With less than a month to go before, Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, hits cinemas, it really is time to get excited about this film! We have been graced with a visual soundtrack preview of Johann Johannsson’s score for this upcoming film, please check it out below. I can tell you right now, that the score is going to be profound, and possibly a serious contender for the coveted Best Original Score Oscar.
Denis Villeneuve has directed some powerful and moving works so far, Enemy comes to mind as being an intense mind bender and Incendies as an intriguing foreign film with a massive twist at the end. He is taking on the action genre with his upcoming film, Sicario, and it will be interesting how he manages to present action in his visually compelling style. In particular pay attention to the track preview of ‘Melancholia’, there is a serious depth of emotion to this track that it’s chilling!
The cast looks solid, with Emily Blunt leading the way, and a grim looking Benicio Del Toro. Jon Bernthal is slowly making a name for himself after his rather great performance in the first couple of seasons of The Walking Dead. As a side point, who is enjoying the new TV series, Fear The Walking Dead? Anyway, Josh Brolin, sporting a goatee will add additional class to the already stellar cast.
Enjoy the visual soundtrack preview, and I sure hope it is enough to get you excited about Sicario!
