PanARMENIAN.Net - The Weinstein Co. has dated three of its upcoming films for release in 2014: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Benedict Cumberbatch starrer The Imitation Game and Tim Burton's Big Eyes, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, will have a limited release on Sept. 26.

The romantic drama, written and directed by Ned Benson, is a film split into two parts. It played at the Toronto Film Festival and will play in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes. Once happily married, Conor (McAvoy) and Eleanor (Chastain), suddenly find themselves as strangers longing to understand each other in the wake of tragedy.

The film opens the same weekend as wide releases The Equalizer, animated pic The Boxtrolls and romantic comedy Laggies.

The Imitation Game, starring Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, will hit theaters in limited release on Nov. 21.

Directed by Morten Tyldum, the film follows the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist Turing, who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. The Weinstein Co. bought the film at the Berlin market for $7 million with an eye toward an awards push.

Also starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode, the film opens the same weekend as wide releases The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and sports drama McFarland.

Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, will open on Dec. 25.

The film is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early '60s … or was he? Big Eyes centers on Keane's wife, Margaret, who was the actual artist behind the works for which her husband took credit.

The Christmas holiday weekend will also see the release of musical Into the Woods, Angelina Jolie’s directorial project Unbroken, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and an untitled Cameron Crowe film.
