The sequel to Sicario sees Benicio Del Toro's killer, Alejandro, return and resume his personal vendetta against the Mexican drug lords who killed his family. While the first trailer largely reminded audiences how the Sicario world looks and feels, the new trailer's here to deliver more.
Italian director Stefano Sollima (Suburra, Gomorrah) has big shoes to fill, helming a sequel to a standout picture from acclaimed filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049). The film featured Emily Blunt as an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who gets plunged head-first into a drug war. Yet, as much as I enjoyed Sicario, I wasn't exactly clamoring for a sequel. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin's daughter (Isabela Moner, Transformers: The Last Knight), who ends up being the target of Graver and his team when she's deemed expendable. As revealed in those interviews and the new trailer, Alejandro's newest mission could put him in the cross-hairs.
With Emily Blunt not returning for the follow-up to 2015's Sicario, the two actors take the spotlight in the latest trailer for Sicario: Day of the Soldado. Given the current political climate in the USA, it also paves the way nicely for Sicario 3: The Day of the Wall. "You want to see this thing through?"
Sicario: Day of the Soldado is due for release on June 29, 2018 and if it can even just come close to matching the magic of that first film, it could easily be one of the best films of the year.
"In Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the drug war on the US - Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border". Third, a dozen or so new pictures show Del Toro as well as agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) engaged in some of the action.
