Cumberbatch's 'The Fifth Estate' named 'worst major studio debut'

Washington, October 21 (ANI): Benedict Cumberbatch's latest film 'The Fifth Estate' has flopped at the U.S. box office as it made only 1.7 million dollars, making it the worst major debut of the year so far.

The thriller film starring the 37-year old actor as the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, directed by Bill Condon, had flopped even at the U.K. box office earlier this month, Contactmusic reported.

The biopic which cost 26 million dollars to make for Participant Media and Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Studios was ranked eighth at the U.S. box office, despite opening in more than 1,500 theatres nationwide. (ANI)
