The Imitation Game trailer was released a few days ago, I think, but I'm just now breaking its code. If your patience has expired waiting for me to Yes No Maybe So this, that makes you Charles Dance. Nobody wants to be Charles Dance! He will never understand the importance of Yes No Maybe So but you do.
So join me for indecipherable gadgets, Keira's clipped sass, and elaborate hand gestures after the jump

Plink. Plink. Plink. Plink. Plink. What’s that? Oh, just the sound that signals that a serious, dangerous, historical trailer is coming on through (consider it on par with the “brrrrannngghhh” of setting a mood). Plink. Plink. Pllllunk. The Imitation Game is indeed serious, dangerous, and historical — fortunately for all involved, it also looks pretty good. After years of development back and forth (remember when Leonardo DiCaprio was going to star in this?), Graham Moore‘s Black List script about the life of Alan Turing (“the father of computer science”) is finally an actual movie with a bunch of actual stars and enough street cred to push it into “hey, maybe we need to think about awards or whatever” territory. Cool beans, and maybe it will get kids interested in computer science! It’s a win-win! (Although we wonder what kind of kids will be checking out the historical Benedict Cumberbatch film this fall, but »

After helping the Allies win World War II with his cryptology skills, British mathematician Alan Turing fights a much more personal war at home in the first trailer for The Imitation Game. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing, whose work in cracking the German Enigma Code was essential to the Allies' winning World war II. Upon returning home, taking a job at the University of Machester, he was prosecuted by the U.K. government for homosexual acts that were viewed as illegal.

The Weinstein Company has released the first The Imitation Game trailer. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality made him a target of persecution. Judging by this trailer, I'm sure there will be superficial Sherlock comparisons since Turing is brilliant but off-putting to those around him, but I think this looks like a solid World War II drama with some good performances. Hit the jump to check out The Imitation Game trailer. The film opens November 21st, and also stars Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech, and Matthew Beard. Additionally, The Imitation Game will open the 58th BFI London Film Festival on October 8th. [Update: We've added the U.K. trailer after the jump.] Via The Weinstein Company. Via StudioCanal UK.

Considering The Weinstein Company paid a record $7 million to secure the rights earlier this year, it's no surprise that The Imitation Game has gone on to become one of the most highly anticipated films of 2014. The first trailer for the biopic arrived today, fast on the heels of the announcement that film will have its European premiere as the BFI Film Festival opener in October. The big question then becomes is there still a chance the early Oscar contender could hit Tiff in September for its world debut?
The film sees Benedict Cumberbatch star as mathematician Alan Turing, the man behind the cracking of the German's WWII Enigma code and the British team at the top-secret code-breaking centre at Bletchley Park. Though Turing is credited with significantly shortened the war and saving thousands upon thousands of lives across the world, he went on to be persecuted for his homosexuality, rather than lauded for his contributions, »

The first footage has arrived for the potential major awards contender "The Imitation Game" in the form of two quite different trailers. The Weinstein Company and Studio Canal have released a U.S. trailer and a U.K. teaser respectively for Morten Tyldum's film, a biopic of computer genius and WWII hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Rory Kinnear and Allen Leech also star in the story of Turing whose work at Bletchley Park helped cracked the German 'Enigma Code' which was essential to the Allies winning World War II. Rather than celebrated as a hero though, he was chemically castrated by his own Government and ultimately committed suicide.
The UK trailer at the top plays this very much as a straightforward thriller about the code's cracking. The U.S. trailer is a more sentimental and wider ranging piece about the impact »

One film I fully expect to be part of tomorrow's announcement of the Toronto International Film Festival lineup is the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal.

Update: Two very different trailers, one for the U.K. and one for the U.S., have been released, and I’ve included both below.
One of the films I’m most excited to see this fall is The Imitation Game, a dramatic thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a British cryptographer who helped crack Nazi codes during World War II but was later prosecuted for homosexuality, then a crime. The subject matter is obviously fascinating, and Cumberbatch is a highly talented actor, so all signs indicate that The Imitation Game may arrive as one of the year’s best films. Now, a teaser trailer has been revealed by Studiocanal, giving us our first real look at the tense historical thriller.
As the trailer shows, Turing’s main challenge is deciphering the German Enigma code, considered by many to be unbreakable. To this end, he enlists the help of »

As the maths genius-turned-codebreaker, Cumberbatch will find solace and companionship in Keira Knightley’s fellow decrypter Joan Clarke and rub up against a coterie of apparatchiks and powerbrokers, including Charles Dance’s Commander Denniston and Mark Strong's legendary MI6/Sis head Stewart Menzies.“I am thrilled to be returning to London to share The Imitation Game, »

Cumberbatch and Knightley are joined by a fearsomely talented cast including Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear and Charles Dance. The film details the work done by the Bletchley Park code breakers during the War focusing, naturally, on Turing whose pioneering work saved lives and most certainly changed the world. Headhunters director Morten Tyldum is behind the camera for this one.
The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) 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, »

In "The Imitation Game," Cumberbatch portrays the brilliant British mathematician and logician Alan Turing, who's tasked with cracking the Nazi's Enigma Code during WWII. But after helping turn the tide of war with a machine that is widely considered the first computer, the tide turns on Turing, who becomes unjustly persecuted for his homosexuality.
We smell an Oscar nomination.

In Woman in Gold, Holmes, 35, and Reynolds, 37, play a married couple and parents to three young children. While shooting around a reservoir in the San Fernando Valley, the two pushed a baby in a stroller, walking and talking. For the day on set, Holmes looked casual in a tank top, jeans and Converse sneakers. Reynolds was a bit more dressed up with a button-down tucked into khaki pants and brown loafers.
Directed by Simon Curtis from a screenplay by Alexi Katy Campbell, Woman in Gold follows octogenarian Jewish refugee Maria Altman (Helen Mirren), who is fighting to recoup artwork that belonged to her family that was lost during World War II. One of the pieces she’s hoping to retrieve is Austrian »
