Don’t worry about those swords, by the way. As the movie’s synopsis makes clear, Jovovich and co will trade their guns for blades before long:
When an unexpected sandstorm transports Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures.
As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.
There are a lot of things to love about Doctor Strange. His costume is amazing. His powers are potentially limitless. And then there’s his headquarters – a mysterious townhouse located at 177A Bleecker Street in New York’s Greenwich Village. A veritable museum of magical treasures, Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum is one of New York’s greatest landmarks in the superhero community.
But just why is Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum located in Greenwich? Many outsiders, from demons to overzealous fans, have speculated about the significance of Strange’s address. While most suspect some dark, magic-related secret, the truth – revealed by Strange himself – is both hilarious and heartwarming.
In the MCU films, Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum is one of three Sanctums in the world – with the other two being in London and Hong Kong. Protected by the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj, Strange learns the Sanctums are strategically positioned to form a protective shield around the Earth, guarding it against other dimensional threats. When the master of the New York Sanctum is killed, Strange inherits the house and becomes its new guardian.
In the comics, however, Doctor Strange acquires the Sanctum through more mundane means – he rented it! Needing a base of operations from which to fulfill his duties as a mystic guardian (and later Sorcerer Supreme), Strange found the three-story townhouse fit his needs well and proceeded to stock it with all of his mystical artifacts and books.
Unfortunately, this sentiment wasn’t shared by a building inspector who appeared in Strange Tales #147 and told Strange that the building would be condemned in six months if Strange didn’t get the place painted and “seal up these moldy trap doors and hidden passageways!” Strange was forced to find ways of making money to pay for the repairs – and at one point even entertained the idea of working as a stage magician!
