Set in a volatile area along the U.S.-Mexico border, Sicario stars Emily Blunt as an FBI agent named Kate, who is recruited for a clandestine mission as part of the war on drugs. In this new clip, she and her team conduct a raid looking for hostages, but when they enter the home they soon find something horrifying hidden in the walls. 

“She’s a female cop, and she’s doing the best she f—ing can in a situation that is impossible,” Blunt told EW about her character. “You don’t really have the kick-ass things where you throw a punch and say the perfect thing and know the right comeback. It’s not that kind of film. It’s a stripping down of somebody’s morals.”

Sicario will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before hitting U.S. theaters on Sept. 18. For more on Sicario, check out EW’s Fall Movie Preview.
