Latest Sicario 2 Trailer Is Bleak, Bloody, And Exciting

"No rules this time."


2015's Sicario was one of the best thrillers of recent years, and it led to director Denis Villeneuve making the high profile sci-fi movies Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. The sequel Sicario: Day of the Soldado hits theaters in June, and although Villeneuve and star Emily Blunt aren't returning, co-stars Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro are back.

A new trailer has arrived, following December's first promo. It reveals plenty of the plot--perhaps too much, so be careful if you don't want anything spoilt beforehand. But it looks like another dark, tense, and exciting film, with Brolin's morally ambiguous CIA agent starting a drug war in Mexico with the help of del Toro's mysterious enforcer. Check it out below:

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is released on June 29. It is directed by Stefano Sollima, who is best known for the acclaimed Italian crime show Gomorrah. The cast also includes Isabela Moner (Transformers: The Last Knight), Catherine Keener (Get Out), Matthew Modine (Stranger Things), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (The Magnificent Seven), and Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice).

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, del Toro spoke about making the sequel with a different director. "Stefano had to come in [to a situation] where Josh and myself have played these characters before," he said. "So he had to deal a little bit with of that. I think he did a really good job of allowing both Josh and myself to put ourselves on the table about the characters and how they would react in situations and all that stuff. So it was very inclusive that way."
