A new trailer for the sequel to the 2015 debuted on USA Today and it reveals a bit more of the story than the teaser. CIA agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) is given carte blanche by his bosses to go after the drug cartels and that means he's got to get dirty. And getting dirty means hiring Alejandro (Del Toro) once again.
To start a war amongst the cartels, Alejandro kidnaps Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner), the teen daughter of infamous kingpin Carlos Reyes. But his cold-blooded resolve starts to crack as he spends time with the girl.
"He has the chance for an eye for an eye, but sees a young girl going through what his daughter went through," Del Toro said. "He has to decide to follow orders or protect the girl. It's just one thing about this screenplay that makes it interesting."
Stefano Sollima takes over directing duties from Denis Villeneuve, from a script by original screenwriter Taylor Sheridan ("Hell or High Water"). Matthew Modine and Catherine Keener also star.
"Sicario: Day of the Soldado" opens in theaters June 29.
FBI agent Matt Graver calls on mysterious operative Alejandro Gillick when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the U.S. border. The war escalates even further when Alejandro kidnaps a top kingpin's daughter to deliberately increase the tensions. When the young girl is seen as collateral damage, the two men will determine her fate as they question everything that they are fighting for. Read More
