FIRST LOOK – The Trailer for the ‘Wikileaks’ Movie ‘The Fifth Estate’ – VIDEO

The Fifth Estate

The trailer for The Fifth Estate, the movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, has been released.

Assange has gone on record calling the film “a propaganda attack on Wikileaks”.

The Fifth Estate Director Bill Condon responds to Assange’s claims:

He had a tremendous falling-out with Daniel, and they have a real disagreement about events as they occur. Our movie is also based on a book by a Guardian reporter, and Assange took exception to that, too. But you know, he took exception to his own autobiography, which was ghostwritten by a wonderful author — he wouldn’t allow the release of it because it had things that were mildly critical of him. So he’s somebody who doesn’t really take well to presenting any other side
