Kill the Messenger stars Jeremy Renner in a new crime thriller about reporter Gary Webb, who becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign that drives him to the point of suicide after he exposes the CIA’s role in arming Contra rebels in Nicaragua and importing cocaine into California.
There’s a large cast on show including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Paz Vega, Michael Sheen, Robert Patrick, Tim Blake Nelson, Ray Liotta, Michael K Williams, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Rosemarie DeWitt, Oliver Platt and Richard Schiff, but the trailer fails to excite me in any way.
Kill the Messenger is out in the UK on November 28th.
