I posted the first trailer for The Imitation Game back in July, and a lot has happened since then. Although it’s still early days, it looks like The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything will be showing up on a lot of 2014 Best Picture lists. In addition, Benedict Cumberbatch’s portayal of Alan Turing and Eddie Redmayne’s performance as Stephen Hawking seem to have given them locks on this year’s Best Actor nominations. (At this point, Redmayne’s the man to beat for the Oscar).
I don’t give much credence to the Oscars or the even sillier Golden Globes, but it’s pleasant to see the great work of two of my favourite actors acknowledged.
The Imitation Game will be released on 21 November 2014.
