Want to See Benedict Cumberbatch As Julian Assange? Okay!

Oh, man – not sure if you know this, but Benedict Cumberbatch is playing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the upcoming film The Fifth Estate, alongside Daniel Brühl as Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Sounds like a rip-roaring time, eh? I’m sure it’ll be an interesting “thriller” for the critics, but holy hell, it sounds boring.

Laura Linney, Stanley Tucci, Dan Stevens and Alicia Vikander are also in the movie, which opens in October. Will you see this shit show? Did this movie come about a year too late? Can Stanley Tucci save this movie like he’s saved so many others? Does anyone care?
