SICARIO

Having debuted to universal critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, SICARIO, the white-knuckle thriller of 2015, blazes onto Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms from February 1st, 2016, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Starring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Emily Blunt (Edge Of Tomorrow, Into The Woods), Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (True Grit, No Country For Old Men) and Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Inherent Vice), SICARIO is a searing, unflinching journey into the deadly, volatile and morally murky world of Mexican drug cartels from visionary director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners).

When FBI agent Kate Macer (Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find causes shockwaves on a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Del Toro) along with shadowy agent Matt Graver (Brolin).

Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. The jagged line of the U.S. and Mexican border is now awash with some of the most pressing issues of our time: drugs, terror, illegal immigration, corruption and an escalating swathe of violence that has left people on both sides frightened and vigilant.

With mesmerising cinematography from 12-time Oscar® nominee Roger Deakins (True Grit, No Country For Old Men), and an outstanding supporting performance from Jon Bernthal (Ant Man, Fury) SICARIO is the perfect action thriller to kick off the New Year.
