Turing’s Code-Breaking Machine Wasn’t Really Named ‘Christopher’

One of the more touching things in Imitation Game is the moment when Turing tells Joan Clarke that he’s named the computer he’s working on “Christopher” (after Turing’s first love—Joan doesn’t know that part, though). The real machine was called the Bombe (or “Victory”). “That was my invention,” Moore says. The idea is based on the belief held by Turing’s biographer Hodges and many other historians that Turing’s fascination with computers and artificial intelligence came from their friendship, which ended early when Morcom died at age 18 from tuberculosis. “Turing wrote extensively about whether or not this technology could be used to keep a person’s mind alive,” Moore says “I think his entire lifelong pursuit of artificial intelligence was all about bringing Christopher back. Naming the machine Christopher was a dramatic way for us to show that very real lifelong obsession.”

SCREENWRITER GRAHAM MOORE is a self-described Alan Turing obsessive: He went to space camp andcomputer programming camp as a teenager, so the famed mathematician loomed large, “like a campfire legend or something.” Turing’s life ultimately proved so inspirational to Moore that bringing his story to the big screen became a life goal.

“Once I became a writer I would go to my agents once a year and say, ‘Hey, there’s this movie I really want to write about a gay English mathematician who commits suicide after the Second World War,'” Moore remembers. “And they were like, ‘That’s a big Hollywood movie!’ … No, they did not say that at all. They were like, ‘Please don’t ever write that; no one will ever finance that movie.'”

LOS ANGELES — Heading into the all-important summer moviegoing season, two converging box-office trends are startling studios: Women are driving ticket sales to a degree rarely, if ever, seen before, while young men — long Hollywood’s most coveted audience — are relatively AWOL.

With the release of “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” over the weekend, women have delivered the three biggest live-action openings of the year. The audience for “Insurgent,” which took in an estimated $54 million from Friday to Sunday, was 60 percent female. The opening-weekend crowd for “Fifty Shades of Grey” was 67 percent female, and women made up 66 percent of the audience for “Cinderella.”
