Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are back to take down the drug cartels in the first trailer for “Sicario 2: Soldado,” directed by Stefano Sollima.
“You wanna see this thing through? I’m going to have to get dirty,” Brolin’s character, CIA agent Matt Graver says in the trailer. “No rules this time.”
After discovering that drug cartels are now smuggling terrorists across the U.S. border, Graver and former undercover operative Alejandro (del Toro) must stop the problem.
Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Isabela Moner, Catherine Kenner and Matthew Modine also star. Taylor Sheridan wrote the screenplay.
Last year, news broke that Emily Blunt would not star in the upcoming sequel to “Sicario” titled “Soldado.” Sheridan told TheWrap, “that was my decision, and at some point I’m going to have to talk to her about it. Her arc was complete … I couldn’t figure out a way to write a character that would do her talent justice.”
“Sicario” was nominated for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best Sound Editing at the 2015 Oscars and grossed $84.9 million at the worldwide box office.
“Sicario 2: Soldado” will hit hit theaters on June 29, 2018.
