Sicario (2015) Movie Trailer: Emily Blunt Battles Mexican Drug Cartels

Sicario Trailer. Denis Villeneuve‘s Sicario (2015) movie trailer stars Jon Bernthal, Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, and Victor Garber. Sicario‘s plot synopsis: “In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by an elite government task force official to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.”

This looks like an exciting drama. I immediately thought of The Bridge and Traffic when I began watching this trailer. Emily Blunt is center stage and she owns ever scene. Her character seems to have gotten over her head with her “allies.”

Sicario also stars Jeffrey Donovan, Raoul Trujillo, Daniel Kaluuya, Maximiliano Hernández, Sarah Minnich, Lora Martinez-Cunningham, Alan D. Purwin,

Enlisted in a daring plot to take down a Mexican cartel boss, the agent must rely on her wits and training to stay alive, even as the specifics of the mission lead her to question what ethical and moral lines she’s willing to
