A tense, stylish trailer for a film described by critics as just that, this is the first official look at Denis Villeneuve's Sicario. Having crossed over from Canadian, French-language titles with 2013 films Prisoners and Enemy, and having established partnerships with Oscar-friendly names like cinematographer Roger Deakins and composer Johann Johannsson, Villeneuve produced a taut, effective cartel thriller that impressed Thierry Fremaux so much that he gave the film a competition berth at Cannes last month. Editing is by Steve McQueen collaborator Joe Walker. Out in the US on the 18th of September, while they've chosen to delay the UK release until the 25th as a little birthday present for me, but frankly it's not even half what I deserve lbr.
