by at .  Updated at . Comments

The latest teaser from The Fifth Estate paints quite a picture. It features images of the evolution of the news media, from revolutionaries who printed the truth about their leaders on leaflets through the establishment of newspapers and then the explosion of information that came via the World Wide Web.

After a successful premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, The Fifth Estate will hit theaters everywhere October 18.
