Pulse-Pounding Sicario Clip Has Emily Blunt Breach And Clear A Safe House

24 August 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Among the many compliments hailed at Edge of Tomorrow, one of the most prominent was in regards to Emily Blunt’s turn in the sci-fi actioner as battle-worn veteran Sergeant Rita Rose Vrataski. It was a role that proved to be just as memorable as that of Tom Cruise’s, and the actress is dipping her toe in the genre once more – albeit for a film that swaps alien invasion for gruelling drug busts – with Denis Villeneuve’s anticipated thriller, Sicario.

Partnering with his regular cinematographer Roger Deakins once more after 2013’s excellent genre piece Prisoners, the director’s latest project is shaping up to be a slick, pulse-pounding drama, and today’s clip only drives that point home. Charting a drugs bust carried out by Benicio Del Toro’s enigmatic consultant, the footage sees Emily Blunt’s rookie FBI agent get thrust in at the deep end upon joining the elite task force, »

Watch Emily Blunt in this brand new clip from the upcoming cartel-thriller Sicario. (trailer)

From director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies) comes a searing emotional-thriller that descends into the intrigue, corruption and moral mayhem of the borderland drug wars.

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, »

Treatment/De Behandeling review – a Boschian hell that’s all too real

23 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Horribly convincing performances make this exploitative abduction thriller hard to watch

This overcranked paedophile/child abduction thriller (a Nordic-influenced Belgian/Dutch production from British author Mo Hayder’s bestseller) is as well made as it is occasionally unwatchable. Geert Van Rampelberg is convincingly rattled as Nick Cafmeyer, a detective whose brother was snatched as a child, and whose spectre he now chases through child-abuse cases. Investigating a horrific crime bound up with local tales of “the troll”, Cafmeyer uncovers a web of rape and torture, the details of which become more grotesquely baroque with each foul revelation. His superiors doubt his sanity but oddly we do not; Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners did a much better job of wrong-footing our vigilante instincts, even as it similarly descended into absurdity. Horribly convincing performances add exploitative heft, while Johan Van Essche’s production design makes the Boschian hell seem all too real.

12 Lesser Known Fall Movies You Should Be Excited About

20 August 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Weinstein Company

With the summer blockbuster season coming to an end, it’s time to get hyped for an amazing selection of fall movies. There are dozens of films on the horizon that everyone’s looking forward to; The Hateful Eight, Spectre, The Hunger Games, and a little something called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to name just a few.

But what about the non blockbusters?

These lesser known twelve upcoming films could actually be incredible, but right now they’re being somewhat neglected with everyone so focused on Quentin Tarantino and Han Solo.

Here are 2015’s underlooked fall films you should be more excited for.

12. Sicario

Lionsgate

Release date: September 18 (Us) / October 9 (UK)

In 2013, the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal film Prisoners was one of the most underappreciated movies of the year, a well constructed thriller with truly memorable characters. Director Denis Villeneuve followed that up with the strange but intriguing Enemy, »

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Desplat, Jóhannsson, Zimmer Are Double Nominees for World Soundtrack Awards

18 August 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veritable perennials Alexandre Desplat and Hans Zimmer are among the double nominees for the 15th annual World Soundtrack Awards, which take place Oct. 24 as the culminating event of Film Fest Gent in Belgium.

Desplat, who won an Oscar in February for his “Grand Budapest Hotel” score, is once again vying for the both the Wsa’s composer and score of the year, both of which he won last year (he has won eight previous WSAs). This time Desplat is competing with his score for “The Imitation Game,” which was also nominated for an Oscar, and his recognition as a composer — which accounts for a maestro’s body of work over the course of the previous year — includes such works as “Unbroken,” “Everything Will Be Fine” and “Tale of Tales.”

Zimmer, who has amassed 15 previous Wsa nominations and one win, is being recognized this year for his “Interstellar” score, and his »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Cinematography

18 August 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After many loses, Emmanuel Lubezki finally won an Oscar two years ago for "Gravity," and then managed to do so again a year later for "Birdman." And it looks very likely he'll be in the conversation once again for his re-team with "Birdman" director Alejandro G. Inarritu on “The Revenant" -- which looks stunning as far as the trailer is concerned.  But can he really win three in a row? His competition appears to potentially once again be Roger Deakins, who has been nominated 12 times now without a win, including the last three years (for "Skyfall," "Prisoners" and "Unbroken," respectively). Deakins is in the running this time around for "Sicario," a re-team with his "Prisoners" collaborator Denis Villenueve. So wil it be Deakins v. Lubezki 3.0? Or will the respected likes of Dariusz Wolski ("The Martian" or "The Walk"), John Seale ("Mad Max: Fury Road"), Robert »

The objective is to dramatically overreact in new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Sicario’

14 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While 2014 saw Emily Blunt take up arms against an invading alien army in Edge of Tomorrow, she’ll be wielding a gun later this year as part of the Us War on Drugs in Sicario.

The film is the newest directorial effort from Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, and has just released a new trailer. Villeneuve directs from a script by actor and first-time screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, working with a cast that includes Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Victor Garber.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

An idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by an elected government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.

The trailer sets the dialogue’s moral ambiguity against the thumping strains of Big K.R.I.T.’s “Saturday=Celebration”. This is Villeneuve’s second Us production, after 2013’s Prisoners, and cinematographer Roger Deakins, »

Emily Blunt Tackles The War On Drugs Head On In Thrilling Trailer For Sicario

13 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 2013, Prisoners irrefutably proved that director Denis Villeneuve could handle a character-driven drama toplined by A-listers like Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Imagine our excitement, then, when we first caught wind of the filmmaker’s new project: the Mexican narcotics thriller Sicario.

And today, we have the latest trailer for the thriller, which sees Emily Blunt’s FBI agent, Kate, drafted in to assist in the war against drugs. Such a commitment will have her unite with Josh Brolin’s no-nonsense task force official, as the pair make tracks for the Mexican border to foil a sizeable drugs trade.

For a generic action drama, there’s certainly a lot to be excited about, and that in large part comes down to Villeneuve reteaming with esteemed cinematographer Roger Deakins. The pair crafted a moody, intense thriller with Prisoners – one that gnawed at your mind long after the credits rolled. For Sicario, »

Exclusive: Emily Blunt pulls the trigger in new trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario

13 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In this September’s Sicario, FBI agent Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) is handpicked for a government task force during the escalating war against drugs. What’s their objective? “To dramatically overreact,” says Josh Brolin in the newest Sicario trailer, which debuts exclusively in Canada right here on Cineplex.com.

 

Kate is partnered with a non-American mercenary (Benicio del Toro) for her mission south of the Us-Mexican border. However, as she and Alejandro (del Toro) get closer and closer to tracking down their target, a drug lord, Kate starts questioning Alejandro’s motives.

In Mexico, “sicario” means “hired killer,” and that’s very much what Alejandro is – but can he be trusted?

Canada’s Denis Villeneuve (EnemyPrisoners) reteams with cinematographer Rogers Deakins, who’s probably best known for his work with the Coen Brothers, Sam Mendes, and for never winning an Oscar despite his twelve incredibly well-earned nominations. Honestly, just give it to him already. »
