Trailer Watch: Emily Blunt Questions Who Are the Real Killers in Mexico in New 'Sicario' Trailer

What’s an American law-enforcement officer’s duty in Mexico?

According to FBI Agent Kate Macer’s (Emily Blunt) boss, it’s "to dramatically overreact," preferably with a gun. 

An exquisitely tense new trailer for "Sicario" (translation: hitman) finds Macer, an idealistic greenhorn in the FBI, caught working for people who might be even more dangerous than the criminals they’re supposed to capture. And if that’s the case, the question of who the movie’s title refers to blurs quickly, while Macer’s desire to do the right thing increasingly becomes one more reason for someone to want her dead.

"Sicario" opens September 18.
