Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing

I am excited about this one !!

A trailer has been released for
The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing - English mathematician and logician, the father of modern day computing, and the man who cracked the German Enigma code during the war.

Norwegian director Morten Tyldum, known for the crime thriller Headhunters, presents this true story of Turing and his team. In a race against time they work at Britain's top-secret code breaking centre during World War II to break the German Enigma Code. The film spans Turing's life from his unhappy teenage years at boarding school to the triumph of his secret wartime work, to his post-war life where he was the victim of persecution for a now outdated criminal offence.

'The Imitation Game' will be released in New Zealand cinemas on Thursday, January 8th, 2015.

In the meantime check out these books we have on Alan Turing, he was a very interesting man!
