StudioCanal have released the first trailer for Morten Tyldum’s biopic of pioneering British computer scientist Alan Turing. Turing (Played by Benedict Cumberbatch) was a key figure in cracking the Nazis’ Enigma code and helped the Allies win World War II. In gratitude, the British Government prosecuted Turing for homosexuality in 1952.
It looks like Cumberbatch’s Turing has all the natural charm and charisma as Cumberbatch’s Sherlock. And Allen Leech gets a well-deserved break from pig-fretting on Downton Abbey.
Release Date: 14th November (UK)
