'Sicario: Days of the Soldado' (Jun. 29)
This followup to Sicario may lack Emily Blunt and the great director Denis Villeneuve behind the camera. But don't despair: Benicio Del Toro is back as Alejandro, an undercover assassin, and this time he's helping the DEA stop the flow of drugs across the Mexican border a different way. How? By kidnapping Isabela (Isabela Moner), a cartel princess, as a wedge against her kingpin daddy. Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima (TV's Gomorrah) directs the movie, again written by Taylor Sheridan, and costarring Josh Brolin as CIA manipulator. All elements are in place to make sure action dominates without skimping on a political subtext that remains scarily relevant.
