FBI agent Matt Graver calls on mysterious operative Alejandro Gillick when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the U.S. border. The war escalates even further when Alejandro kidnaps a top kingpin's daughter to deliberately increase the tensions. When the young girl is seen as collateral damage, the two men will determine her fate as they question everything that they are fighting for.
The drug war gets a lot more out of control in Sony’s new trailer for “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” with Benicio Del Toro returning as undercover operative Alejandro Gillick and Josh Brolin back as CIA agent Matt Graver Early in the bleak trailer, Del Toro’s character — whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin — guns down a cartel operative in broad daylight on a street after pulling off his mask and saying “Adios” to the victim. The pair, who starred with Emily Blunt in 2015’s “Sicario,” finds themselves back in the middle of the violent war against drugs along the United States-Mexico border. With the drug cartels now smuggling terrorists across the U.S. border, they decide to pit the cartels against each other. “You want to see this thing through? I’m going to have to get …. dirty,” Brolin tells a roomful of government officials.
We have your exclusive first look at the new poster for Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the follow up to the 2015 action-thriller that brings back the original's Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin to star. Sicario creator Taylor Sheridan also returns to script. The movie's official synopsis says Sicario: Day of the Soldado "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."
"“Day of the Soldado” finds Alejandro being recruited once again by Matt Graver to kidnap the daughter of an infamous drug kingpin in order to start a war between dealing cartels that will hopefully wipe both of them off the map. When the plan is exposed, however, Alejandro is ordered to execute the daughter (Isabela Moner), but not even a trained assassin like Alejandro is willing to murder a child. “He has the chance for an eye for an eye, but sees a young girl going through what his [executed] daughter went through,” Del Toro tells USA Today about the sequel. “He has to decide to follow orders or protect the girl. It’s just one thing about this screenplay that makes it interesting.”
