Blunt looked stunning in her pink Prada column gown with metallic sequins. The striking design reminiscent of mesh and scales had red satin trims around the sleeves and neckline. It also featured a cut-out at the back which was adorned by two red ribbons. The actress shone as she strutted down the carpet in London’s Leicester Square despite the rainy weather. She wore a ruby red lipstick and styled her hair in a very sophisticated braided updo. The Sicario actress was joined by co-actor Benicio Del Toro to promote the film directed by Denis Villeneuve. Blunt plays an FBI agent in the film who is asked by the government to help fight drug syndicates on the border of US and Mexico. Her co-star, del Toro portrays her adviser from Mexico while Josh Brolin plays a suspicious government operative who works for the anti-drug cartel division. Blunt told Entertainment Weekly that she was shocked by “the sheer brutality of the imprint that (cartels) leave on people’s lives,” she admitted that it was “really disarming, really shocking.” Before she came back to London to promote Sicario, the actress also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month and talked about her citizenship. She said people kept asking her if she was thrilled now that she formally became a U.S citizen but replied, “It wasn’t! It was sad!” and then added, “I like being British.”
The film earned positive reviews and Blunt’s performance was praised as well. It has been reported that the studio would be pushing for an Oscar nomination. Also, Lionsgate is thinking of creating a sequel that will focus on del Toro’s character in the movie.
