Sherlock – The Abominable Bride

Well I hope you enjoyed the Sherlock special on New Years Day. If you missed it you can catch up on BBC iplayer and if you want your own copy on DVD or Blu Ray you can pre-order it from Amazon. It is released on 11th January and it is a 2-disc edition.

I will be adding screen caps when I get the Blu Ray as the quality will be far better. So stay tuned for that.

Entertainment Weekly have released some more promotional photos from the movie, which you can see in the gallery here. The photos are taken by Michael Muller. Here are some excerpts below from the article, which you can read in full here.

“[Benedict] was someone that we were very interested in for a very long time,” reveals Feige. “But he kept getting more popular, and more popular, and he kept getting busier, and busier, and it looked like the timing wasn’t going to work. So we looked at some other actors for a while and ultimately decided, ‘We have to try and make it work with Benedict and with his schedule.’”

“There’s all sorts of craziness [in Doctor Strange],” says Cumberbatch. “Falling, flying, jumping, fighting, punching, getting punched. It’s really rough and tumble.”

Third Star screen caps

I have finally got around to adding over 1000 screen caps from the film ‘Third Star’.

Sherlock The Abominable Bride new trailer drops

The BBC released a new trailer for the Sherlock Special yesterday and you can see some new footage in that trailer below:

Watch Benedict performing ‘Hate’

Below is the CNN video for ‘Inside Africa’. Benedict performs ‘Hate’ from the Children’s Monologues.

Benedict attached to ‘The War Magician’

This is not a confirmed project, but Empire are reporting that Benedict is attached to star in ‘The War Magician’. Empire have written a short synopsis of what the film will be about:

It’s the story of real-life magician and illusionist Jasper Maskelyne, who, along with a group of colleagues dubbed The Magic Gang, became an integral part of a unit focused on the action along the Suez Canal in World War II. He devised ingenious – and very large scale – illusion systems that virtually made tanks invisible from the air, hid whole buildings full of ammunition and supplies, and even made an entire city vanish and reappear several miles away. Maskelyne joined the Royal Engineers at the start of the war, thinking that his skills could be used to create camouflage. He convinced skeptical officers by creating the illusion of a German warship on the Thames using only mirrors and a model. The military eventually deployed him to the North African theatre in the Western Desert, although he spent most of his time there entertaining the troops. But his work was enough that he ended up on Hitler’s personal blacklist.

There is no Director for the project yet either so this one has a long way to go.

Benedict writes to Santa

Benedict Cumberbatch has written a letter to Santa Claus asking him for “a little more time for children to be children”.

He was writing to promote the Letters Live event next March, which celebrates the power of literary correspondence.

The Sherlock star wrote:

This is what I’d like to ask you to help with. A little more time for children to be children. Stretch the moment of magic and playfulness. Distract them from the realities of a world gone mad so that they can laugh with their breath rather than sob with their tears.

Especially those caring for family members, or suffering illness, hunger or poverty. Especially those hiding in buildings as bombs rain down, or being handed shaking with fear or cold into a boat to escape environmental disaster or war. Please help to light up their worlds with a moment of joy and hope.

Spare a thought too for those millions who want to write to you but through illiteracy can’t. Hear their words and help to give them the time and chance to learn how to read and write so they can better their lives and escape their impoverished beginnings.

He signed off promising to leave some extra port and mince pies for the man in red, and asked for a lightsaber.

Cumberbatch was among a number of stars who penned letters to Santa including Annie Lennox, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Thandie Newton and Russell Brand – who thanked him for “Jeremy Corbyn, Charlotte Church and the new series of Peep Show”.
