Before Soldado even begins filming, Sollima and all involved are already considering a Sicario 3, which, if it happens, would round out a trilogy of standalone films.

Sicario isn’t the kind of film that demands a sequel, but there’s no denying the horrifying allure of the world it depicts. Even when you’re disgusted by what’s on screen, you simply cannot look away. You’re drawn into the nightmare. The story of America’s war on drugs, and the story of how the drug trade has terrorized and decimated entire communities in Mexico, is bigger than a single movie.

So there’s plenty of material for a Sicario sequel to dive into and now that sequel has a title: Soldado, the Spanish word for soldier. It also has a new director, since Sicario‘s Denis Villeneuve has officially moved on.

sicario 2

Sicario was one of 2015’s best quiet successes. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s drug war thriller never made a huge splash, but it made dozens of tiny splashes, impressing audiences and critics alike while flying under the radar. The film received enthusiastic reviews, nabbed three Oscar nominations, and grossed $80 million worldwide against a budget of only $30 million. /Film’s staff declared it the eleventh best film of 2015. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Now, producers Molly SmithTrent Luckinbill, and Thad Luckinbill have confirmed that a sequel is in development and that they expect original stars Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin to reprise their roles.

Sicario visual effects

If you haven’t ventured out to theaters to see the drug trafficking action thriller Sicario, allow me to recommend that you stop dragging your feet and take a chance on what may be one of the best films of the year. It’s an intense, white knuckle flick featuring a bad ass performance from Emily Blunt, and a scene-stealing turn from Benicio del Toro.

And when you see the film, you probably won’t realize there are actually a bunch of impressive, unnoticeable visual effects in the movie. But a Sicario visual effects reel from Oblique FX shows just what was real and what was digitally created. Having just seen the movie recently, I was floored after learning just how many visual effects were employed. However, if you haven’t seen Sicario, beware of minor spoilers. Read More »
