Instead of 'Fifth Estate,' Julian Assange Wants You to Watch...

Dreamworks Dreamworks

Either WikiLeaks' campaign against "The Fifth Estate" has reached the level of being officially hilarious, or we need another cappuccino, stat.

Julian Assange is Basically Trolling Benedict Cumberbatch Through WikiLeaks

Touchstone Touchstone

The saga of Julian Assange and his team at WikiLeaks versus "The Fifth Estate," a movie depicting (at least some version of) their story continues to get thicker and ickier.

In short, Assange believes the film is made of pure freakin' evil and that Dreamworks has some huge secret agenda meant to portray him in a terrible light before the movie-going public.

Even so, Assange apparently kinda likes Benedict Cumberbatch — the dude who got uberfrosted to portray him on-screen. Just not enough to have had a little sit-down with him before the cameras started rolling. Get More »

Wikileaks Leaks 'The Fifth Estate' Script, Natch

Touchstone Touchstone

Techy people getting irked when movies get this detail or that wrong about them is basically the new fangirl flip-out over the slightest quote changes in book-to-screeners. We saw it with Mark Zuckerberg and "The Social Network," Steve Wozniak and "Jobs" and now Julian Assange and his team at WikiLeaks have got a thing or two to say about "The Fifth Estate," the new flick chronicling the saga of Assange and his organization.

Oh, and, in keeping with their info-spreading-like-it-or-not M.O., they've also decided to go ahead and leak the script for the film, too, because obviously. Get More »

'The Fifth Estate' Trailer: Benedict Cumberbatch WikiLeakin' Everywhere

Once upon a time, Benedict Cumberbatch was our little secret. Those of us in America who took a chance with the BBC's "Sherlock" (via Netflix, iTunes or wherever) were rewarded for our efforts with the discovery of a burgeoning star.

Then came a little movie called "Star Trek Into Darkness" and BOOM, everyone wants to come to the CumberParty (yes, "Cumberbitches" is apparently a thing). But good things are meant to shared, right? And even bad things, too? That's certainly the philosophy of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

While Assange continued to hide out in Ecuador's London Embassy, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" director Bill Condon (we still prefer to think of him as the director of "Gods and Monsters" ) has been busy with a biopic of sorts called "The Fifth Estate." Cumberbatch dyed his hair the shade of Slim Shady to play the controversial Assange, whose commitment to freedom of the press and transparency of information has put him at odds with those who like to keep things, you know, secret.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 DVD

Before getting into my take on "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" DVD, let's review what we already know about the film. 1) Bella and Edward totally do it. 2) I thought I saw a nip slip. 3) It is the lowest reviewed "Twilight" film on Rotten Tomatoes.  4) Peter Facinelli awkwardly autographed my copy of the DVD.

Great, now that we're all on the same page, let's get into what I thought about and learned from the bonus features and repeated viewings of movie.

Cast Talks Birth Scene, Weddings and 'Thrusting' at 'Breaking Dawn' Press Day

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

For Twi-hards, the arrival of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" on November 18 is bittersweet, as it's the first part of the final book in the series written by Stephenie Meyer. But it also marks a point at which circumstances change drastically for everyone involved, and the film's cast and director took care to address that at yesterday's "Breaking Dawn" press conference in Los Angeles.

The first three movies in the series have led up to this, the epic wedding between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). After years of longing looks and restrained passion, Bella finally marries her undead beau and they take off to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon. When Bella discovers she is pregnant with a rapidly growing hybrid baby that is killing her, she is whisked home, and the wolves -- including best bud/backburner man Jacob (Taylor Lautner) -- want to retaliate against the Cullens for putting Bella in harm's way.
