Geek TV reviews, recaps and more!
Benedict Cumberbatch dominated 2013, and 2014 will be no different.
Not only did he bring his beloved Sherlock back from the dead, but he revived classic Star Trek villain Khan, personified Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, motion captured a fire breathing dragon (and the shrouded necromancer), mended broken hearts as Little Charles, and saved the life of a wrong fully enslaved Solomon Northup – all while filming and globe trotting to award shows, press junkets, and making friends and fans everywhere he goes 🙂
Despite having followed his career and professional schedule this year, it still baffles me just how much he was able to accomplish in twelve months.
Here is a look at Benedict’s incredible year!
January 2013 – Benedict finishes recording Series 4 of Cabin Pressure in London. The recording was open to fans, so many of my friends were able to attend.
A few friends in Belgium got to be background extras in scenes with Benedict, Daniel Bruhl and Dan Stevens. Woohoo!
March 2013 – Filming begins on Sherlock Season 3 in Cardiff and London
May 2013 – Star Trek Into Darkness is released in theaters
After years of silence and numerous interviews about his character “John Harrison”, we are delightfully
surprised that Benedict is in fact KHAN!
July 2013 – Pickups are filmed for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in New Zealand
August 2013 – Filming resumes on Sherlock Season 3 in Cardiff and London
September 2013 – Benedict attends the Toronto International Film Festival
Three of his upcoming films are screened:
October 2013 – The Fifth Estate opens in theaters
November 2013 – 12 Years a Slave is released in theaters
December 2013 – The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is released in theaters
January 2014 – August: Osage County opens in theaters
January 2014 – Four of Benedict’s films are nominated for Academy Awards
January 2014 – Sherlock Series 3 premiers on Masterpiece Mystery on PBS
And this list is not even complete! Benedict has surely had a banner year!
