Soldado Teaser Trailer

"You want to see this thing through? I'm going to have to get… dirty." Sony Pictures has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the new thriller Soldado, the sequel to Sicario, Denis Villeneuve's intense thriller set along the US-Mexico border. The title card of this says it's officially titled Sicario 2: Soldado, and not just Soldado, but either works. Emily Blunt is not back this time, as her story is complete, but Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro are back. In Soldado, the drug war has escalated as the cartels have shifted to trafficking terrorists across the border. Like pretty much all crime thrillers, this has a masked gunman (referencing Heat) and it looks slick, but I'm not sure it's going to be anywhere near as good as Sicario. I'm also a bit let down there is no lead woman in the cast, aside from Catherine Keener as a CIA boss. Still worth a watch.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Stefano Sollima's Soldado, originally from

Soldado Movie

A follow-up to the 2015 film, Sicario, which centers around the escalating war against drugs along the border of the United States and Mexico. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro are back as C.I.A. agent Matt Graver and his "man on fire" Alejandro. The drug war has escalated as the cartels have shifted to trafficking terrorists across the U.S.-Mexico border, and that's when Matt’s bosses ask him to intervene. Soldado is directed by Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima, of A.C.A.B., Suburra, and the "Gomorrha" TV series previously. The screenplay is once again written by Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario, Hell or High Water, Wind River). Sony will release Soldado in theaters everywhere starting on June 29th, 2018 next summer.

Eh...I'll wait for Netflix and Cable. The first was fantastic with Denis Villeneuve at the helm. This feels like a follow-up cash grab...

THE_RAW_ on Dec 19, 2017


Jesus, they've taken a well-crafted idea directed by a top notch director and turned it into a low-grade action film where Del Toro's character shoots people out in the open street. Denis Villeneuve made a tense thriller where the lines are blurred between legal morality and "just get the bad guy no matter what." This, well, doesn't look like that at all.

Goddamn I wish I didn't read your well crafted and reasonable comment.

Matthew on Dec 19, 2017


crap. you've already seen the finished movie. guess I won't waste my time...

ElBischoff on Dec 19, 2017


Please...You're telling me this isn't a telegraphed punch? I'm assuming you've paid as much attention to what studios are producing as I have. Some of this stuff takes seconds to decide "Oh yeah, this is just an attempt to make money, not continue a story arc." Sicarios' arc ended in Villeneuve's film. There wasn't anything left to say. This looks like a cash grab. No thanks for me. I'll maybe catch this on Netflix at 2AM when I'm having writers block.

oooooh, you're psychic! That must be even more awesome!

ElBischoff on Dec 20, 2017


Normally, I'd agree, but I can't with Taylor Sheridan still writing it. 3 solo writing credits in 3 years; with 3 separate directors. Velleneuve is by far the most accomplished and one of my favorite directors working today and had a huge hand in the perfection that is Sicario...but Sheridan directed his own script with Wind River and that's one of my favorites of 2017. Not sure of your thoughts on Wind River and Hell and High Water, but he hasn't let me down yet.

Full Conspiracy on Dec 19, 2017


Both were good. I agree. My feeling is Sicario was his best effort, Hell or High Water his second, and Wind River, though enjoyable, was his weakest. But he's never done a sequel. He's never had to expand on a story arc from established characters, and though I like Sheridan, I'm not sure he can pull it off. I guess we will see, but Del Toro shooting someone in broad daylight seems against everything he was about in the first film. I was happy with where the mysteries were left in the first film. Seems like we're getting into world building, which I don't feel that's what Sicario should be about. Just my opinion...obviously.

Quanah on Dec 19, 2017


I agree with pretty much all those points, I think I might just be a little more cautiously optimistic. The trailer seems like it did nothing for you, but it did get me pretty intrigued. I think you might be right, but I'm just hoping that it's more of a studio trailer trying to get people excited and not the movie that Sheridan and Sollima have actually made. We'll find out soon-ish enough, I suppose.

I might be wrong, but I liked what I saw. Del Toro is an awesome actor. And I am always fascinated by the guerrilla between the drugs Cartel and the Weapons Cartel...

tarek on Dec 20, 2017


Well the attack is supposed to look like a sloppy hit instead of a calculated hit. That explains the shooting method.

HELL to the YEAH!~

TIME CRISIS!!! Blat-blat-blat-blat-blat!!!!~~~~~~

DAVIDPD on Dec 19, 2017


It's a sad occasion for US filmmakers to use every possible crime on this world as an excuse to squeeze money out of it. That's how this looks ...

shiboleth on Dec 19, 2017


Stefano Sollima is Italian.

Xerxexx on Dec 20, 2017


and he did the awesome Gomorra.

tarek on Dec 20, 2017


Which really was awesome. But I am not very confidential about this one. It does look repetitive ...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2017


Well, Sony Pictures isn't. And even tougher artists have broken their teeth in Hollywood ...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2017


Looks good.

Pincode on Dec 19, 2017


Kicking off the Sicario Cinematic Universe.

capitandelespacio on Dec 20, 2017


Looks good but what's up with Brolin's character? Anyone want to give some character analysis...
