Despite eight Oscar nominations, director Morten Tyldum’s film adaptation of Andrew Hodges’ 1983 historical biography, “Alan Turing: The Enigma” — which was re-titled for the screen as The Imitation Game — came away with only the Oscar for writing adaptation.
Best Picture, Best Director and Oscar nominations for acting to Benedict Cumberbatch (Best Actor) and Keira Knightley (Best Supporting Actress) were on the table, but those nominations were largely ignored by the voters. As a result, Anchor Bay Entertainment has finally picked a street date for both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings, which should have been nearer the award’s broadcast, but will instead be on Mar. 31.
The ARR is 123 days ticket sales were a solid $83.9 million.
Bonus features include “special commentary” — whatever the hell that is (can someone with a modicum of competency write an intelligent press release, please) — deleted scenes and a making-of featurette.
