  • 2013 is clearly the year of Benedict Cumberbatch. I swear the guy’s in everything this year–and that’s a good thing.

    • Perhaps you don’t understand: There are 3 branches of Government and the Press in considered the 4th Branch, sometimes called the 4th Estate. The 5th Estate refers to the People: and that means all of us… including YOU.

  • The film looks brilliant. (No I’m no film exec) Its more thrillerish than I expected. Cumberbatch knocks it out of the park. Cumberbatch does a wonderful job of Assange’s odd accent. Cant wait to see it. So I guess the trailer succeeded.

  • As a first trailer its good. Cumberbatch can do no wrong in my eyes and he’s brilliant again in this. Good to see Laura Linney have so much screen time.

  • Benedict Cumberbatch is amazingly incredible, I expected nothing less. The movie itself . . . .not so much my taste. I’ll see it for Cumberbatch, anyway

  • HBO movie. And not one of the good ones. It is also unwise to make a film about a story that is still unfolding.

    • I think the film looks legit but your right, this is is story still unraveling. Maybe thats the point or fun of it, the film ends with him holding up in that embassy. Makes him a martyr or sorts.

    • The Social Network was a great movie and the story of Facebook wasn’t even 50% done being told yet.

      With any luck, they’ll be able to film him getting thrown into the slammer.

  • This so doesn’t suck. Good on you, DreamWorks. Nice oblique nod to Geekileaks in transit as a side benefit without naming names.
