In the title compound, C22H17BrN2O 2, the benzimidazole ring system is essentially planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.017 (1) Å, and forms dihedral angles of 27.79 (6) and 64.43 (6)°with the phenyl and bromo-substituted benzene rings, respectively. In the crystal, molecules are linked into one-dimensional chains along the a axis by weak C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds. Weak intermolecular C - H⋯π interactions are also present.
