Jeremy Renner uncovers a conspiracy in the trailer for Kill The Messenger

05.29.2014

Remember that guy, Jeremy Renner? Haven't seen much of him lately. Apparently, between filming AVENGERS movies and restarting the BOURNE franchise, the Oscar-nominated actor found time to make a little movie called KILL THE MESSENGER. But, before you write it off as a little indie flick that will go unnoticed, check out the trailer below.

KILL THE MESSENGER comes from director Michael Cuesta who is best known as a television director but also helmed the brilliant L.I.E. back in 2001. Since then, he has directed multiple episodes of TRUE BLOOD, ELEMENTARY, and HOMELAND. It may be his experience on that latter series that prepared him for the political conspiracy laden KILL THE MESSENGER.

A reporter 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. Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb.

KILL THE MESSENGER also boasts one hell of a cast that includes osemarie DeWitt, Ray Liotta, Tim Blake Nelson, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael K. Williams, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Andy Garcia. It reminds me of a cross between BLOW and ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. If it is half as good as those movies, KILL THE MESSENGER should be a winner when it hits theaters October 10th.

Don't forget 12 and Holding

Cuesta did a nice little film together about 9 years ago. Renner was supporting and turned in a lovely emotional performance. Since then the two have been trying to work together again. I have zero doubt about Renner's performance and I think Cuesta is up to the challenge, Renner certainly thinks he is, so if the script is there this could be a potential awards winner.

You need to watch more Renner movies...

This is Hawkward. Renner has a movie in theaters right now, AS WE SPEAK. Haha please, for your own sake, check out American Hustle and The Immigrant. The latter is an incredible film and Renner is excellent in both. You won't be wasting your time and they're definitely projects that have occurred between Avenger films.

This movie looks tight, I will def be seeing it. I don't think I've seen Renner lead a drama in ages. He looks like he brought his A game. Michael Cuesta is a fantastic

wow

this looks like a Scorsese or Stone film! in fact, the director is the only unproven aspect here. still, the acting, actors and script seem solid. hope that soundtrack vibe sticks with it.

This looks great. Nicely put together trailer with the rhythm of the music and all. Renner seems to be shining in the main role. Exposing the real life conspiracies can make some great films.

I'm getting All the President's Men, The Falcon and the Snowman, and Argo vibes. Looks like a nice old-fashioned Hollywood thriller, with one heck of a killer cast.

I really like the "reporter way out of their depth" genre. Looks good.

Been waiting for this for two years now and it looks like it's worth the wait.

Looks terrific. Glad to see Renner doing more drama lately with this, and The Immigrant. I enjoy his action films, but I like his dramatic roles more when he can actually flex his acting muscle like in Hurt Locker, The Town, American Hustle, etc.
