The biggest bait and switch behind 2015’s Sicario was the shift in narrative from FBI operative Kate Macer’s (Emily Blunt) point of view to the vengeance mission from Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro). Alejandro warned Kate that she is unfit to battle with an environment filled with wolves (aka the drug cartels) since she is too focused on the law.
But barring a surprise cameo, Blunt is not featured in Sicario 2: Soldado, which means the gloves are completely off. With federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin), a man who doesn’t mind bending a few rules to dole out his brand of enforcement, and Alejandro reteaming to take down another group of terrorists, terrorists south of the U.S. border should be very concerned.
Sicario 2: Soldado, which is once again penned by Taylor Sheridan (Wind River), hits theaters June 29, 2018. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
