What is there left to say about “Sicario” except that for those of us who didn’t get to see it Cannes, we can’t wait to finally check out the movie when it opens next month. Denis Villenuve has proven himself to be one of the best directors in the game at the moment, shifting styles and genres with ease and originality. We can’t wait to see what he does within the confines of the border/drug drama.
Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro all star in the film about an a woman who joins an elite government task force that tackles the war on drugs head-on. As you’ll see in this clip it’s not a job for the faint-hearted, as Blunt participates in a cartel raid that rings out with shots fired and blood spattered.
“Sicario” opens on September 18th.
