Box Office Disaster: Benedict Cumberbatch's 'The Fifth Estate' has worst debut of 2013



Benedict Cumberbatch knows he has a rabid fan base of Tumblr-obsessed fans. When asked whether he was worried that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange might attack his new drama The Fifth Estate, in which he plays the infamous hacker, Cumberbatch kept his cool: “The Cumberitches have got my back,” he told EW.

But, as it turns out, the Cumberbitches didn’t have his back this weekend — at least not at the box office. The Fifth Estate bombed in its opening weekend with a truly awful $1.7 million from 1,769 theaters, making it the worst debut for a film opening in at least 1,500 theaters this year. (Sorry, Paranoia!) The film, which cost Disney a reported $26 million to produce, earned tepid reviews from critics and could only manage an anemic $969 location average.
