Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #130. Morton Tyldum’s The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game

Director: Morten Tyldum
Writer: Graham Moore
Producers: Nora Grossman, Ido Ostrowsky, Teddy Schwarzman
U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong

This is Norwegian director Morten Tyldum’s highly anticipated follow-up to his international breakout success, 2011’s Headhunters. We’re happy to see him back with another dose of twisty suspense. If the film sounds familiar it’s because there was a 2001 film called Enigma, directed by Michael Apted that was, very loosely, based on the same mathematician. We’re certain Tyldum’s will usurp a superior status, especially considering the numbingly busy Benedict Cumberbatch is headlining.

Gist: English mathematician and logician, Alan Turing, helps crack the Enigma code during World War II.

Release Date: The Weinstein Co. were so confident about the title that they just grabbed it for a cool 7 million. Expect a nice, fat premiere slot at Toronto with perhaps Venice as a competitive possibility.
