[Trailer] The Fifth Estate


The Fifth Estate is based on the rise and explosion of WikiLeaks, the website that leaked numerous government files in the name of freedom. Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) plays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds) as Assange’s right-hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, as the website increased its notoriety and infamy as it released secret government logs related to the Iraq War Guantanamo Bay, etc., resulting in Assange finding asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London over fear of being extradited to the United States for outing the sealed files and endangering government agents’ lives.

The Fifth Estate opens on October 11th.
