Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has taken to Twitter to explain the movie's PG-13 rating. Have a look:

If the wording happens to turn your world upside down, your not the only one as footage from the Doctor Strange Comic-Con trailer revealed something similar.

Here's what the tweet actually says:

"Rated P-13 For Kaleidoscopic Galactic Intensity And Other-Dimensional Psychotropic Violence."

Speaking of dimensions, Derrickson also offered that Doctor Strange is introducing the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse.

"Doctor Strange" has a November 4, 2016 release starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.


Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
