Late last week we saw the latest poster for The Imitation Game.
Whist having a drink with an old friend we were talking about the film and the new poster and the way that he thought that Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t look anything like the person he was playing.
As he was annoyed with the poster, I decided to find an images of Turing and make a more historically accurate version of the poster using the man himself.
The stars of the film have been changed to the people that our two principle actors are playing. Alan Turing and his colleague, girlfriend and fiancée Joan Clarke.
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.
