Summary

There seems to be an odd discrepancy in the marketing for Sicario with some trailers painting the film as a dark psychological thriller, and others as a bombastic action adventure. Just which of these two takes on the film is accurate? And how will these trailers influence the way Jon and Matt see the film?

Show Notes

French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is building quite a reputation for himself, his dark, brooding tone, sure-footed direction and stunning visual palette (with the frequent help of the great Roger Deakins) have made him a filmmaker to watch.

Both Jon and Matt were big fans of his previous English language films, Prisoners and Enemy, and the idea of Villeneuve teaming up with Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin in Sicario seems very exciting.

However there seems to be an odd discrepancy in the marketing for the film with some trailers painting Sicario as a dark psychological thriller, and others as a bombastic action adventure. Just which of these two takes on the film is accurate? And how will these trailers influence the way Jon and Matt see the film? 

Join Matt & Jon as they discuss the trailer for Sicario. Then - after the film has been released - they return to discuss the feature itself.
