Benedict Cumberbatch Announces Avengers: Infinity War Premiere Contest


What sounds better than attending the world premiere for Avengers: Infinity War in Los Angeles? How about attending the world premiere for Avengers: Infinity War in Los Angeles AND having tea with one of its biggest stars, Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch!

Well, that’s now on the cards for two lucky people, as the actor has announced that he’s teaming up with Omaze to host a competition to raise money for the GEANCO charity. For more info, we’ll hand you over to the man himself, who explains everything you need to know in this hilarious video:

In short, the more donations you make to GEANCO, the more you increase your chances of winning the grand prize. That consists of a pair of tickets to attend the premiere of, let’s face it, the biggest movie event of the year. The chosen two will then be put up at a 4 star hotel and will get the chance to have tea with Benedict Cumberbatch, which Omaze describes as spending “quality time” with the actor, including the chance to “take selfies.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the charity, this is how Omaze describes GEANCO:

“GEANCO’s mission is to save and transform lives in Africa by focusing on the health and education of those in Nigeria. Your donations will help provide life-changing scholarships to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality, orthopedic surgeries to those in desperate need, and maternal and infant health programs.”

Avengers: Infinity War will mark Cumberbatch’s third appearance in the MCU to date. He, of course, debuted back in 2016 in Doctor Strange, before turning up for a memorable cameo opposite Thor and Loki in last year’s Thor: RagnarokInfinity War is the first time he will interact with the Avengers at large, though, and the trailers so far have teased some fun moments between him, Tony Stark and Peter Parker, which we can’t wait to see.

For those of us who don’t manage to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Avengers: Infinity War lands in theaters on May 4th.
