See Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate

The first shot of Benedict Cumberbatch as notorious WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been released (by EW), and it is the bleached nightmare we all anticipated.


The Fifth Estate, directed by Bill Condon and scripted by Josh Singer, reportedly details Assange’s rise to infamy through the eyes of his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl).

It also stars Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, Peter Capalid, and David Thewlis.

The picture hits U.S. cinemas in November 15. There is no local release date set at this time.
