Watch: New Trailer For 'The Imitation Game,' Plus 15-Minute Google Talk, Clip & TV Spot

How you do make a movie about a super genius mathematician interesting? Put Benedict Cumberbatch in it. Hell, we'd listen to the actor's beautifully, bass-y voice read mattress tags, but thankfully he's being put to better use than that in "The Imitation Game." And a new trailer for the World War II set drama is here. Co-starring Keira Knightley and a bunch of familiar British faces (such as Charles Dance, Mark Strong, and Matthew Goode), the film tells the true story of Alan Turing, the man who cracked Germany's Enigma code during the Second World War, but found his personal life as a homosexual put under scrutiny, a pain doubled by the fact he was also sworn to secrecy about his groundbreaking wartime work. It's a powerful story, and opening in the U.K. today there's a good batch of promo material for the movie. The most significant is a 15-minute Google Talk,

Oscar Season Preview

Now that summer movie season is over, it’s Oscar season. During winter and fall many Oscar-hopeful movies are released. This is our overview of what you can expect leading up to the 2015 Oscars.

The first is in reference to the Engima machine, the legendary secret code the Nazis used during World War II, which was solved by a secret UK military division lead by Turing. The second is Turing himself. Known for his advancements in computer theory (look up Turing Machines), BBC News noted that Winston Churchill once referred to Turing as having made "the single biggest contribution to Allied victory in the war against Nazi Germany." Somehow he became a historical footnote until finally getting proper credit for his WWII accomplishments in the 1990s. Eventually he was pardoned for a "gross indecency" charge (which destroyed his life) by the Queen of England in 2013.
