Benedict Cumberbatch as the Great Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game” [Trailer]

Alan Turing was in many ways the father of modern computer science. To this day, the standard test for artificial intelligence is the Turing Test. He saved countless lives by cracking the German Enigma Code during WWII. And yet he was persecuted and striped of all recognition for his accomplishments because he was gay (a crime in Great Britain at the time).

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in this new Turning biopic, which appears to focus mainly on Enigma. I hope they do him justice. The cast looks pretty great. Aside from Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game also stars Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, and Charles Dance (A Game of Thrones‘ Tywin Lannister), and is helmed by relatively unknown (here, at least) Norwegian director Morten Tyldum.

Check out the intriguing trailer below…

Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightly Harmonize in Begin Again (Trailer)

John Carney’s follow-up to the fantastic indie-musical Once premeired in Toronto last fall under the name Can a Song Save Your Life? The Weinstein Company, apparently feeling that title was unable to save an already difficult marketing campaign, has changed the name to Begin Again.

Personally I don’t think the new moniker is any better, but no matter. The film it self looks intriguing. Carney continues his infatuation with down-and-out musicians. Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly star, alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Ceelo Green, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in his first movie role.

Watch out for another Best Song contender with this one. Even unheard, the pedigree is too strong to ignore.
