‘Doctor Strange’ Runtime Revealed, Will Be Released Earlier in the UK

By September 8, 2016

With only a few big blockbusters left to be released this year, Doctor Strange is continuing to emerge as one of this year’s most anticipated films, looking like a mix between Inception and mysticism set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which basically means it doesn’t look like anything we’ve ever seen before. If that San Diego Comic-Con footage was any indication as well, it looks like the world-bending effects seen in all of the trailers so far are only just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the film’s visuals.

Set to completely blow open a new sector of the MCU as well, it looks like one country in the world will be getting the film almost a full two weeks before the rest of the world.

The Marvel UK & Ireland Twitter account has announced that Doctor Strange will be released on October 25th in the UK, 10 days before US audiences will get the film on November 4th.

In addition to the new release date details as well though, theatres in the UK areas have already begun prepping for the release of the film, and a chain called Event Cinemas may have just revealed the film’s official runtime to be 130 minutes.

This stays in line with almost all of the other Marvel releases as well, shorter than their longest film to date with Captain America: Civil War clocking in at 147 minutes, but longer than their shorter films like Ant-Man or Thor: The Dark World. Considering just how much the film will have to do though, something tells us that runtime will probably fly by while you’re in the theatre, eyes probably glazing over from the sheer visual spectacle the film promises to bring.

Doctor Strange is set to hit theatres in the US on November 4th.
