Lionsgate debuts poster and trailer for The Courier

While most tend to focus these days on Benedict Cumberbatch’s roles in the MCU and as Sherlock Holmes, I always love to see what else he takes on. His latest film The Courier co-starring Merab Ninidze, Rachel Brosnahan, and Jessie Buckley with Dominic Cooke in the directors seat looks to bring this true life spy thriller to life.

The Courier follows the story of an unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. At the behest of the UK’s MI-6 and a CIA operative, he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.

While you will have to wait until March 19 to see the film in theaters you can check out the trailer and poster here now from Lionsgate.
