Drinking throughout. Near the beginning Nick gets drunk and embarrasses his daughter at her birthday party because he’s upset. The part where he gets spiked with a paralytic against might also be triggering because he acts extremely drunk

No but Nick gets very close when he is succumbing to a paralytic agent and has to climb out a window and edge along to another one. One of the CIA agents says “he’s dead” and Nick says “I can’t feel my legs… like rubber”, but ultimately he makes it

*Warning Spoilers Ahead* Emetophobe here. This movie is SAFE no *v. There is a brief mention of feeling *s. 1) Nic had a hangover and Javi asked him on a drive. Next scene in the car, Nic complaints that he's not feeling well and then coughs once, feeling *s, but it does not escalate from there.

There is a scene (23 mins in) where Nick walks into the pool after having a crisis relating to his career, he sinks to the bottom and stays there, resulting in Javi jumping in to pull him up. I wouldn't say this is his intention, however, it does have certain imagery that can be triggering.

Two people appear to be the first to die. One of them (white man) we see slumped over and it’s ambiguous but seems like he’s dead. The other (black woman) then gets shot and we see her motionless on the ground. If the guy slumped over isn’t dead, and we take this question to be more about a black person dying first regardless of gender, then I would say yes. If the guy slumped over is dead, then the answer to this question is no, but sort of on a technicality. The black woman dies on screen and dramatically. It really stands out and makes me want to say yes to this question.
