Trailer: Emily Blunt In “Sicario”

It was a smash at Cannes, and now Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s thriller “Sicario” starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro. Blunt plays an FBI agent assigned to the U.S.-Mexico border in the company of two men, a CIA official (Brolin) and a mysterious consultant (del Toro).

Villeneuve, coming off the huge success of “Prisoners,” reunites with cinematographer Roger Deakins on the project which has been described as containing expert action and being very violent and bleak in its exploration of a complicated scenario. “Sicario” opens September 18th.
