First there was “Words with Friends”, then “Chilli Jam Roulette”, and now this. Clearly the theme for this week is “celebrities playing games with one another.”

Oo-er. That sounds a lot more sinister than we meant it to be.

This latest game comes to us straight from the jet-lagged world of Doctor Strange, which is gearing up for its L.A. premiere tonight (October 20). Its star Benedict Cumberbatch had barely touched down on U.S. soil before those Marvel minions sat him down in front of a camera for a game of Jenga with co-star Tilda Swinton.

Yes, it’s a marketing ploy, and yes, it’s one of those lengthy Facebook Live videos, but that doesn’t make it any less wonderful to see the affection these two longtime friends have for one another.

Nor does it make it any less suspenseful, as they carefully remove brick by brick, each of which has a question sent in by a member of the public taped to it.

More importantly though, nor does it help either of them with their jetlag, as the pair struggle to answer sometimes the simplest of questions. For instance, their own names. Enjoy:

Let’s just hope they’ve managed to get a good night’s sleep before tonight’s premiere.

You can watch Benedict and Tilda strut their stuff live outside L.A.’s TCL Chinese Theatre at, when the red carpet coverage starts at 9pm PT / 6pm ET.
