Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘The Imitation Game’ trailer

Posted Filed under

The first trailer for The Imitation Game has been unveiled, starring Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch as computing pioneer and German Enigma code-breaker Alan Turning.

Released in UK cinemas on 14 November, The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

The cast also includes Keira Knightley (Atonement), Matthew Goode (A Single Man), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Allen Leech (Downton Abbey) and Matthew Beard (An Education).
