This weekend, millions of preteens will flock to theaters to take in the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, just as millions of preteens flocked to each of the five Twilight movies. For the most part, however, these will not be the same people.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, but the controversial activist isn't happy with the actor's new WikiLeaks film, "The Fifth Estate."
Cumberbatch, who portrays Assange in the DreamWorks drama, had apparently reached out to Assange before shooting the film, but the WikiLeaks founder later declined and went on to explain in a new letter why he refused to meet with the British actor while again voicing his displeasure with the film.
“I believe you are a good person, but I do not believe that this film is a good film,” Assange wrote.
“Your skills play into the hands of people who are out to remove me and WikiLeaks from the world…I believe that you should reconsider your involvement in this enterprise.”
This isn’t the first time WikiLeaks has criticized the the Bill Condon-directed drama, which is partly based on the book “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange and the World’s Most Dangerous Website,” by Daniel Domscheit-Berg.
Last month, the controversial site blasted the new film for its inaccuracies and depictions of the WikiLeaks staff.
“Most of the events depicted never happened, or the people shown were not involved in them. It has real names, real places, and looks like it is covering real events, but it is still a dramatic and cinematic work, and it invents or shapes the facts to fit its narrative goals,” the org wrote.

"Young women trapped in gilded cages: that’s the theme that comes to mind when thinking about the films of Sofia Coppola, so readily that her Wikipedia page uses the phrase almost verbatim. The Virgin Suicides starred five suburban sisters under ever-tightening parental lockdown. Lost in Translation found a rock photographer’s wife free yet adrift in a swank Tokyo hotel. Marie Antoinette made a subject of, well, Marie Antoinette, and Somewhere left its eleven-year-old daughter of a disaffected movie star with no choice but turn up on on her dad’s Chateau Marmont doorstep. Even now, the filmmaker completes work on The Bling Ring, whose titular clutch of teenagers find themselves driven to burgle the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and other such luminaries, surely out of sheer ennui. But the most vicious expression of the signature Sofia Coppola setup came in her very first film, the 1998 short Lick the Star."

A search of the film music research didn’t uncover any related studies along these lines. Indeed, almost all film music studies have focused solely on the effects of nondiegetic music. Diegetic music has been largely neglected in the research. So my colleagues Matthew Spackman (Brigham Young University) and Elizabeth Wakefield (Kalamazoo College) and I set out to investigate.
