Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange Is Just Plain Creepy

By Sam Gibbs on at

What you're looking at here is the first official still released from the Wikileaks movie, The Fifth Estate, with Sherlock himself portraying the embassy camper. There's quite the resemblance to a younger Assange here. He certainly looks creepy enough.

Apparently no one knows when the Wikileaks film will finally make it to our cinema screens. Maybe it'll get leaked in sections, in with a mass dump of similar movies, all linked to some kind of movie studio conspiracy to fake weapons of mass destruction, or something. Anyway, with Cumberbatch in it, count me in. [Business Wire via TotalFilm]
