The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game: Benedict Cumberbatch stars in The Imitation Game as the real-life Alan Turing, a brilliant mathematician who was credited with breaking Germany's enigma code during World War II, only to be convicted later of "gross indecency" because he was gay. The movie is expected in theaters next year; the first official image has now been released. [Collider]

Batman vs. Superman: The casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman sparked considerable controversy about her physical suitability for the role. (See the comments on our story.) In her first public comments on the casting, however, Gadot sounds quite good humored about her perceived shortcomings: "Breasts… anyone can buy… and everything is fine. … Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go 'by the book,' it’d be problematic." The movie is flying toward release on July 15, 2015. [The Wrap]

Fleming Trailer: A new trailer for Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond looks good enough for the big screen. Instead, it's a limited-run TV series that will debut on BBC America on January 29, telling the real-life story of Ian Fleming, a British intelligence officer during World War II who became a writer and later created James Bond. Dominic Cooper and Lara Pulver star. [Film School Rejects]

Devil's Due TV Spot: The full-length trailers for horror flick Devil's Due have set up the story of a newly married couple who experience a very troubled pregnancy, but a new TV spot gets right to the point. "The Antichrist is coming!" declares a priest, and a quick shot of a pregnant lady tells us her due date may be diabolical. Allison Miller and Zack Gilford star; the movie opens in theaters on January 17. [20th Century Fox]
