The brand new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario is here, and it doesn’t let up in its uncompromising and brutal look at the new wild west of Juárez, Mexico.
Emily Blunt stars as idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer who is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant (Benicio del Toro) with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
Sicario’s first trailer is one hard tasting cocktail of equal parts compelling drama and vicious action. Blunt absolutely holds her own as a sheep who has to becomes a wolf at the edge of the USA/Mexico border where the only laws are set by the cartels, while Benicio del Toro’s mercenary operative Alejandro makes for a very unpredictable, and very lethal teammate who might just have his own agenda.
Sicario is definitely not one for the faint of heart, but Villeneuve and his cast look to have definitely delivered. Sicario will open in cinemas on September 17.
