Sicario Trailer

"Every day across that border people are kidnapped, or killed." Lionsgate has debuted the second full-on trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario starring Emily Blunt and it is intense as all hell. This is the film, which already premiered at Cannes (read our review), starring Blunt as a young FBI agent working the drug cartels in Mexico. The first trailer was solid but this cranks things up and reminds us that there's no safety around any corner. The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan and Victor Garber. This is still one of my most anticipated films to see this fall, can't wait to check it out.

Here's the second trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, direct from YouTube (via The Playlist):

Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, from a script by Taylor Sheridan, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival as an In-Competition film. Official synopsis: "A young female FBI agent joins a secret CIA operation to take down a Mexican cartel boss, a job that ends up pushing her ethical and moral values to the limit." The story in the film specifically features a loophole in which mercenaries are legally allowed to cross the border of Mexico in order to bring in a drug lord. "It's about the alienation of the cycles of violence, how at one point we are in those spirals of violence and ask ourselves, 'Is there a solution?' My movie raises the question; it doesn't give any answer." Lionsgate will release Villeneuve's Sicario in theaters starting September 18th this fall.

Looks good, will probably check it out.. but not sure I agree with the "must watch" nor "intense as all hell" comments, but that's just my opinion.

Felt more like a TV spot than a true trailer. But I'm still in. It's a solid cast and I am interested in seeing the protagonists idealism in the flawed and dark reality of Villeneuve's world.

No red-blooded male would disagree with you. But...sorry, mate. It ain't likely to occur anytime in the near future.

Let's see. I liked the director's film, Incendies...a lot. I didn't much care for Prisoners; not a fan of either of the 2 leads in that movie. I like Emily Blunt...a lot. As well as Josh Brolin and Del Toro. I don't like the photography or look of this digital-shot movie. At all. So, some pro's and some con's. I'll give it a shot on cable, more than in 6 months! Sure as hell won't spend 14 bucks on it in a theatre filled with people phone chatting and texting and talking and munching on their popcorn. No sir!

I hope you want take it against me, but, for some reasons, I am really glad I don't live in USA. Going to cinema might be just one thing. Your remark just reminded me of that. Other than that, I think US has great individuals. However, I'm not sure about the nation. It looks way too unfair system of living for many ...

Let me tell you, America is largely a giant cesspit. Unless you are wealthy.

Well, I've no grips when people have trouble with the U.S.A. There is a lot wrong here, for sure, and collectively the country thinks it's the cat's meow...which is stupid in that that means everyone else and their country isn't. People don't like that and I don't blame them. However, having said that, I've traveled around the world and if I'd of found a better place to live I'd be living there. Because I didn't...I live here...and that's cool with me. By the way, where do you live?

Fairly put. I live in Europe, one of the former Yugoslav state, Croatia, member of EU. Small one, nothing special (however there's nice food, fine coast, mild weather, beautiful women, so it can be endurable ...). More-less, I could say the same about my country what you said about yours. Some time ago, I had a strong wish to leave, but, after seeing things around, I wasn't so sure. However, since I have relatives all over Europe, I sometimes still considering it.. Since, sometimes, probably, think of my country even worse than you might think of yours (for the reasons of nationalism,bigotry and like) But mostly, I like Europe, although, I don't feel any contempt for North America. either... There, I have mostly friends in Canada (which will bring some popularity in US, huh?) and they are nice people. Sometimes I meet someone from US, but haven't made some serious contacts with them. Enough?

Thanks, Shiboleth. Sounds like you have a good life. You certainly are in tune with all the latest films. I liked you stating there is nice food, fine coast, and mild weather...I have to have mild weather which is why I live in Southern California, L.A. I love the weather. And oh yea, the beautiful women part too. Same here. A necessity, right? Sure doesn't seem there'd be any reason for you to leave. Europe is so much more sophisticated in so many aspects than America, so you're in a pretty good place. Take care. Let's see what we think of this movie, Sicario, when it comes out.

Damn. How did Mexican gangs get so fucking crazy?! I know like we (The US) are blamed for training some of the bosses, but where did their shear brutality come from? Stringing people up, "barreling" people, soccer ball heads... // This still looks amazingly tense. Villenueve is like the better version of David Ayer.

She has a great intensity in her face. Looks interesting.
