Alan Turing poster for The Imitation Game

The first character poster for The Imitation Game, the upcoming Alan Turing biopic.

It’s Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan gets the honour of the first one that’s released.

It’s a simple poster but it can open up on a couple of levels to show what his genius produced.
The Imitation Game - Benedict Cumberbatch posterThe levels that it opens up are a few.  The main one is the reason for the circles.  They seem to be there to how what he was working on at Bletchley Park, the Bombe code-breaking machine.

The way that they have used the poster’s tag line, Behind every code is an enigma, could indicate the lampboard of the machine that they are trying to break.  The Enigma machine itself.

THE IMITATION GAME is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) 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.
