The newly released poster for Dreamworks Pictures' "The Fifth Estate" gives us the latest look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Australian activist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The tagline? "You can't expose the world's secrets without exposing your own." Dun, dun dun!

Directed by Bill Condon ("Twilight: Breaking Dawn," "Dreamgirls"), "The Fifth Estate" focuses on the story of Assange, and how his website, Wikileaks launched the high-stakes game of classified information leaks into the 21st century. 

The cast list for the film also features Daniel Brühl ("Inglorious Basterds"),  Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey"),  Anthony Mackie ("The Hurt Locker"), Laura Linney, Peter Capaldi and Stanley Tucci.
