'The Imitation Game' Trailer Offers A Look At Benedict Cumberbatch's 2014 Oscar Bid

The Weinstein Company

Oscar, meet Benedict Cumberbatch; Benedict Cumberbatch, meet Oscar. In "The Imitation Game," the "Sherlock" actor stars as Alan Turing, the brilliant mathematician and computer scientist responsible for cracking the code that helped the Allied forces topple Nazi Germany in World War II.

The first trailer is now online, and it has "awards season" written all over it, even before considering the fact that it's a Weinstein Company film acquired from a Black List script for a record $7 million. Co-starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode, "The Imitation Game" opens Nov. 21.
