So Sicario got a sequel for some reason, and it comes out next week. It's directed by Italian director Stefano Sollima, who has mostly worked on TV shows. However, Taylor Sheridan, the writer of the original Sicario, Hell or High Water, and Wind River penned the screenplay, and Benicio del Toro (who I personally think should have received an Oscar nomination for the original) and Josh Brolin are back too. Currently sitting at 68% on RT with 19 reviews and 62 on Metacritic from 10 reviews. I have heard that Denis Villenueve, the director of the original, liked this film, so make of that what you will.

I hate the title. Why not just call it “Soldado” or “Day of the Soldado”? Beyond monetary gains that could be made off name association, of course.

Yeah, I think Soldado should’ve been the way to go. The James Bond movies don’t always need to emphasize the 007 in the title but people don’t have a problem finding those. They just ended up making a deeper hole for themselves by making the title sound even more generic.
