He's got some high-profile projects on the way, including Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," HBO miniseries "Parade's End," and a mo-cap turn as villainous dragon Smaug in "The Hobbit," but he'll next be seen on screen in a tiny British indie, D.R. Hood's debut feature "Wreckers." Cumberbatch stars alongside fellow rising star Claire Foy (TV's "Little Dorrit," "Season of the Witch") as a young married couple, David and Dawn, whose lives are turned upside down when David's younger brother Nick (Shaun Evans, "Boy A") returns from the army.
The film bowed at the BFI London Film Festival last month to fairly decent reviews, and it'll hit some UK theaters on December 16th, bowing simultaneously on the excellent Curzon On-Demand service, before a DVD release in February. No word on a U.S. release date yet, but we're sure Cumberbatch's growing stardom will help it cross the Atlantic at some point. Watch the trailer below.
