'Sicario 2: Soldado' Trailer Promises No Rules in Sequel

Preparing to fight the danger escalating on the U.S.-Mexico border, Josh Brolin’s Matt Graver assures Benicio Del Toro's Alejandro, "You're gonna help us start a war."

A new chapter begins in the sequel to drug-cartel thriller Sicario, Soldado, the trailer for which debuted Tuesday.

In the follow-up to the 2015 film, FBI agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) returns to reteam with Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) as the drug war taking place on the U.S.-Mexico border has escalated dangerously, with the cartels now trafficking terrorists across the border.

“You wanna see this thing through? I’m gonna have to get dirty,” Brolin’s Graver teases, as he assures Del Toro’s Alejandro that there are “no rules” this time and that he’s setting him “loose.” “You’re gonna help us start a war,” Brolin says, before telling Alejandro that such a battle will be with “everyone.”

Stefano Sollima will direct the film, with Basil Iwanyk, Black Label’s Molly Smith and Thad and Trent Luckinbill, and Edward McDonnell serving as producers. Lionsgate and Black Label are co-financing.

Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Catherine Keener also star.

Sony is set to release Sicario 2: Soldado in theaters in June 29, 2018.
