The War On Drugs Just Got Bigger In Sicario 2

Published

on

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.

Del Toro spoke to EW about the growth of his character in the sequel.

We learn from Alejandro in Sicario that he was a man who was motivated by revenge, right? And then in Soldado, he gets selected to a new assignment by Josh Brolin and then at some point he’s at a crossroads in that situation where he either has to follow orders or make the right decision, and so that’s kind of where the character’s stuck, you know? And that’s the cool thing about the character, is that he’s got to make a decision and then the consequences will follow if he goes this way or the other way, so I would say that’s the difference for the character in this movie versus the Alejandro in Sicario.

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.

New Tomb Raider Shows Off Lara Croft’s Backstory

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. The film will feature a younger version of Lara Croft focusing on her first adventure as the Tomb Raider.

Warner Bros. has also released the officially plot:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.  Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class.  Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.

Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.  But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.  Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.  If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb.

Tomb Raider comes to theaters March 2018.

Kendrick Lamar Eyeing $40 Million Dollar Publishing Deal

Published

on

Kendrick Lamar is on top of the world right now. Not only did he perform at the CFB championship game, he also is slated to open up for the Grammys. 2018 is already starting out as the best year ever for Kendrick, but he can add to that with a new publishing deal.

According to Billboard, Lamar and TDE are listening to offers now that Lamar is done with his Warner Bros deal.

Top Dawg Entertainment, which manages the rapper-songwriter, is considering offers between $20 million and $40 million. The value would depend on the terms of the deal. One bidder has offered $28 million, a source tells Billboard, while another source cited a $23 million offer that included $11 million upon signing. Such offers would likely be for Lamar’s entire catalog, but the terms Lamar’s camp is seeking weren’t clear.

Last year, Kendrick had total album sales of 1.13 million units, as well as 2.63 million track sales, according to Nielsen Music. His album consumption units (album sales plus track equivalent albums plus streaming equivalent albums) tallied 4.135 million units.
