sicario day of the soldado early buzz

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie.

Fans were understandably skeptical about the sequel directed by Stefano Sollima, but the Sicario Day of the Soldado early buzz proves that their worries were unfounded. Here are what critics have to say about the new movie.

David Leitch interview

David Leitch, the co-founder of 87Eleven, has just finished directing (and co-directing) three of the most notable American action movies of the last few years. The former stuntman brings his eye for action and visually appealing worlds, as shown by Atomic Blonde and (his uncredited work on) John Wick, to Deadpool 2. Leitch not only takes the franchise’s action and scope to another level, but also adds a little more personality to Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and friends, including newcomers Cable (Josh Brolin), Domino (Zazzie Beetz), and Russell (Julian Dennison).

Originally, Leitch was interested in developing the X-Force movie, but after a few weeks of working on his pitch, Deadpool 2 came his way. After a warm reception from audiences and critics, we had the opportunity to speak with Leitch on the movie’s opening day about crafting the sequel’s action, how the first movie influenced some of his choices, and one X-Men easter egg that was cut from the movie.

Below, check out our David Leitch interview, which contains a few spoilers.

deadpool 2 spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: David Leitch’s surprisingly funny Deadpool 2.)

“This is a family film,” Deadpool tells us early on in Deadpool 2. It is, of course, a joke – a movie loaded with vulgar jokes and ultra-violence can’t really be a “family film.” And yet, there’s an air of truth to this. Because a family indicates growth, and growth is exactly what Deadpool 2 showcases. For all its flaws – like the first film, it’s never quite as funny or subversive as it thinks it is – Deadpool 2 takes the meta world created by the original Deadpool, and builds upon it. It finds new ways to tell an old joke, and for that, it’s (mostly) a success.

Deadpool 2 Easter Eggs

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch breaks down a scene from the comedic comic book sequel. Plus, get a load of hundreds of Easter eggs and comic references you might have missed in the movie. And don’t miss stars Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin recreating The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with James Corden and hurling playground insults at each other across the pond.

First up, director David Letich talks us through this scene from Deadpool 2 where the Merc with a Mouth and the X-Men known as Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead show up to help contain a situation involving a mutant named Russell, trying to call himself Firefist. He provides some insight into the scene in question including some details from behind the scenes.

Next up, Mr. Sunday Movies takes on the herculean task of trying to lock down hundreds of Easter eggs, comic references and cameos from this fourth wall-breaking movie. This includes connections to other X-Men movies, comic book clues and hints, possible links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more.

While on the publicity tour for Deadpool 2, the film’s co-star Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to have some fun with a a parody of the classic western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. However, Corden wasn’t too happy about being labeled as “the ugly” one of the group, no matter how accurate it might be in this specific case.

Finally, over at BBC Radio, Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin took turns throwing out playground insults at each other. Reynold takes digs at Brolin’s age while Brolin tries to knock down how funny Reynolds thinks he is. It’s quite the amusing sparring match, but nothing they say really tops their adversarial relationship in Deadpool 2.
