"Sicario" was helmed by Denis Villeneuve, who is busy directing the "Blade Runner" sequel, "Blade Runner 2049".
The script was written by David Hale. If you were a "Sons of Anarchy" fan, you’ll know him better as Deputy Chief David Hale from seasons one to three.
Part of the score was inspired by the music from "Jaws".
The film received Oscar nominations for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best Sound Editing.
It was also nominated for three BAFTAs.
An entire border replica was built for the border shootout scene.
Josh Brolin, who plays Matt Graver, initially turned down his role.
A sequel, entitled "Soldado", has been announced, focusing on Benicio Del Toro’s character, Alejandro.
