The war on drugs just got a lot bigger in Sicario 2: Soldado. Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin return in the sequel to 2015 runaway hit, Sicario.
Sicario focused on Emily Blunt’s F.B.I. agent Kate Macer finding herself recruited into an off-the-books DEA task force by C.I.A. Agent Matt Graver played by Josh Brolin. Things start to take a terrible turn when Gravers brings in Benicio Del Toro’s Alejandro character to do some dirty work.
In the sequel, Blunt’s character does not return. But we get to see Alejandro and Graver operating with no oversight. The war on drugs has escalated, and the cartels are escorting terrorists over the U.S. and Mexico border. Graver is asked to step in and help take care of the problem, with one of his new bosses played by Catherine Keener.
Sicario 2: Soldado stars Benicio Del Toro, Josh Borlin, Catherine Keener, Jeffrey Donovan, and Isabela Moner. Sicario 2: Soldado is set for June 26th, 2018.
