Catch up with the last seven days in the world of film
The big story
We don't tend to mess around with "first pictures" here at the Guardian: we're made of sterner stuff. No, we wait for the trailers. But who could resist a picture of old Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, dolled up in greasy Andy Warhol wig as everyone's favourite sticker-to-the-man, Julian Assange.
We ought to acknowledge at the outset that the movie it's publicising, The Fifth Estate, is partly based on a book by Guardian writers David Leigh and Luke Harding, WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy, as well as Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website, by Assange's former right-hand man Daniel Domscheit-Berg.
Assange himself quickly launched an assault on the film during an address to the Oxford Union; he, of course, is still holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy. »
