If you watched movies in 2015 (let’s hope you did) you probably saw the crime-thriller Sicario. It was one of the better movies of 2015, and it was a surprise box office hit. It made $84 million worldwide against a budget of just $30 million, and it received outstanding reviews from critics.
Now the sequel is here, and the trailer looks incredible. Josh Brolin has called Sicario 2: Soldado, a “more severe” and “much bigger” film than the first. Emily Blunt starred in the first film, but it’s Benicio Del Toro and Brolin taking bigger roles in this sequel.
The New York Times explains:
“Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro reprise their roles as a federal agent and a shadowy operative, respectively. When the American government declares drug cartels to be terrorist organizations, the two aim to take down the kingpins by any means, legal or otherwise. ‘Turning you loose,’ Mr. Brolin’s character tells Mr. del Toro’s. ‘No rules this time.'”
Even though Denis Villeneuve didn’t return for this sequel, we still have high hopes. The film is expected to hit theaters June 28, 2018. Check out the trailer below..
