While many were all hoping for Benedict Cumberbatch to get some awards recognition for playing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, things unfortunately fell through when the film received dismal reviews once it was released.
That being said though, Cumberbatch might have another chance at redeeming himself in the upcoming film The Imitation Game, which has the British actor taking on the role of mathematician Alan Turing as he tries to solve super-secret Nazi codes during the Second World War.
In this thrilling and emotional drama, the movie will document Turing’s life from his hard work cracking Nazi’s Enigma code to his prosecution after the war for being a homosexual. Directed by Morten Tyldum, the film also stars several familiar British faces including Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode and Charles Dance, who we all know as the power-hungry Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones.
The Imitation Game is set to release on November 21.
Awards season, get ready!
