The first official image from Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) as mathematician and logician Alan Turing, is now available.  The image debuted on the day that Turing received a posthumous pardon from none other than Queen Elizabeth II for his 1952 conviction of homosexuality.  Credited with cracking the German Enigma code during World War II which subsequently shortened the length of the conflict, Turing was then convicted on charges of “gross indecency”, and sentenced to chemical castration.  He committed suicide two years later at the age of 41.

The Imitation Game also stars Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, Matthew GoodeRory KinnearCharles DanceAllen Leech, and Matthew Beard.  Hit the jump to check out the full image.
