Julian Assange to the Hollywood Foreign Press: “The Fifth Estate’ Is Going to Fail’ (Exclusive)
Also read: Benedict Cumberbatch on Julian Assanges Cautionary Email: It Galvanized Me The unusual conversation with members of the HFPA, which typically meets with stars looking to hype their new movies, came as part of a series of roundtables promoted by new president Theo Kingma, who has said he wants to increase the journalistic credibility of the much-maligned organization of Hollywood-based reporters for foreign newspapers, magazines and websites. TheWrap obtained a transcript of the conversation, which Assange began by calling the HFPAs creation of the Golden Globes in the early 1940s basically a hack into the studio system and an amazing, successful coup in getting stars and moviemakers to address the foreign press. Also read: Benedict Cumberbatch Reveals All on Reddit: 10 Things We Learned About the Sherlock Star Some of the conversation dealt with The Fifth Estate, in which Benedict Cumberbatch plays Assange and rather than go into detail about why he thinks the film is inaccurate and a hostile endeavor, Assange turned analyst and said the movie is destined to be a box-office failure, because audiences prefer combative underdog stories. While Cumberbatch approached his subject asking for a meeting, which Assange declined (in the process trying to persuade the actor not to appear in the movie), Assange criticized the filmmakers for not approaching him or WikiLeaks, and for not contributing to his defense fund or to WikiLeaks. I dont think we are in a situation anymore where an organization like DreamWorks or Disney can succinctly decide that it is going to produce a movie about living people, and living political refugees, and people who are embroiled in a grand jury proceeding in the United States, and just smear, without the cost, he said. Gibney, he said, was clearly biased against him, and has [an] emotional engagement with me that is not proper for a journalist to have. Assange did repeatedly praise one movie about his company Mediastan, a new WikiLeaks-produced documentary. But although the conversation took place with a number of entertainment journalists, Assange spent most of his time railing against the U.S. and British security complexes that he said forced him to seek asylum in the Eucadorian embassy. The Australian-born Assange, 42, is currently facing a European Arrest Warrant in a Swedish investigation into sexual assault; although he said, I assume the Swedish case will disappear on its own accord in due course, he refuses to turn himself in out of fear that Sweden would extradite him to the United States to face charges in the publication of U.S. military and diplomatic documents supplied by Bradley Manning (who now goes by the name Chelsea Manning).

Of course its difficult to wake up over 500 days and see the same walls, but on the other hand I am doing good work, added Manning, who said WikiLeaks was in contact with fugitive NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
