Sicario – Official Trailer #1 – Emily Blunt

sicarioSicario translates to ‘hitman’ in Mexico, but they don’t want to get confused with the movie reboot based on the videogame which is ALSO having a reboot this year.

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

The film also stars Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, Jeffrey Donovan, and is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners).

Sicario is released in the UK on September 25th, just a week after the US get it, and it looks very good indeed.
