First ‘Sicario 2: Soldado’ Trailer Brings the Firepower

Going back into the land of wolves.

The original Sicario – which starred such names like Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin – was an often bleak and brutal thriller abut the war on drugs. Praised for its relentless mood, camera work and performances, the film wound up being a quiet hit financially and critically. Much to everyone surprise, a sequel was announced not long afterwards, though director Denis Villeneuve would not return due to previous commitments with Blade Runner 2049. But writer Taylor Sheridan (Hell Or High Water, Wind River) would still stay on to continue the story while new director Stefano Sollima would be taking reins for this installment. And after much delay, we finally have a trailer. Take a look:

Sicario 2: Soldado will be released on the 29th of June, with Sony having distribution rights instead of Lionsgate.
