Sicario Day of the Soldado clip

Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the sequel to the anxiety-inducing Sicario, is one of the summer’s dark horse films.

Sicario Day of the Soldado Trailer

The Sicario sequel has a new trailer, and a new title to match. Sicario: Day of the Soldado continues the story of Denis Villeneuve’s intense 2015 drug cartel drama. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro return, while Emily Blunt decides to sit this one out. Watch the Sicario Day of the Soldado trailer below.

Grandmaster Collector

Thor: Ragnarok bestowed many gifts upon the world: Cate Blanchett vamping it up as a villain, that priceless “get help” gag, the hilarity of Korg, and a Chris Hemsworth superhero performance that finally capitalizes on his comedic talents. But one of my personal favorite contributions was The Grandmaster, played by the always-entertaining Jeff Goldblum. The character’s fate is left hanging in the balance when the film comes to a close, but if Goldblum has his way, he’d love to see a Grandmaster Collector spin-off that teams him with Benicio del Toro‘s wonderfully weird character from Guardians of the Galaxy.

sicario 2 soldado trailer

Sicario was one of 2015’s best films, a tense thriller that turned a ruthless and critical eye at the drug war between the United States and Mexico, grounded by Emily Blunt’s idealistic young FBI agent, Kate Macy. Sicario 2: Soldado moves to tell a continuation of that story, but without the defining features that made Sicario so great. But hey, at least Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro are back.

The first trailer for the Sicario sequel, clunkily titled Sicario 2: Soldado, reintroduces Brolin’s compromised FBI agent Matt Graver and his wary ally Alejandro, the revenge-driven former cartel member, as they are tasked with kidnapping a kingpin’s daughter.

Disney and Lucasfilm already have your money next month. They know this. You know this. They can afford the luxury of keeping details about Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the dark. It feels like we’re going into Rian Johnson‘s new movie mostly blind, which is an odd feeling in 2017.

So when a new international TV spot shows up offering our first real look at Benicio del Toro‘s mysterious Star Wars character, we can’t help but take notice. Who is this guy? And why are the trailers hiding the fact that an Oscar-winning actor is among the new additions to the film’s cast?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Benicio del Toro Star Wars Character

Yesterday, Star Wars fans flocked to all sorts of retailers to get their hands on the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for the Force Friday II celebration across the world. We featured a whole list of the coolest toys you could get in stores yesterday, and one of those toys has revealed an interesting detail about a certain character who has been shrouded in secrecy.

The Last Jedi Benicio Del Toro character

Benicio del Toro is staying in the Disney family, moving from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a galaxy far, far away. The Oscar-winning actor, who does a fine job of balancing dramatic fare like Sicario with appearances in blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy, was cast in Star Wars: The Last Jedi a long time ago…but we still don’t know who he’s playing. Mysteriously codenamed “DJ” by the filmmakers, his character – a dangerous “man in black” type – has been the source of much speculation, most of which has been shot down by writer/director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm.

But now, more details are starting to trickle out about this shadowy figure.
