Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley Brave A Rainy Red Carpet

Not even a rainstorm can keep Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley from rocking the red carpet.

On Wednesday, the British actors attended "The Imitation Game" premiere at the BFI London Film Festival and although it was pouring buckets, the twosome were total pros and had a good time trying to pose together for photographers despite heavy rain and wind.

Keira, who also battled the elements at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival, took it all in stride and rocked a gold lace tiered Valentino gown that complemented Benedict's classic black suit.

The "Sherlock" star also had a good time trying to prevent himself from getting soaking wet by clutching his pretty co-star under an umbrella without much success.

What has been a definite success is the early raves for their performances in "The Imitation Game," in which Benedict plays World War II code breaker Alan Turing and Keira his colleague, Joan Clarke. The film also premiered at TIFF 2014, and Benny was on hand to promote the film—an appearance which made the Internet have a total meltdown.
