WikiLeaks, a not-for-profit media organization that exposes the truth behind the scenes to the public, apparently is the focus of Dream Works next big project. Basically WikiLeaks is an innovative, anonymous and secure place for sources to leak high profile information. Their posting of original-source material helps get the point across that this is not just for attention, but to prove that their information is truly factual. Exposing pay offs of big companies to government agencies for information or business, government official involvement in drug trafficking or POW’s, this type of high profile information brings on a ton of negative press and enemies from all over. The film, The Fifth Estate, is described by WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange as a “mass propaganda attack.” The film is set to release Nov. 15.
