular, as well. Especially because you’re aware it’s this legendary universe and you run around and shoot stuff that you have grown up with – you’re actually part of one of those films. It’s slightly different because in the next film you’ll see a set that you’ve never seen before. Some of it is quite familiar even though it’s updated.

Denmark’s biggest feature film festival CPH PIX is set to launch its 8th edition on October 27 with Marvel’s fantasy Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Scott Derrickson’s anticipated feature co-stars Mads Mikklsen, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Cumberbatch plays a damaged neurosurgeon who sets out to repair his hands only to find himself protecting the world from inter-dimensional threats.

“We are thrilled that Disney and Marvel has given us the opportunity to premiere the film,” said festival director Jacob Neiiendam.

“Doctor Strange is a different kind of superhero, more philosophical and mystical, and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better showpiece to kick off the festival.”

The film, which opens in select territories in the week of October 24 and in the US one week after its premiere at CPH PIX, will see Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen tackle one of his biggest English-speaking roles as the film’s main villain, playing opposite Cumberbatch as the titular hero.

The festival’s opening night will also see the festival hand out the Nordic Film Award to a new Danish filmmaking talent.

The festival has moved from its April slot to Oct 27 – Nov 9 in 2016 and as previously announced it now includes the BUSTER film festival as a dedicated school and family programme.
