Sicario trailer

This fall brings the arrival in theaters of Sicario, the latest film from Enemy and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve, with a cast highlighted by Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin. The three play corners on a triangle of official and sometimes very unofficial players in the war between law agencies and Mexican drug cartels.

This new Sicario trailer has some of the same footage as the last domestic trailer, but it is a bit shorter, so it reveals less, and it is cut in a slightly more broad manner, presumably to get its ideas across to a larger audience. It is still quite good, and still makes Emily Blunt look like a total badass.  Read More »

Sicario

Who would have guessed, when Emily Blunt first broke through as Meryl Streep’s snobby assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, that she’d go on to have a career as a badass action hero? Yet here we are with Looper and Edge of Tomorrow and now Sicario, the latter of which promises to be her darkest turn yet.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Sicario follows an FBI agent involved with the war on drugs. Her latest assignment takes her to the U.S.-Mexico border in the company of two men, a CIA official played by Josh Brolin and a mysterious consultant played by Benicio del Toro.

roger deakins Blade Runner 2

Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner is a film that’s revered for its look. However, cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth rarely gets the credit. Instead, it usually goes to his director, production designer, set designer and others. With director Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel now in the works, fans were certainly wondering if the look of the new film could live up to that universal praise. That answer is now, undoubtedly, yes.

The cinematographer for Villeneuve’s last two films, Roger Deakins, will be shooting Blade Runner 2 when the cameras role next year. Deakins shot Prisoners and the upcoming Sicario for the director, as well as Fargo, The Shawshank Redemption, The Big Lebowski, Skyfall and many others. He’s famously been nominated for 12 Cinematography Oscars without winning one. Read more about Roger Deakins Blade Runner 2 below. Read More »
