'Sicario: Day of the Soldado' trailer takes us back to the border

Sony Pictures has brought online the trailer for “Sicaro, Day of the Soldado,” the big screen sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed 2015 thriller. Check it out in the player above.

In “Sicario, Day of the Soldado,” the series begins a new chapter. In the drug war, there are no rules – and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter to inflame the conflict – but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for.

Directed by Stefano Sollima, “Sicario, Day of the Soldado” also stars Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Catherine Keener. Taylor Sheridan, the Academy Award nominated screenwriter behind the original, returns to provide the new screenplay.

“Sicario, Day of the Soldado” hits theaters June 29, 2018.
