She told Uproxx: ''I was so genuinely, heavily entrenched in that, and not in a way that felt like an obligation. Even though after the first one, which stood alone, it lasted a long time. It's hard to speak to a five-year period in a few sentences, but I loved doing it.

'The Fifth Estate' Is Stinker Of The Year In Movie Flop List [Trailer]


Benedict Cumberbatch Sylvester Stallone Bill Condon

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.

The Fifth Estate
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.

Nikki Reed Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart Bill Condon

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.
