A trailer for the highly anticipated release of The Imitation Game has been released.

Based on the real life story of Alan Turing, who is credited with cracking the German Enigma code, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as Turing and Keira Knightley (Atonement) as close friend and fellow code breaker Joan Clarke.

The Imitation Game portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

Matthew Goode (A Single Man), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Allen Leech (Downton Abbey) and Matthew Beard (An Education) also star in the spy drama.

The Imitation Game is released in UK Cinemas 14th November 2014.
