In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. It is also the name of the new Denis Villeneuve directed crime / mystery / drama about a ‘fish out of water’ FBI agent enlisted to fight the escalating war on drugs in Mexico – whilst accompanied by a mysterious consultant.
With something of an End Of Watch (2012) vibe (which you know is a great thing if you’ve seen the Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena film); Sicario’s main stars include Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Daniel Kaluuya and Jon Bernthal.
Why trailer of the week? The execution that doesn’t give too much away, but just enough to get you excited, the excellent editing and that gloriously unsettling musical score, courtesy of Johann Johannsson.
