"What did you really do during the war?" We're just one week out from another Oscar contender hitting theaters with the code-cracking war drama The Imitation Game. The film features "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Alan Turing, real-life cryptologist, computer scientist and all around genius who worked his ass off to create a machine that could crack any code the Nazis used during World War II to pass secret messages to their troops. It's bound to be an Academy Award nominated performance, and one final trailer throws around plenty of accolades for the film and performances. Watch!
Here's one final trailer for Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game from YouTube:

The Imitation Game is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) and written by Graham Moore, making his feature writing debut. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal. Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode and Mark Strong also star in the film which The Weinstein Company will release just after Thanksgiving on November 28th.
