Guns are fired and blood is spilled in this intense new clip from Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario.” 

The thriller re-teams “Prisoners” director Villeneuve with cinematographer Roger Deakins and stars Emily Blunt as an FBI agent who is recuirited by a government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Her time across the border puts her in contact with a questionable Mexican consultant (Benicio del Toro) and forces her to question everything she knows.

While trailers for the film have hinted at a scene involving a violent drug raid, Lionsgate has now released a full clip from the film depicting the visceral confrontation.

“Sicario” first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and will stop at TIFF before opening nationwide September 18.
