Benedict Cumberbatch is taking on the Nazis as a Second World War codebreaker in upcoming movie The Imitation Game.

And while we have to wait a while to see the Sherlock star in cinemas (the movie isn't out until November) we've managed to find a couple of images from the film to tide you over until then, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Cumberbatch is playing the lead in the movie about the life and career of scientist Alan Turing who became famous for breaking Enigma codes during the Second World War, only to then be criminally prosecuted for his homosexuality.

The 37-year-old British star isn't the only A-lister to lend his acting talents to the flick. A few of Cumberbatch's co-stars – Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode and Downton Abbey's Allen Leech – can be seen here, too.

Game of Thrones star Charles Dance will also appear in the film – directed by Morten Tyldum – alongside Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Tuppence Middleton and Tom Goodman-Hill. 

The Imitation Game will be in UK cinemas 14 November
