Synopsis

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 re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.

This is the sequel to the hard-hitting crime drama Sicario, which was directed by Denis Villeneuve and released in 2015. Though the original was a modest box office success ($84.8 million worldwide), the enthusiastic response led to the creation of a followup. Soldado was first announced in 2015, and the plan was for the film to center around Benicio del Toro's acclaimed hitman character. The creative team has described this as a "standalone spinoff" as opposed to a sequel or prequel, fleshing out the Sicario universe. Villeneuve was unable to return to direct due to his commitment to Blade Runner 2049. There has been talk about a third film.
