The Imitation Game

Some great news from Studiocanal has just hit my in-box. That being the trailer for Benedict Cumberbatch’s new film, The Imitation Game.

Two things arrived.  The first was the below image and the second is the first trailer.

The Imitation Game - First look image
Based on the life and work of Alan Turing and his attempt to break into the German Enigma machine’s code.

It does seem to have been filmed at Station X, Bletchley Park. Possibly re-using the Bombe machines that were built for the 2001 film Enigma. Not only that, but they could have also used the Bombe rebuild that is also on the site.

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, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

Breaking into UK cinemas from November 14, 2014.
