Watch Jeremy Renner in the Kill the Messenger Trailer

It’s kind of amazing more movies aren’t called “Kill the Messenger.” Still, what is most movies’ loss is this movie’s gain. Based on a true story, Kill the Messenger stars Jeremy Renner as Gary Webb, a journalist who uncovered the CIA’s involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into the U.S. The rest is just classic mess-with-the-bull-you-get-the-horns stuff. The film co-stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Ray Liotta, Tim Blake Nelson, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael K. Williams, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Andy Garcia. It opens in theaters on October 10. Don’t like that date? Too bad. It’s not our fault. Don’t something the something.
