Forbes blows the proverbial cartoon trombone effect for the ill-fated Wikileaks movie.
It's been a slippery slope for Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate: first Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denounced the movie, then critics refused to be convinced, it disappointed at the box office and now it has been slapped with a great big 'flop of the year' sticker, courtesy of Forbes.
Sadly, Even Cumberbatch Couldn't Rescue 'The Fifth Estate.'
The topical movie, covering the rise of news-leaking website Wikileaks and set in a thriller format, initially seemed to be a shoo-in for success with actor-of-the-moment Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange and the Oscar-winning Condon at the helm.

The creepy Twilight doll - also known as Chuckesmee - is finally revealed.
The creepy Twilight doll known only as Chuckesmee was supposed to serve as the love child of Bella and Edward in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the final chapter in the vampire franchise.
Fans have speculated over the doll for months, which was first mentioned by cast-members around the time Breaking Dawn came out though never made it into the final cut of the film - which is jyst as well, because it's without a doubt the most terrifying thing we've ever seen.
Now, thanks to special feature from the Twilight Blu-Ray/DVD collection that's out this week, Chuckesmee is finally unleashed on the innocent public. Named after a combination of evil doll Chucky and Renesmee Cullen, the doll was said to have genuinely terrified cast-members and director Bill Condon called it "a giant misfire" and "a horror show," instead casting Mackenzie Foy to play the real life daughter of Edward and Bella.

'The Fifth Estate' stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Laura Linney, Daniel Bruhl and Stanley Tucci along with director Bill Condon talk about the upcoming movie in short featurette.

The veteran actor will portray one of literature's most revered characters .
It’s official, screen legend Ian McKellen has signed on to play a retired Sherlock Holmes in Bill Condon's A Slight Trick of the Mind. The movie is based on a novel of the same name by Mitch Cullin while the screenplay is being adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher. Anne Carey will produce.
The plot: a retired Holmes racks his brain for the answers to an unsolved case 50 years prior. His brilliant yet fading mind can’t handle the lack of closure, so, stripped of his once-impenetrable logic, he sets out on his hardest case yet.
It’s not often you can say this about a role – just ask the fans of 50 Shades of Grey – but McKellen is literally perfect to fill this role. Credits for that sentence go to the Oxford online dictionary for changing the meaning of “literally.” But, jokes aside, we can’t think of a better man to take on the part.
When Julian Assange began to leak damaging governmental information online through WikiLeaks, he was praised as a hero by many for finally showing the truth about unethical military operations such as the famous 'collateral murder' video showing an AH-64 Apache taking aim at some unarmed Iraqi journalists. One supporter, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, became good friends with Julian and eventually worked with him in his truth and justice exploits. However, when hundreds of names of government informers were under threat of being leaked, the pair were at a conflict as Daniel understood that many people's lives were at risk if the information got out while Julian remained determined to enlighten the public.

Oliver Stone has thrown support behind Julian Assange's cause.
Never far from controversy, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone has conveniently attacked two forthcoming movies about Julian Assange after meeting the Wikileaks founder at the Ecudorian embassy in London last week. Stone tweeted a picture of himself with the political activist during the visit, saying, "A sad occasion in that Julian could not follow me out the door. He lives in a tiny room with great modesty and discipline."
Assange has publically slammed two forthcoming movies set to be released about Wikileaks - Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets and Bill Condon's drama The Fifth Estate - and Stone tweeted of his dismay at the movies also. "Strong mind, no sun, friends who visit, work to be done, one documentary coming out from Alex Gibney that is not expected to be kind. Another film from Dreamworks which is also going to be unfriendly . I don't think most people in the US realise how important Wikileaks is and why Julian's case needs support." It's difficult to believe both movies will be biting hatchet jobs of Assange's character and Wikileaks. Gibney is an Oscar-winning documentarian, while the second is a big-budget Hollywood movie from the director of Twilight. Besides, for all its benefits, Wikileaks and Assange in particular have moral questions to answer. He is also wanted for alleged sexual offenses in Sweden. "Julian Assange did much for free speech and is now being victimised by the abusers of that concept," added Stone.
The Fifth Estate stars Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange, alongside a pretty impressive supporting cast that includes Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie and Peter Capaldi. It is due for release in the US in November - Oscar bait, in other words. Alex Gibney's documents debuted at Sundance in January and hits theaters in the U.S on May 24, 2013.

It looks as though producers working on the forthcoming WikiLeaks movie The Fifth Estate have well and truly nailed the casting process. Based on the book by Guardian writers David Leigh and Luke Harding, the movie is now officially in production, and the first on-set photograph shows Benedict Cumberbatch in full garb as the whistleblowing anti-hero Julian Assange. The Sherlock stars looks pretty impressive with dyed white-blond hair and the Swede's signature green parka.
Inglorious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl also looks the part as Assange's confidant Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The movie, written by The West Wing's Josh Singer, began principal photography at an undisclosed location this week. It focuses on the early dates of the non-profit site that became notorious for leaking secret information and military news leaks. In November 2010, Assange and WikiLeaks collaborated with major global media organisations to release U.S. State department "cables." The movie is said to focus on the website's early days, and - according to the Guardian - is tipped as a "celluloid document of Assange's meteoric rise into the public consciousness."
