The first time I saw Zoolander I didn’t like it, but it grew on me after multiple viewings, so after I saw Zoolander 2 and did not like it, I actually went back the next day and tried it again. Maybe it just needed to grow on me so I could properly appreciate its absurdity, but no. Zoolander 2 isn’t secretly brilliant like its predecessor, nor does it have the kind of absurd humor it takes time to unpack. Full Story

MAYBE SPOILERS DEPENDING ON SENSITIVITY On New Year’s Day the BBC and PBS finally got their sh*t together and aired Sherlock at the same time, instead of making the US wait weeks for it, which is dumb and pointless in this day and age. It’s the one-off, Victorian-set holiday special—even though it really doesn’t have anything to do with the holidays—titled “The Abominable Bride”, and it’s meant to hold us over until series four airs sometime in twenty-whenever Benedict Cumberbatch has the time. Full Story

In the wake of New New Star Wars annihilating the box office, Marvel wants to remind us that whatever money the Force didn’t claim goes straight into Tony Stark’s piggy bank, so they get the last cover the year from Entertainment Weekly to introduce Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange. Full Story

Normally when I post about Benedict Cumberbatch, I take great pleasure in choosing the most unattractive photos, because I know Sarah really likes looking at them. You know what though? It’s Christmas. And it’s time to be charitable. And Cumberbatch appreciators like Sarah, who are not f-cked up and insane, have endured enough, what with the CumHards running amok on the internet with their crazy theories. Full Story

Will you join me in some humour at the end of a long day, courtesy the CumHards? Because it’s after 5pm and I still have an interview to do for etalk, two hours to go, and I needed this, I really needed it. And crazy stupid fans are always, always good for some joy. A reader called Juliet just sent over an article about Benedict Cumberbatch’s CumHards and their conspiracy theories and how they tried to get the writer fired. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch, king of the reptiloids of Garlactaca-9, was made a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II, a human monarch wholly unsuspecting of her world’s pending colonization. The CBE is awarded to “those making distinguished or notable contributions in their own specific areas of activity”. Full Story

Here is Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of Doctor Strange, which has begun production just days after Cumberbatch finished his run as Hamlet on the West End. They’re on location in Nepal, which means that Tilda F*cking Swinton is probably around, too, since it’s her character that Stephen Strange meets in Nepal. Full Story

Sherlock season four won’t premiere until next year—waiting for this show is the worst—so to tide us over the BBC and Masterpiece Theater are giving us a Christmas special this December, for which we now have a trailer. Christmas specials aren’t really a thing in the US anymore—unless you count the inevitable Singer From Network Competition Show Holiday Extravaganza Night—because the Star Wars Holiday Special pretty much ruined Full Story

That’s my takeaway from the news that Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to star in a movie called The Current War, based on the nineteenth century patents arms race between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse for control of the budding electric industry. At the heart of the Current War was Edison’s direct current system going up against NIKOLA TESLA’s alternating current system—Tesla designed the electric grid as we know it today—which was a much more efficient, and cheaper, way of transmitting large quantities of electricity. Full Story
