Welcome to Juarez, home of the drugez, can I take your order? A new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners, Enemy) upcoming crime thriller Sicario has been released. The film, loosely based on my life, centers on members of a government task force who enlist an idealistic FBI agent to aid them in their plan to take down the brutal chieftain of a Mexican drug cartel. I am very excited to see this at TIFF in a couple of weeks. Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Victor Garber, Jeffrey Donovan, and Jon Bernthal also star. Sicario hits theaters on September 25th.
In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent [Emily Blunt] is enlisted by an elite government task force official [Josh Brolin] to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del Toro], the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
