With a November 21st US release date already in place, StudioCanal have now announced that ‘The Imitation Game’ has been penciled in for a November 14th bow in the UK. Starring the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard, ‘The Imitation Game’ offers a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing.
The pioneer of modern-day computing, Alan Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a “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. Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) is directing from a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the book “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges.
Following a number of reports saying he was the frontrunner to direct ‘Star Trek 3,’ sources have reportedly told Variety that Skydance and Paramount have tapped Roberto Orci to direct ‘Star Trek 3.’ Just last month it was reported that Orci, who’s already been set to pen ‘Star Trek 3′ along with Patrick McKay and John D. Payne, has been heavily lobbying to direct the production. If this report is on the money, ‘Star Trek 3′ would mark his directorial debut. Orci previously co-wrote both ‘Star Trek’ films and the tie-in video game.

Ridley Scott is said to be in negotiations to direct 20th Century Fox’s ‘The Martian,’ a much buzzed about project that Drew Goddard recently pulled out of due to his commitments with his Spider-Man spinoff ‘The Sinister Six’ and ‘Daredevil’ series. Based on the e-book by Andy Weir and adapted by Goddard, ‘The Martian’ follows an astronaut (Matt Damon) who becomes stranded on Mars and must figure out how to survive long enough to return to Earth. The film is being described as a cross between ‘Apollo 13′ and ‘Cast Away.’

From Universal Pictures comes this first trailer and poster for Lone Sherfig’s (An Education) ‘The Riot Club,’ the film adaptation of Laura Wade’s play ‘Posh.’ The play, which helped launched the careers of Kit Harington, Joshua McGuire, Tom Milson and David Dawson, centers around the fictional Riot Club – an elite Oxbridge dining society – which meets regularly in the a private dining room of a pub. ‘Posh’ is scripted by Wade, adapted from her own play, which opened during the 2010 General Election, where audiences and critics weren’t shy in drawing comparisons between the fictional Riot Club and the Bullingdon Club, of which Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson were members.
In this movie adaptation, the boys in penguin suits include Max Irons and Sam Claflin, as Miles and Alistair, first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club. During the course of a night at the Bull’s Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path.
