If the trailer for the forthcoming thriller The Fifth Estate is any indication, the film could be this fall’s sleeper hit.
Depicting the story of the news-leaking website WikiLeaks, The Fifth Estate stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the website’s founder Julian Assange. Cumberbatch, donning a white wig and false teeth for the role, gives a performance that has even been praised by Assange himself. Rounding out the cast are names like Stanley Tucci, David Thewlis, and the newly crowned Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi.
The Fifth Estate is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this year before hitting theaters October 18.
