Sicario: Day Of The Soldado ended in quite a way that it was hinting for the next series. Sure enough, prior to the release of Soldado in June, Trent Luckinbill, the producer of Sicario, stated that a third series is likely to be produced. Sicario 2018 was dedicated in memory of Johann Johannsson, who was the first film’s composer. Unfortunately, he could not be with us in this sequel, as he left the world in February 2018.
Starring Emily Blunt as Kate Macer who is an FBI agent, Daniel Kaluuya as Reggi who is the partner of Macer, Josh Brolin as the CIA specialist Matt Graver and Benicio del Toro as Alexandra, the hitman, Sicario first released in 2015 following the US war on drugs in the Mexican border. The drug trade of Manuel Diaz was attempted by the CIA to be destroyed, and he also wanted to eliminate Diaz’s boss-Alarcon’s drug empire. Alejandro also had some personal scores to settle with Alarcon.
Although the 2015 Sicario and 2018 Sicario: Day Of The Soldado had the same characters, the movies had no similarities between them as they had no continuation of events or the same point of view. Both Sicario 2015 and Sicario 2018 can be watched as pure standalone even if they are happening in the same universe.
However, the Sicario Day Of The Soldado 2018’s ending showed room for a third sequel. Agent Matt and Alejandro Gillick came back in Sicario 2018, which was more cruel and violent than the first movie. The movie started with a suicide bombing in Kansas City. During the length of the story, Alejandro kills one of the gang’s leader and kidnaps the daughter of the other gang.
Sicario 2018’s end showed room for a sequel, and we fans believe that it would be a continuation as Alejandro confronted Miguel and confirmed that he wanted to become a Soldado. Not only that, there were many other scenes that showed the potential to have a continuation in the next sequel.
When Can We Expect Emily Blunt In Sicario 3?
Many fans are expecting Emily Blunt’s character, Kate Macer, to be in sicario 3. Taylor Sheridan, the screenwriter, explains that the Blunt’s character arc was already completed in the first movie, so aimlessly bringing her back for the sequel would be disrespecting the actress. He said that since ‘it would be great to see her again’, Emily Blunt’s character would most likely be in sicario 3. As there is no script for it as of now, nothing is determined.
As of now, what we can be sure of is that a new sequel for Sicario will be coming out. But what we don’t know yet is its release date. According to the release of the last two movies. Sicario 3 is likely to be released in 2021 or 2022.
