Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 crime opus, Sicario, was a solid piece of work from its premiere at Cannes that year through subsequent rollouts in December and following January. It’s sequel has already begun its campaign and already looks to fare just as excellent, if not better this year with Stefano Sollima at the helm, and the brilliant penning of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan to credit once more.
For this, we have a June 29 release in store for the newly-titled Sicario 2: Day Of Soldado, featuring stars Josh Brolin and Benecio Del Toro reprising their respective roles as federal agent Matt Graver and underworld enforcer Alejandro. The narrative? The U.S. government’s unilateral war on drugs by categorizing cartels with terrorist organizations – a plan that has all the trimmings for an explosive battle and an easy win…only until an innocent girl gets caught in the crossfire.
Just who is she? And where does this leave our mercurial anti-heroic assassin played by Del Toro in the long haul? That’s a question with answers the latest official trailer now hints at with all the stimuli you can hope for in an action-packed thriller to heat up your summer properly.
Also starring are Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Catherine Keener.
