Doctor Strange 1978 Movie Coming to Shout’s Blu-ray Next Week

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness in theaters in two weeks, but next week his first film will be released on Blu-ray from the Shout factory. No, not the 2016 movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, the first. Form 1978, starring Peter Hooten as Stephen Strange and Jessica Walter as Morgan le Fay. What, you’ve never heard of this? It’s not very good, but it has its charms. This Blu-ray contains a remastered transfer that uses original elements, but without any special features, except for a commentary track from some pop culture journalists. View the cover of the release below.
