Lionsgate has released an official trailer for The Courier, a true-life cold war thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
I don’t know why, but I can never find myself showing any excitement towards a true story film starring Cumberbatch. I think he is a great actor, but aside from Sherlock and Doctor Strange, I don’t really care what else he is in. His biopics look like snores or the trailers just don’t sell the film that good.
I mean maybe I will go see The Courier. It actually looks like there could be some dramatic tension woven into the plot I might find interesting. I just (obviously) happen to think Cumberbatch is at his best when he is playing characters who think too highly of themselves or have a large ego.
The Courier hits theaters March 19, 2021.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
