In all fairness, did you really expect anything less than a perfect trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s new thriller, Sicario (Mexican for “)?
The director of Prisoners, Incendies and Enemy continues to get better and better, and while Prisoners is going to be hard to top, the first Sicario trailer suggests the director has once again upped his game, meaning that his next film, Blade Runner 2, is looking very promising (if unnecessary).
Sicario boasts an awesome cast, and some jaw dropping camera work and masterful action. The whole trailer is dripping with atmosphere, and there is a claustrophobic feel to it, and the weight of tension is almost suffocating.
Yes. as expected, Sicario looks stunning, and is now confirmed as one of my most anticipated films of the year.
Sicario, written by Taylor Sheridan, is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy). The cast includes Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro and Jon Bernthal.
The arrives in UK cinemas on 25th September.
In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman.
