To celebrate the release of Marvel's Doctor Strange on DVD and Blu-ray today, we have a new VFX reel taking us inside the film's epic third act battle, which was done in reverse courtesy of the Infinity Stone Eye of Agamotto.

Titled "Behind the Magic: Creating the Time Warp in Doctor Strange," the video was released by Industrial Light & Magic, the awesome special effects company behind the stunning visuals for the Sorcerer Supreme's first outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And what an outing it was!

The scene takes place in the streets of Hong Kong, when Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) went to help Wong (Benedict Wong) protect the Hong Kong Sanctum against Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) and his Zealots.

For me, it was one of the movie's most impressive visual feats, alongside the mind-bending chase scene in the Mirror Dimension (you know, the one that took place in New York City? You guys can see a VFX reel for that one right here) and Stephen Strange's visit to the Dark Dimension where he goes to bargain with Dormammu.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think. Are you ready to own Doctor Strange?
