New trailer arrives for The Imitation Game Simon Fitzjohn October 2, 2014 Latest News and Videos 1660 We’re just a week away now from The Imitation Game kicking off this year’s London Film Festival, with the film getting its European premiere after wowing at the Toronto Film Festival recently. In case you’re in the dark about this one, the official synposis is as follows: 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. To mark the occasion, a new UK trailer has surfaced, pushing the film ahead of its national release. Directed by Morten Tyldum and starring the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, the film hits cinemas for real on November 14.
