2015's Sicario (Spanish for "blademan" or "hitman") may be one of the most beautiful, bleak fictionalized looks at the drug war I've ever seen.

Written by Taylor Sheridan (of Wind River and Hell or High Water fame) and directed by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner: 2049), the film revolved around the mercurial Alejandro (brought to life by a hauntingly good Benicio del Toro) and his shadowy work with American federal agents (Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin) on both sides of the American border with Mexico.

With all the bluster coming from the Republican Party, Donald Trump, and Jeff Sessions about that border and on the drug war, Sicario: Day of the Soldado looks to be a very topical dramatic take on and around those issues. Sheridan wrote this new installment in the Sicario saga that sees Alejandro again teaming with his American counterparts to fight forces smuggling terrorists across the border into the United States. Stefano Sollima directs.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is slated for a June 29 theatrical release. Enjoy the trailer below.
