We are counting down the days until Sicario hits the big screen as it is already being billed as the 'best thriller of the year.'



We are huge fans of Emily Blunt here at FemaleFirst and I cannot wait to see her in action as an FBI agent in this new action role. Ever since Sicario screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, just about everyone has been raving about this movie.

And we can see Blunt in action in this great new clip that sees her character taking part in a raid... where they find a little more than they were bargaining for. Check it out:

Sicario marks the return of Denis Villeneuve to the director's chair - who has brought us movies such as Prisoners, Enemy, and Incendies - while Taylor Sheridan has penned the screenplay.

Sicario will mark the first time that Blunt has teamed up with the filmmaker and she leads a truly star-studdied cast. Blunt will take on the role of Kate Macer and is joined by Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey Donovan.

In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent (Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs.

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

Of course, we are getting to that time of year when we are looking to pick out some of the potential Oscar contenders and Sicario is already being tipped as a film to watch out for. Could we see Emily Blunt in the Best Actress Oscar race for the first time?

Sicario is released 8th October.
