Benedict Cumberbatch channels WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange in ‘The Fifth Estate’ trailer
The first trailer for DreamWorks’ upcoming WikiLeaks film The Fifth Estate has just been released, showing Benedict Cumberbatch taking on the mantle of Julian Assange. After seeing a draft script of the production, Assange called the film a “mass propaganda attack against WikiLeaks the organization, and the character of my staff” — criticisms he echoed against the Alex Gibney documentary We Steal Secrets, which was also released this year.
