Oscar winner Benicio del Toro (“Traffic,” “The Usual Suspects”) is front and center and bringing the heat as a mysterious consultant — or possible hitman — in the latest look at “Sicario.” The drama premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and will screen at TIFF in September.
Del Toro stars alongside Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin in the thriller, which focuses on an FBI agent (Blunt) who crosses the border with help from an elite government task force official (Brolin) and a mysterious Mexican consultant (del Toro). It doesn’t take long for the idealistic woman to learn that not everything is as cut and dry as she had originally thought, and she must think twice in order to survive the journey to catch a drug lord.
“Sicario” hits theaters on September 18. Check out the new UK trailer above.
