Three mouthed-but-not-vocalized cheers for the return of "Lip Sync Battle"! Spike TV's epic celebrity showdown, hosted by LL Cool J, was an instant hit when it debuted with Dwayne Johnson vs. Jimmy Fallon back in April. It really picked up steam with the Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt match, traumatized us -- in a good way -- with Stephen Merchant and later Julianne Hough, then dipped a bit before going on break. Season 1 is not over, but it's been off the air since May 28. But now it's back with a vengeance, starting next Thursday, July 9.
Here's the upcoming lineup:

Already shaping up to be one of this year's most exciting thrillers, Sicario promises to deliver a combination of cinematic excitement and thoughtful insight into the drug issue when it slams into theaters in limited release on September 18, and then wide on September 25. The film exploded out of the Cannes Film Festival in May. Emily Blunt stars as an FBI agent who is assigned by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to go to Mexico to help bust a powerful drug cartel. She joins a team led by Benicio Del Toro, whose mysterious past clouds the situation as the investigation proves to be far more complicated and dangerous than anticipated. Denis Villenueve directed; he's built up a tremendous head of steam recently with the acclaimed thrillers Prisoners...

As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.
Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.
That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

La Muerte! I'm really loving the marketing for this movie. The latest artwork to debut for the upcoming thriller Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Emily Blunt, was designed in the style of loteria cards from Mexico (a game like bingo but with symbols on cards). The film takes place mostly around Mexico, examining the relationship between Us government agents and drug cartels in Mexico. There are two excellent themed posters, then three more for some of the main cast: Emily Blunt es La Soldado ("the Soldier"), Benicio Del Toro es La Muerte ("Death") and Josh Brolin es El Araña ("the Spider"). I really like how striking and unique the marketing is, and the film looks great (trailer). Can't wait to see it myself. Here's the new set of loteria card posters for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, originally debuted by Movies.com: Click above for full-size. In addition to these posters, »

More than a decade after Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic” took on U.S. drug policy, popular culture is once again turning a jaundiced eye toward the government’s failed efforts to stanch the flow of narcotics.
On the bigscreen, the documentary “Cartel Land” and the thriller “Escobar: Paradise Lost” present parallel stories of vigilantism and criminality, all of it fueled by America’s insatiable appetite for marajuana, cocaine, heroin and other illicit pleasures.
In book stores, Don Winslow, the crack novelist behind “Savages,” is criss-crossing the porous border between Mexico and the U.S. to examine the intractable standoff between cops and drug barons in “The Cartel.” The picture that emerges in each of these works is of rampant lawlessness, shocking violence and dysfunctional policies that have done nothing to reduce illegal drug consumption.
“The war on drugs is a disaster,” Winslow told Variety. “For 45 years we’ve been doing »

Emily Blunt is an FBI agent sent to Mexico to help in the war against drugs, but judging from the new trailer for Sicario, she’s being set up for failure. Hopefully she’s the last woman standing in a role that could have easily gone to a male. Watch the trailer for the film that won rave reviews at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Comments Emily Blunt as a whip smart, can-do badass? Yeah, that’ll pretty much never get old, so keep it coming. The trailer for her latest actioner “Sicario,” a term which means “hitman” in Mexico, is here, and it looks like we’re in for more of the Blunt ballistics we’ve become accustomed to lately. Except … this is going to be an even drearier scenario than the futuristic sci-fi set-ups we’ve seen her in before (see also, “The Adjustment Bureau,” “Looper,” and “Edge of Tomorrow”). This is chaos of the here and now variety. In the gritty crime drama, Blunt stars as an FBI agent who’s been tapped to help regulate the dangerous border between the United States and Mexico as the War on Drugs intensifies. And while any patrol assignment in the area would be hazardous enough to a person’s health, she goes and joins »
Specialising in escalated drug cartel activity response, idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) finds herself assigned by the Us State Department to a taskforce commissioned to aid in the escalating war on drugs along the border area between the Us and Mexico. Led by Matt (Josh Brolin), an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey that forces Kate to question everything she believes in in order to survive.
Written by Sons of Anarchy star Taylor Sheridan and shot by legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins, the film has a stellar supporting cast that includes Benicio Del Torro, Jon Bernthal, Victor Gerber, Jeffrey Donovan and Daniel Kaluuya.

Queen Meryl Streep is turning 66 on Monday, and it's time to salute one of our personal favorite movies starring the award magnet. Nine years after The Devil Wears Prada came out, we're still as obsessed with the movie as ever. Meryl Streep is icy perfection, Anne Hathaway is her innocent foil, and Emily Blunt - well, this is the film that introduces us to Blunt's comic genius. To celebrate the ongoing fabulousness of this movie, we've put together the sassiest, best, funniest moments from the movie. (That's all.) »
Even though Doug Liman's critically acclaimed Edge Of Tomorrow, which starred Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in the lead roles, hit theaters over a year ago, we've seen quite a few sweet new behind-the-scenes featurettes pop up over the past few months. A few days ago, Sony Imageworks VFX released possibly their most interesting video yet, this one taking an in-depth look at the film's menacing villains, the Mimics! Watch it below and learn how the these brilliantly terrifying beasts came to be: Oscar nominee Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' sci-fi thriller "Edge of Tomorrow," under the direction of Doug Liman.

A police officer played by Emily Blunt crosses the boarder to Mexico with a group of mercenaries to track down an infamous drug lord. This is the first trailer for thriller Sicario. Ok, this film looks very good and now I think I have to see Prisoners, which to my shame I missed back when […]
After receiving rave reviews out of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the latest trailer, as well as a new poster and three new images for Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated cartel thriller, Sicario.
When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black-ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000) along with special agent Matt Graver (Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin, Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008).
Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. »

When the mission takes Kate over the border into Mexico, she becomes trapped in the middle of a cat-and-mouse game between the CIA and an all-powerful drug lord.
Sicario was recently screened in competition for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, with the award ultimately going to France's Dheepan.
A Us release date for Sicario has been set for September 18. A UK opening follows on November 6. »
Coming off of great buzz at Cannes, Denis Villeneuve's Sicario arrives on U.S. shores September 18. Today the trailer dropped and it's a doozy.Starring Emily Blunt as an FBI agent who gets thrust into the Mexican Cartel drug war, the Prisoners helmer's latest effort looks to be a morally complex, audacious action-thriller made for adults. Our own Jason Gorber reviewed the film at Cannes and had this to say: "Villeneuve's film feels at times deeply operatic, but it never loses itself into reverie. Blunt in particular is extremely effective, coming across as authentically powerful and vulnerable in equal measure."With some stunning work from cinematographer Robert Deakins the trailer does indeed hint at Jason's take. Sicario also stars Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. Take a...

Denis Villeneuve is one of the best directors to come to the fore in the last few years, with 2013's widely loved Prisoners and his follow up, the complex and surreal thriller, Enemy. Villenueve is not a newcomer to cinema but it is only since the release of his english-language films that the world has decided to sit up and take notice of his talents. His latest feature, Sicario, focuses on Emily Blunt's idealistic FBI agent, who is drafted in to take on a drug cartel in Mexico. When she sets out on a clandestine mission to take down the drug lords, she begins to question everything she believes in, as she sees that the rules apply less and less in order for her mission to succeed. the trailer looks great, with some striking and violent imagery, and a pulsating action beat. If Villeneuve can apply his deft touches »
