It’s been two years since WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange warned us about widespread survillance on our tech devices, and the world is still fascinated with the silver-haired whistleblower. While the real Assange is still camped out in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Benedict Cumberbatch is stepping into his shoes and bleached hair for Bill Condon‘s The Fifth Estate, which focuses on Assange’s partnership with Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) and the rise of the mighty WikiLeaks.

Though we already got a glimpse of the film and Cumberbatch’s excellent Aussie accent from the trailer (which our own Scott Beggs wrote about here), the film’s team has some released new stills and posters – unfortunately they’re not giving us much to work with.

There’s Assange on camera during an interview, a group of concerned Suits in a situation room probably learning about a new leak and a truly terrifying close-up of Peter Capaldi looking into your soul as if you’ve done something personal to offend him. Check them out after the break, and head on over to The Playlist for some futuristic-looking posters.

The Fifth Estate is in theaters October 18th.
