Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton compare cheekbones at the “Doctor Strange” LA Premiere

Posted on October 21, 2016

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton attend the premiere of “Doctor Strange”” in Hollywood, California.

 

Just look at these two specimens:

To be honest, if the movie was 90% them just  catching the light and reading things aloud in deep voices, we could probably be talked into a ticket.

But this is rather standard and disappointing. You’re playing easily the weirdest superhero to get a movie this big and your co-star is an alien from the planet Fashionistex who can be counted on to show up looking weird and eye-catching. You’re tall, thin and have the exact bearing to wear modern men’s fashion and make some slightly edgy or attention-seeking choices. Benedict, shame on you.

We expect much more from the next appearance, sir.

That’s a bit more like it.

It’s not our favorite Tilda look. We tend to like her more androgynous in ensembles a bit more striking than this. But it’s not as if this is standard or generic. We like the oddness of the shape. She can work a chartreuse, which is an uncommon skill. Like Benedict, we expected a bit more from her on this poledance, but this is still a fairly eye-catching and just-strange-enough look.

But really, you two. Step it up. This is … so not what we pictured for this poledance given the project. Time to bump up the weird factor in your style choices.
