Julian Assange Granted Appeal Over Rape Allegation


Julian Assange Benedict Cumberbatch

The Australian journalist, who was portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch in 2013 movie The Fifth Estate, has been living in London's Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 to avoid arrest and extradition to Sweden on rape and sexual assault allegations dating back to 2010.

Assange, who vehemently denies the accusations, lodged an appeal against the arrest warrant, and his claim was initially dismissed by a court in Sweden in November (14), but officials at the country's Supreme Court have now given him the right to move forward with his legal fight.

The newsman claims extradition to Sweden would allow U.S. officials to prosecute him over the leak of thousands of classified American documents.

Benedict Cumberbatch Proud Of The Fifth Estate


Benedict Cumberbatch Julian Assange GQ

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch insists he is proud of his portrayal of Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate despite its poor performance at the box office.

The Star Trek actor portrayed the WikiLeaks founder in the movie about the website's publication of thousands of classified documents, despite warnings from Assange that the film would not perform well.

The movie flopped at the box office and was ranked the biggest misfire of the year by Forbes magazine in November (13), but Cumberbatch insists he is still proud of his performance in the film.

Benedict Cumberbatch Knew Fifth Estate Wouldn't Be Huge


Benedict Cumberbatch Julian Assange

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.''

'The Fifth Estate' has been named 2013's biggest box office flop by Forbes magazine.

The controversial WikiLeaks drama, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange, is considered the least successful major release of the year based on box office receipts in comparison to its budget.

The film grossed $6 million worldwide based on a $28 million budget, it's claimed, which means it saw just returns of just 21 per cent.

M.i.a. Recruits Julian Assange For New York Concert


Julian Assange

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."

The Fifth Estate Flops At U.s. Box Office, Named Worst Major Studio Debut Of The Year


Benedict Cumberbatch Julian Assange

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.

Julian Assange Movie Is Box Office Flop


Julian Assange

A biopic of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has flopped at the U.K. box office, taking a pitiful $753,000 (£502,000) in its opening weekend (11-13Oct13) and failing to even dent the top five.

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.
