Lionsgate announces The Courier on Blu-ray and DVD
While he may be more notable for Doctor Strange these days Benedict Cumberbatch already established himself in great roles like Sherlock and voicing the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit. I must admit though I like seeing him in the non-genre roles even more like his more recent film The Mauritanian and his latest The Courier co-starring Merab Ninidze, Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley, and Angus Wright.
The Courier follows unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne becomes entangled in one of the greatest international conflicts in history. Recruited by MI6 and a CIA operative, Wynne forms a covert partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky, and both men risk everything in a danger-fraught race against time to provide the intelligence needed to prevent nuclear confrontation and end the Cuban Missile Crisis.
In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including a behind the scenes featurette. Step into the world of espionage when The Courier hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 1st from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
