The new film "The Fifth Estate" had its premiere during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 5, 2013, in Toronto, Canada. "The Fifth Estate" was directed by Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls") and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Brühl and Carice van Houten.
"The Fifth Estate" is a dramatic thriller based on real events and reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century's most fiercely debated organization.
This is the debut of "The Fifth Estate." The film will be released in the U.S. theaters on Friday, Oct. 18 and will battle for box office dollars with the horror flick starring Chloë Grace Moretz "Carrie," the thriller "Escape Plan," Chiwetel Ejiofor's "12 Years a Slave" and the action film "All is Lost."
"The Fifth Estate" is rated R for language and some violence and has a run-time of 2 hours and 4 minutes.
The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival runs from Sept. 5 through Sept. 15.

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cellphones and no texting, please don't talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
