I’ve noticed it before, haven’t you? That Benedict Cumberbatch is patently embarrassed by the name his fan collective has—as he is quick to point out—bestowed upon themselves? He doesn’t even like to say it. Start watching/reading Cumberbatch’s interviews en masse, as I have done over the last week, and it comes up a lot. Full Story

That was the most excellent term Simon Pegg coined to describe the shivery feeling people get around Benedict Cumberbatch. It came up in this terrible interview, which is worth a watch for how thoroughly Pegg dominates it and how quick he is off the cuff. Full Story

The world premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness (god, that TITLE) was held in London last night and Benedict Cumberbatch showed up in a sharp suit with his long, dark Sherlock hair. This is my favorite Batch—tall, alien, bespoke. Reviews of Darkness are rolling out and, as to be expected, everyone is singling out Cumberbatch and his performance, with a lot of people declaring it the push over the top. Full Story

Benedict Not-Posh

Last August, in advance of the HBO drama Parade’s End, Benedict Cumberbatch gave some interviews in which he talked about his background, the poshness thereof, and the relative annoyingness of Cumberbatch talking about it versus other people talking about it (we get annoyed when he talks about, he gets annoyed when we talk about it). Full Story

Looking good in that overcoat

There. I said something nice about re: appearance and Benedict Cumberbatch. He does wear an overcoat very well. Here he is with Martin Freeman in London working on Sherlock. Timely too because this morning I read a headline on Deadline with the following title: Sherlock Producer Pleads With Fans To Keep London Filming Locations Secret I guess the Sherlock faithful are going Twi-Hard on the set and they’re now worried about plot spoilers. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch but, really, Tom Stoppard

I’ve not yet started watching Parade’s End yet. I know! F-cking award season, right? But my travel slows down in a week or so and in between having a nervous breakdown over my deadlines, Parade’s End will be my jam, I promise, and I will probably love it, which will make me hate Downton Abbey even more, and I do really love to hate Downton Abbey. Full Story

After the fright wig situation Benedict Cumberbatch sported while filming the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate just a couple months ago, he is back now the way I prefer him—with Sherlock Holmes’ longer, darker hair. This is Cumberbatch at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in London, doing a lot to erase the horrors of the Assange look from my mind. Full Story

Can’t Unsee: Benedict Cumberbatch edition

In a piece of fantastical timing, I had no sooner defended my crush on Benedict Cumberbatch (again), than Dreamworks released the first still from The Fifth Estate, showing Cumberbatch in character as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Cannot unsee. Look, if Benedict Cumberbatch is not your flavor, I get it. Full Story

I have heard the name for years. I’ve seen the articles and whatnot. I knew he existed, but I never really paid attention until now, you know? I finally sort of really connected the face to the name for good. I feel like someone is f-cking with me. Like is this a big joke? Did you all get together just to punk me in this particular way? Guys, come on. Full Story

Star Trek Into Benedict Cumberbatch

Because the first teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness is all about The Batch. As I mentioned earlier this week, we don’t know a lot about the plot or new characters in Star Trek 2. This teaser does little to shed light on either of those things. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch Treks into Darkness

I cannot stop making fun of the Star Trek 2 title, Star Trek Into Darkness. It sounds like an Annie Lennox song. “When the world ends/And hope is lost/We will rise again/Star Trek Into Darkness/Yeah/Star Trek Into Darkness”. In my head, it’s set to an 80s synth beat, at least as good as the Skyfall theme. Full Story
