Julian Assange is stirring a bubbling cauldron of interest that could result in The Fifth Estate‘s coffers running over, with the fair-haired boy of cyberspece delivering the Midas touch for the box office gold. WikiLeaks founder Assange has been giving interviews to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association which will be publishing them this week, ahead of the film’s release, RT Spanish “Behind the News” host Eva Golinger, and weirdly, ABC’s “This Week.”

The first trailer for the much-anticipated Hollywood movie on WikiLeaks, The Fifth Estate, has been unveiled. It shows the WikiLeaks organization going from releasing the “Collateral Murder” video of an Apache helicopter attack that killed two Reuters journalists in Baghdad to releasing military documents on the Afghanistan war to publishing cables that helped fuel uprisings in the Middle East to then-lead member of the organization, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, ultimately growing frustrated with WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange and being forced to part ways.
