See Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing in the Imitation Game trailer
Fans of Benedict Cumberbatch will see him take on a new role in an upcoming film from Studio Canal called the ‘Imitation Game’. In the film Cumberbatch will play Alan Turing, a man that pioneered the Allied efforts in cracking German code during WWII.
Cumberbatch will play English mathematician and logician, Alan Turing, working against the German “Enigma” code during World War II. Although his character was revered for his work in the industry, he worked in constant fear of being outed, as homosexual acts were outlawed at the time. The film was directed by director Morten Tyldum, based on the screenplay written by Graham Moore.
Joining Benedict Cumberbatch on screen are Keira Knightley and Mark Strong. The drama-thriller is scheduled to premiere on November 21, 2014.
