'Welcome to Juarez' - One More Trailer for 'Sicario' with Emily Blunt
Who pulls the trigger? Lionsgate has debuted one more kick ass trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, this one an international trailer that moves at a fast-pace but still maintains the intensity. Emily Blunt stars as a young FBI agent down in Mexico trying to take down a Mexican cartel, but finds out it's much more complicated than it seems. The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan and Victor Garber. We've seen a couple of excellent trailers, so no more are needed, but why not toss another one into the mix. I'm just ready to see this damn film already, it looks outstanding. Enjoy!
Here's the newest trailer (+ poster) for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
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.

Yea, I'm with you on this one, Alex, in that I'm ready to see this film too. It sure has the potential to be a very good one what with the subject matter. I just finished the quite lengthly novel by Don Winslow, The Cartel. Very heavy stuff this whole violent drug cartel thing going on in Mexico. All to bring billions and billions of dollars worth of drugs into this country to satisfy the demand for said drugs. The horrible violence taking place between the cartels themselves and the governments 'supposedly' fighting against them is mind blowing. Plus the corruption that's always very present for all those involved. Big, big money and heavy power struggles in providing drugs for the folks certainly reveals a dark part of the human condition, that's for sure. I really like Blunt, Brolin and Del Toro so this could be interesting. The director made a very, very good film Incindies, also dealing with a very dark and a very heavy subject matter. His Prisoners didn't do much for me so I'm a bit apprehensive as what he'll turn out here. Still, the interesting subject and a great cast is instilling interest and curiosity in me so we'll see.

The action sequences should be thrilling. I can't wait for the night vision sequence! The one from ZERO DARK THIRTY was amazing. Blunt looks like she is giving it her all for this one. Benicio is looking like the Latino Brad Pitt.
