Sicario is neither based off a book or science fiction, which is generally what I try to keep film content on this site limited to, but it is a really effective trailer (and not just because it uses a slight variation of the Prometheus trailer siren/screech), so here we are. I’m a big fan of Canadian director Denis Villeneuve’s work in ‘Prisoners‘ and the supremely strange, mind bender that was ‘Enemy‘, so for him to once again team up with legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins and cast Benicio, Jeffery Donovan and Emily Blunt instantly makes it must see territory for me.
Admittedly, the rash of cartel material in cinema lately has been pretty uninteresting to me, but the sense of dread in this trailer is just so heavy. It oozes with such a creepy, ominous tone that feels a bit like David Fincher remaking No Country For Old Men. I will be marking my calendar for this one. Sicario hits theaters September 18th.
