The mind-bending Marvel film starring Benedict Cumberbatch will be hitting stores at the end of next month.

As previously reported, Disney/Buena Vista is prepping 'Doctor Strange' for Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on February 28.

Best Buy will also be offering both releases in exclusive Steelbook editions.

Doctor Strange, the story of Dr. Stephen Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts, has mesmerized both audiences and critics, pulling in more than $658.3 million at the worldwide box office to date and earning a 90% critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. The biggest single-character introduction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it also carries on Marvel Studios' winning streak as the 14th consecutive MCU film to debut at #1 at the domestic box office.

World-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) is changed forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange -- armed with newly acquired magical powers -- is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.
