New trailer, new title: ‘Sicario Day of the Soldado’ with Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin

The Sicario sequel, nicknamed Sicario 2 as first, then Soldado, most recently Sicario 2: Soldado and now re-titled to Sicario: Day of the Soldado with the release of a new trailer.

In the sequel, the drug war on the U.S./Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. Federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) join forces to fight the war.

Now Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah) steps behind the camera as director with original screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, who also wrote Hell or High Water and helmed last year’s Wind River, returning to pen the script.

USA Today debuted a new trailer and revealed new plot details for the sequel: The film picks up with Del Toro’s revenge-fuelled Alejandro when he’s “hired again by CIA operative Matt Graver (Brolin) to start a war between dueling cartels by kidnapping Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner), the teenage daughter of infamous kingpin Carlos Reyes. When the mission is exposed, and Graver orders Alejandro to terminate Isabela, the killer’s cold façade cracks.”

Writer Taylor Sheridan has teased some story details about the sequel during an interview with Collider.

“One of the producers called me and said, ‘If you were to do a sequel, how would you do it?’ and when he first brought it up I thought,’ Well of course you’re asking me.’ And then I had an idea, and I said, ‘Look you can’t really do a sequel, but I sure would love to see what happened if these guys didn’t have a chaperone.’ Because basically they’re operating within the United States, so I played with some actual laws that exist and found a way that they could operate more or less legally within the U.S. But they had a chaperone. What happens if they weren’t in the U.S. and they didn’t have a chaperone? How bad or good would that work out? You’ve seen Sicario, good isn’t going to factor into it too much.”

Sicario: Day of the Soldado also stars Catherine Keener and Matthew Modine and opens in theaters on June 29, 2018.

Here’s the official synopsis for Sicario: Day of the Soldado:

“In Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the drug war on the US – Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) reteams with the mercurial Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro).”
