Sicario — 60-second Trailer


added: Tue, Jul 28th '15

Emily Blunt is an earnest FBI agent who gets in over her head when joining a hush-hush military operation on the U.S.-Mexico border in the new 60-second trailer for the drug cartel thriller "Sicario."

The film, also starring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro as an enigmatic U.S. government operative and his Mexican off-the-books advisor, is exploring America's largely unseen war on drugs, which due to the rise in violence from Mexican drug cartels has been heavily militarized like never before.

At one point in the trailer, after witnessing some questionable actions by her fellow agents, Blunt's character says, "I'm not a soldier. This is not what I do." When she threatens to expose the operation, she gets a not-so-friendly warning by Brolin's character: "That would be a major mistake." Which is understandable, since the trailer informs us that "in Mexico, Sicario means hitman."

Premiering to rave reviews at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where many critics have pointed out the bold directing style of acclaimed French-Canadian helmer Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy, Incendies), "Sicario" is now scheduled to make its North American debut at TIFF, shortly before opening in U.S. theaters on September 18th.

In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. -- In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past (Benicio Del Toro), the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
