SANTA MONICA, CA (November 16, 2015) – 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 must-see drug war thriller Sicario, arriving on Digital HD December 22 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the film will also be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand January 5. An official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the edge-of-your-seat action-packed 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 Sicario Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
