Denis Villeneuve‘s Sicario was a visceral experience which divided the critics, we loved it but still had our reservations. Amazingly later this month Sicario 2: Soldado will be released in UK and Irish cinema with many cinephiles not realizing there is a sequel.
Lionsgate has gone for a low key promotion this time, with a new director Stefano Sollima (The Gomorrah). He looks to capture the gritty visceral tone of the first film which is good news for fans.
To amp up the interest for the film, Lionsgate Films has released a sneak peek clip called ‘The Prize‘. Which Alex Graver (Josh Brolin) and Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) attempt to kidnap the daughter of the kingpin that killed Alejandro’s family, things get a little explosive…
In Sicario 2: Soldado, the drug war on the US – Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) reteams with the mercurial Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro).
Sicario 2: Soldado will be released in the UK and Irish cinemas June 29th 2018. The movie also stars Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Catherine Keener and Matthew Modine.
