Here we have the trailer for The Fifth Estate. The films stars the incredible Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness), Laura Linney (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Truman Show) and Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones, Captain America: The First Avenger). The film is about the notorious founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, and is directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2).
This certainly looks interesting. While I am not a fan of Laura Linney, I am a ginormous fan of Benedict Cumberbatch and will watch him in whatever he’s in. If he did a one man show dressed as a pink unicorn, I would watch it. Bill Condon’s track record is a bit hit and miss, though. While Gods and Monsters was brilliant, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 was a travesty against filmed media. I don’t place all the blame for that on him, though. The producers and the studio and the source material were all handicaps.
Either way, have a look at the trailer here. Could this be this years The Social Network? Only time will tell, but the trailer has me quite intrigued . . .
