Congratulations to Benedict Cumberbatch for winning best actor at the What’s On Stage Awards for his role in Hamlet. The What’s on Stage Awards are the only theatre awards voted for by the general public.
So after going through all sorts of problems with the site due to a rogue theme we have a fresh new look courtesy of a wonderful follower. Please bear with us while we try to work out how to integrate the gallery with it so that we can get them back on-line. Hopefully we’ll have everything back in one piece soon!
It’s been a rough few weeks technologically here at Cumberbatchweb. The theme updated when I was away and completely wiped the look of the site and made the gallery unusable. Thanks to a very wonderful follower (sometimes the internet is amazing) the site is back up but bear with us while we try and work out what theme is needed.
2015 was a relatively quiet year for Benedict Cumberbatch. I mean he only got married, had a son, got nominated for an Oscar, got nominated for 2 BAFTA Awards, got awarded an CBE for his charity work, starred in a sold out production of Hamlet and was awarded his own Marvel franchise in Doctor Strange. Yep quite the slow year for him….
Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in The War Magician according to The Hollywood Reporter. Benedict is attached to star in the The War Magician as British hero Jasper Maskelyne, the titular magician whose clever illusions helped the Allied forces fight against the Nazis during World War II.
The film will be co-produced by Benedict’s production company SunnyMarch.
Letters Live is returning to Freemasons Hall from the 10th-15th March 2016 and tickets are on sale now. Top price seats are £75. There is also a family matinee on the Saturday (please note this is different from the other shows being 75 minutes long with no interval).
The first concept art has been revealed for Doctor Strange. The film which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel superhero Doctor Stephen Strange recently started principal photography in Nepal. Directed by Scott Derrickson (who directed my favourite horror film in years – Sinister) the frankly stellar cast was recently confirmed as featuring Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, A Bigger Splash), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, The Martian), Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Casino Royale), Michael Stuhlbarg (Trumbo) and Rachel McAdams (True Detective, Sherlock Holmes). The film is due to be released in November 2016.
