New ‘Sicario’ Trailer Somehow Ramps Up The Tension Even More

Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario has a second trailer, shorter than the original trailer that hit back in June. Regardless, the tension is just as high this time around.

Here is the latest Sicario trailer:

For a refresher, here is the synopsis for Sicario:

In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman.

In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent [Emily Blunt] is enlisted by an elite government task force official [Josh Brolin] to aid in the escalating war against drugs.

Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del Toro], the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.

Count Sicario as one of my most highly anticipated films this fall. I am a huge fan of Denis Villeneuve’s polarizing Prisoners, and I admired Enemy to a point. Villeneuve brings a fresh auteur eye on the adult thriller. And Emily Blunt is defining her career as a strong female action presence, one outside the superhero canon.

Sicario hits theaters September 18.
