Benedict Cumberbatch's Face Stars in New 'The Imitation Game' Poster

Oh, hello there, B.C.

Benedict Cumberbatch's piercing blue-green eyes take center stage for the new poster of The Imitation Game, which was just released via The Telegraph.

The poster received The Social Network treatment, following a common trend in movie posters in which text is written on top of an actor's face. Who can blame the film though, really? If you have a star like Cumberbatch as your lead, why wouldn't you use those cheekbones to your full advantage?
