Lionsgate releases new images for ‘THE COURIER’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Lionsgate UK has released new images for the upcoming historical drama, THE COURIER, coming to cinemas nationwide on 19 March 2021.

Directed by Dominic Cooke from a screenplay by Tom O’Connor, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch alongside Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley, Merab Ninidze, Angus Wright, and Kirill Pirogov.

THE COURIER is a true-life spy thriller, the story of an unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history.   At the behest of the UK’s MI6 and a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan), he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze) in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation  and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.
