This evening Leicester Square welcomed in the 58th annual London Film Festival with the UK premiere of The Imitation Game.

Morten Tyldum’s film of the life of Alan Turing has done very well for itself on the festival circuit and Benedict Cumberbatch has been singled out for his portrayal of the scientist.

It’s a great way to kick off the festival, the crowds were in fine voice and we spoke to many of the cast and crew as well as LFF luminaries this evening.

Our review of the film can be found here, and you can view the full press conference held earlier today here.

Amon Warmann and Colin Hart were our men on the carpet this evening. We’ll be adding interviews through the evening but we start with our interview with Mr. Cumberbatch.
