'The Imitation Game' Biopic Of Alan Turing, Gay WWII Code Breaker, Gets First Trailer

Check out the first trailer for The Imitation Game, the World War II drama centered around gay code breaker Alan Turing! Turing's code-breaking work played an essential role in the defeat of the Germans in WWII.

Turing is played by Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch and the film is directed by Morten Tyldum. 


The film has received some criticism for allegedly downplaying Turing's sexuality. We guess we'll see how it ultimately turns out on screen.

The film will open the 58th BFI London Film Festival on October 8. 

Are you looking forward to seeing The Imitation Game?
