The Courier got strong early reviews when it had it's world premiere last January at the Sundance Film Festival. Easy to see given the miraculous true story behind the film, focusing on Greville Wynne (Played by Benedict Cumberbatch) who helped the CIA penetrate the Soviet nuclear programme during the Cold War alongside his Russian source, Oleg Penkovsky (Played by Merab Ninidze). Together, they provided crucial intelligence that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Now, after all the delays due to COVID-19, the film will finally get released in the United States and United Kingdom on March 19th of this year. And with that comes the official trailer released today. Check it out below:
The Courier co-stars Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley, Angus Wright, and Kirill Pirogov. It is directed by Dominic Cooke.
