Oh wow OK let’s please signal boost this because some recent ones have been GIFs of horror and so on, and that makes Tumblr incredibly unsafe for a good amount of people. S:
Once in a while there is in film or television or music what has become known in technology as a Black Swan. Something that defies all expectations at the same time meeting all the expectations you never actually knew you had. And that’s a good enough definition for the…
Benedict Cumberbatch’s intro to Oz Comic Con 2014 (HD)
As complete a summary as I can be bothered with of Benedict Cumberbatch at the Oz Comic Con Sydney event (Sunday April 13th, 2014). Some parts have been paraphrased and others left out completely, so don’t take it as gospel, more as generally what went down.
Q&A: BC appears on stage holding his iPhone up to the microphone and dancing around. Crowd goes wild.
"Now that… is a legal bit of dancing that you’ve just heard [sic]". Which is his way of bringing up the fact that he’s actually quite annoyed (I think) over the organisers’ showing of the video intercutting Tom Hiddleston’s dancing with his own "Thriller" moves. He explains the background, which is that footage was essentially hacked from Olivia’s page, at which people laugh and cheer, to which he’s all "no, boo, boo".
1. How did he prepare to play James in Third Star? Aww. He talked to the UK Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer society, since it was what James suffered from, he met a few people who had cancer at the time, he talked to Vaughn (the screenwriter) who based some of it on a friend of his. He couldn’t do anything with his hair because he was about to play Sherlock! So he lost a lot of weight, went swimming in the ocean, ran around a lot, ate less - at this point someone brings him a glass of wine, which gets a cheer - for at least two weeks. Says nice things about JJ (yay!), that they all influenced the film because Hattie was a first-time director, he tried to help and guide her with his own work, and JJ especially helped her and he (JJ) would make a good director. Amazing story, amazing setting.
Benedict Cumberbatch - Oz Comic Con (via cumberbitchen)
"… for no one else. That’s it. And I understand that people are interested. And as you know, my problem is that I probably overshare a bit too much. So, the media loves playing with that. The media loves to sort of throw things back at me or say that I said things that weren’t said in anything other than jest, as like a statement of fact. And those are weird things. The lack of control or perception and I can’t be in a room and make a joke like I can with nearly a thousand of you and I will be understood as well as I can by you, as I can by one journalist and one editor who goes ‘ah that’s the quote. put that up. and then we have something we can race him on’.(?) And that’s a bit … that just gets boring. But it’s part of a very privileged existence, so I wear it lightly now. I used to go get very cut up (?) about it but I couldn’t care less anymore. … And the amount of cut-and-paste-jobs that are done. You all know it as well. You can spot it. It is very easy to see if someone’s actually been in a room with me or if someone has just gone ‘ah we use that clipping and that clipping and that quote and and ooh he did that - we’ll use that!’ … and they get paid to do that, which is slightly a gruelling thing. […].”
Cumbercupcake: Me and B!! Awww
I really had BRILLIANT time in Australia and Oz Comic Con. Not only because I met B and he recognized my work but also I felt really blessed to see his kindness, generosity, patience, cheekiness and humor with my own eyes. Also i had great time meeting lots of lovely fellow cumbercollective. Thanks again B, you will continue to inspire me in many ways, love you, never change!!

friendly reminder that there’s a cut scene in Thor that while the Destroyer is blowing shit up, Darcy runs into the pet store to save all the animals and give them to people leaving the town
as things are being set on fire around her, she talks to the dog, telling him I won’t let the big scary monster step on you, and names it Baker
Why was this cut? I need that scene in the film!
