Assange Has to Watch His Back in New Fifth Estate Clip

The WikiLeaks drama, The Fifth Estate starring Benedict Cumberbatch is set to open in just over a month. 

On Wednesday Entertainment Weekly released a new clip from the highly anticipated film that made its debut a week ago at the Toronto International Film Festival. 

The clip features Cumberbatch as Julian Assange and David Thewlis (Harry Potter) as a journalist for The Guardian - Nick Davies. 

At this point in the film Assange is holding on to some MAJOR government documents regarding the war. He is trying to gain a partner in the media to help him analyse the material. 

As alluded to in the clip Assange has noted that people are after him, Davies doesn’t believe it until he sees it for himself.

I had the privilege of watching The Fifth Estate at its premiere in Toronto, you can check out the review previously written for PopWrapped here.

Be sure to look out for The Fifth Estate and Benedict Cumberbatch’s flawless performance on October 11 in the UK, and October 18 in the US.
