She may have been a one time Bond Girl, now Olga Kurylenko Goes Full Throttle in The Courier. Today Signature Entertainment release the UK Trailer for the action thriller as an mysterious bike courier set to deliver a ‘gas bomb’. Set to kill the witness to take down a crime lord Ezekiel (Gary Oldman), taking on her clients goons.
This one echoes The Transporter, but with a woman on a bike. We have no problems with that theory as this does look highly entertaining. Yes it might not be highly original, but it’s all about escapism. A chance to leave the real world behind for a couple of hours of brainless OTT fun. Kurylenko doesn’t look out of place nor does Oldman with his eyepatch. Franchise in the making? Possibly!
Set against a gritty London backdrop, Olga Kurylenko plays a tough motorbike courier whose work is interrupted when she discovers that one of the packages she’s transporting is a bomb. It transpires that the gas bomb she carries is set to kill Nick Murch (Amit Shah, Final Score), the only witness able to testify in Washington DC against ruthless crime lord Ezekiel Manning (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight). As the British Police and FBI scramble to try and deal with the mess, the mysteriously well-trailed and equipped courier teams up with unlikely partner Nick to evade Manning’s heavily armed goons and make sure that justice is delivered.
Also starring Dermot Mulroney (Homecoming), William Moseley (Narnia) and Alicia Agneson (Vikings). From the Producer of Darkest Hour. Directed by Zackary Adler.
