Call of Duty Movie

Last spring, we found out that Activision Blizzard Studios has ambitious plans for bringing their successful Call of Duty video game franchise to the big screen. Attempting to follow in the footsteps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video game company turned movie studio has years of movies planned, as well as television shows. But they have to begin with one movie first, and it appears they’ve finally found a director.

Activision Blizzard Studios is currently in talks with Sicario 2: Soldado director Stefano Sollima to be at the helm of the Call of Duty movie. That must mean Sollima did a good job with the sequel he inherited from Sicario director Denis Villeneuve. Read More »

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.

With director Stefano Sollima‘s sequel, writer Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) wants to ask: Without a chaperone, how bad do Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt (Josh Brolin) get?

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.
