Exclusive Sicario Featurette takes you behind the crime thriller
ComingSoon.net has your first look at a new Sicario featurette on the film’s commitment to realism. You can watch the featurette in the player below. Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro (Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000), Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008), and Victor Garber (Titanic) star in the drug war thriller Sicario, now on Digital HD and available on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand on January 5. An official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the story follows a covert group of crime fighters on a treacherous cross-border operation to take down a Mexican drug kingpin.
From the director of Prisoners comes this taut, critically-acclaimed thriller filled with pulse-pounding suspense, shot by twelve-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins. After an idealistic FBI agent (Blunt) is recruited by a government task-force official (Brolin) to pursue a drug lord, she begins a perilous mission that forces her to question everything she believes—and pits her against a shadowy consultant (Del Toro) with a dangerous agenda.
The Sicario Blu-ray and Digital HD releases include in-depth behind-the-scenes interviews with Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro and a look at the visual design of the film with director Denis Villeneuve. Also included is a look behind the creation of the score with Oscar-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Best Original Score, The Theory of Everything, 2014); and a discussion about writer Taylor Sheridan’s research for the script. The Blu-ray is encoded in Dolby TrueHD and features a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, which delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.
The Blu-ray/Digital HD special features include: “Stepping into Darkness: The Visual Design of Sicario” Featurette; “Blunt, Brolin & Benicio: Portraying the Characters of Sicario” Featurette; “Battle Zone: The Origins of Sicario” Featurette; and “A Pulse from the Desert: The Score of Sicario” Featurette.
