The Fifth Estate – trailer

TheFifthEstate

The Fifth Estate tells the recent story of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg, and what happened when they teamed up to become “underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful” – whistle-blowers leaking covert data and exposing the dark recesses of government secrets and global corporate crimes.

The film is released in the UK on the 11th October (a week later in the US) and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange and Daniel Bruhl (who can currently be seen playing Niki Lauda in Ron Howard‘s Rush) as Domscheit-Berg. There’s also a fine looking support cast that includes Stanley Tucci, David Thewlis, Laura Linney and (new Dr Who) Peter Capaldi.
