Trailer: The Imitation Game

Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Alan Turing, the legendary British codebreaker and early computer scientist that helped bring the Nazi war machine to its knees in World War II. He was also gay in a time when it was illegal to be so. Alan Turing was pretty bad ass.

Take a look at the first trailer for The Imitation Game:

Looks fairly interesting, though I don’t like that he’s spending all that time around that lowly Irish driver:

Thomas the driver

Downton Abbey reference… GET IT?

But at least he gets scolded by Tywin Lannister:

Apparently everyone who’s ever set foot in front of a British camera is in this movie. I can’t wait to see if all the Nazis are played by ex-Doctor Whos.

I watch far too much television. The Imitation Game heading to theaters on November 21st.
