The trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado, featuring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprising their roles as morally compromised DEA agent Matt Graver and his shadowy associate Alejandro Gillick, has arrived. The new film—which sees Italian TV director Stefano Sollima taking over for Denis Villeneuve—has been described by writer Taylor Sheridan as even darker and grittier than the original film. (Like “Sicario on steroids,” even.) And this first look seems to live up to that promise, as Graver and Gillick are given license to play as dirty as they want in the war against Mexico’s drug cartels. And that, friends, is very dirty.
Sicario 2: Soldado is set to debut in theaters on June 29, 2018.
