Benedict Cumberbatch knew 'The Fifth Estate' was never going to be as successful as 'The Social Network'.
Benedict Cumberbatch knew 'The Fifth Estate' was never going to be a big hit.
The actor's latest movie - in which he stars as controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange - only made in $1.7 million in its opening weekend in the US, the worst figure for an opening weekend this year but he doesn't think it ever set out to be populist.
He told Britain's GQ magazine: ''Well I always thought that Disney and Dreamworks were odd bedfellows for such a specialist topic, really. The parallel is 'The Social Network', but everyone uses Facebook, not everyone is au fait with WikiLeaks. This was never going to be popcorn multiplex film.''

Politically-outspoken rapper M.I.A. had an unusual guest lined-up for her concert in New York on Friday (01Nov13) - she opened the show with a live video transmission from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The Paper Planes hitmaker decided to use her gig at Terminal 5 to give Assange a new platform to air his views on press freedom and online privacy, as he urged the sold-out crowd to fight the "military occupation of cyberspace".
He then recalled lyrics from M.I.A.'s 2010 track The Message to get his point across, reciting: "'iPhone connected to the Internet/ Connected to the Google/ Connected to the government' - it turns out she was right."

Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in new biopic The Fifth Estate has officially been deemed a box office flop after grossing just $1.7 million (£1.13 million) in the U.S., making it the worst major debut of the year so far.
The thriller, directed by Bill Condon, charts the story of the controversial whistleblowing website, but it fell flat when it debuted in the U.K. earlier this month (Oct13), taking a pitiful $753,000 (£502,000) in its opening weekend, and now it's failed to draw audiences on the other side of the Atlantic, too.
The movie, which cost $26 million (£17.3 million) to make for Participant Media and Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Studios, scraped into the U.S. top 10 at eight, despite opening in more than 1,500 theatres nationwide.

The Fifth Estate charts the story of the controversial whistleblowing website, but Assange has branded it "inaccurate" and predicted it would fail to impress viewers - and he has been proved right.
The movie has been left languishing in a lowly sixth position, behind five movies which have been showing for weeks.
