While at the Toronto International Film festival, I landed an exclusive video interview with Emily Blunt for one of my favorite films of 2015: Sicario. The Denis Villeneuve-directed film stars Blunt as an FBI agent who’s assigned to assist in the war on drugs on the border between the U.S. and Mexico. She sets out on a top-secret mission under the leadership of a questionable consultant (Benicio Del Toro) whose actions make her rethink what she’s committed herself to. Josh Brolin, who plays an elite government task force official, also stars alongside Jon Bernthal, Victor Garber, and Jeffrey Donovan. For more on Sicario, read Adam’s review and why he thinks it’s a serious awards contender in a number of Oscar categories.
During the interview, Blunt talked about memorable moments from filming, getting to collaborate with legendary Director of Photography Roger Deakins, if she wants to be in a superhero movie, the Captain Marvel rumors, and more.
