DreamWorks has released the first poster and a few new images from director Bill Condon’s (Kinsey) upcoming WikiLeaks film The Fifth Estate.  The pic centers on the relationship between Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) and Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch), as the story follows the early days of WikiLeaks, culminating in the release of a series of controversial and history changing information leaks.  Assange/WikiLeaks is certainly timely subject matter and Condon has assembled an impeccable cast, so The Fifth Estate enters the fall fold as a potential awards contender.  Moreover, the pic will be opening the Toronto International Film Festival, where it will hold its world premiere.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Fifth Estate:

Triggering our age of high-stakes secrecy, explosive news leaks and the trafficking of classified information, WikiLeaks forever changed the game. Now, in a dramatic thriller based on real events, “The Fifth Estate” reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization. The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and a defining question of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society—and what are the costs of exposing them?”

    Can’t wait to see it just for Cumberbatch, hopefully he owns it and gets a Best Actor nod.

    Can’t wait to see Peter in action as the Doctor this Xmas, who is with me?

      I’m certainly with you. I honestly hope Matt Smith regenerates at the end of the 50th so I won’t have to wait until next summer to see a lot of Peter.

    Capaldi looks like older version of the 10th Doctor to me on this photos!

    The poster’s great, I just hope they don’t deify the guy, because regardless of whether or not you support his politics, he seems like a complete and utter egomaniac. There was also that bizzare exchange with Ian Hislop where he accused Hislop of being Jewish, despite him, well, not being Jewish.
