"Sicario: Day of the Soldado" Trailer Shows A Drug War No One Asked For

68

The second installment the 2015 film Sicario is here and it’s got a new title. Sicario: Day the Soldado still sees Benicio del Toro still playing Alejandro who has kidnapped the daughter the infamous drug kingpin Carlos Reyes, as a move that sparks a war with the Mexican cartels.

When the move gets exposed and Alejandro is told to abort the mission and kill Carlos’ daughter Isabela, it seems as though his history killing can’t continue. 

“I think it’s just more severe, man. All the way around. I think the characters are more severe,” screenwriter Taylor Sheridan said  the film. “I think the movie is more severe. I think it’s just much bigger. It’s just a bigger scope film. Like I said, when I saw it it was like Sicario felt like a small movie to me, even though it was a very intimate movie. I’ve always said I don’t understand why bigger movies can’t be just as intimate, if not more intimate. Why do they have to be less emotional? I think Soldado‘s a perfect example that. I think it’s extremely emotional. I think it’s extremely tense and it deals with similar subject matters.”

The Stefano Sollima-directed film hits theatres on June 29th. Peep the trailer below.
