The Imitation Game and Focus Trailers
After taking home the highly coveted Audience Award from the Toronto International Film Festival, Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game instantly became an early front-runner in the Best Picture race. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as English mathematician Alan Turing who built a machine that helped crack the Nazi's Enigma code and change the course of World War II. As a Centerpiece selection at this year's Philadelphia Film Festival later this month, The Imitation Game hits theatres everywhere in late-November.
In 2015, directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa return to the con-man comedy genre with Focus. After a successful indie debut with I Love You Phillip Morris, the pair of filmmakers hit it big with 2011's beloved comedy, Crazy, Stupid, Love. Their upcoming release finds Will Smith as a brilliant con artist who takes a beautiful seductress (The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie) under his wing. Things really get difficult, however, once these two untrustworthy criminals get romantically involved. Focus finds its way to the big screen in late February, 2015.
