Sherlock and Star Trek Into Darkness villain Benedict Cumberbatch goes blond as controversial WikLeaks founder Julian Assange in the new thriller The Fifth Estate, in theaters October 11, and we have a first look at the trailer!
Kind of like The Social Network meets All the President's Men, The Fifth Estate traces the early days of the brains behind WikiLeaks.org, the whistleblowing website that found overnight success – and infamy – with the release of a series of controversial, history-changing and classified information leaks.
Also starring Laura Linney, Daniel Bruhl, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten, The Fifth Estate is directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and is based on Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website and WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy.
