Having gained critical acclaim for his heart-pounding crime thriller Prisoners, Denis Villeneuve lends his signature touch again to upcoming film Sicario. The plot revolves around the story of an FBI agent (Emily Blunt) whose involvement in the war on drugs at the southern border of the U.S. takes her into Mexico, into the heartland of drug cartels. Accompanied by a CIA official, played by Josh Brolin, and a mysterious consultant (Benicio del Toro), the trio encounter something larger and more threatening than they could ever prepare for. Premiering last month in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Sicario is due to release on September 25.
