The drug war gets a lot more out of control in Sony’s new trailer for Sicario: Day of the Soldado, with Benicio Del Toro returning as undercover operative Alejandro Gillick and Josh Brolin back as CIA agent Matt Graver.
Early in the bleak trailer, Del Toro’s character – whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin – guns down a cartel operative in broad daylight on a street after pulling off his mask and saying ‘Adios’ to the victim.
The pair, who starred with Emily Blunt in 2015’s Sicario, find themselves back in the middle of the violent war against drugs along the United States-Mexico border. With the drug cartels now smuggling terrorists across the U.S. border, they decide to pit the cartels against each other.
The cast includes Matthew Modine, Catherine Keener, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Jeffrey Donovan. Blunt and director Denis Villeneuve opted not to return. Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima helms the movie, written again by Taylor Sheridan.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado opens on June 29.
