The first Sicario was a tense chess game that exposed the U.S. government’s machinations when dealing with Mexican drug cartels. It featured a memorable performance by Benicio del Toro, as a former prosecutor whose family was murdered by a cartel and, literally, nothing left but revenge (or so it seems). Now, he’s about to be “let loose.”
Fans appreciated the interplay between del Toro and the naive but proper FBI agent Emily Blunt in Sicario 1, who starts out as a government pawn but begins to realize what she’s gotten into. Those who were fans of del Toro’s performance will be pleased to learn that the sequel is soon, Sicario 2: Soldado.
According to EW, Josh Brolin called the sequel “more severe” and “much bigger” than the first movie, whereas “Benicio Del Toro would just add that while Sicario was more of a ‘really hardcore straight line,’ No 2. ‘is a little more complicated. The sequal “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” will be in theaters on June 29, 2018.
Emily Blunt will not a featured character in Sicario 2; the film will focuses on del Toro’s character, Alejandro Gillick, and Josh Brolin’s CIA agent, Matt Graver, according to industry sources. Check out the trailer below.
