Sony’s new trailer for Sicario: Day Of The Soldado with Benicio Del Toro, returning as undercover operative Alejandro Gillick, and Josh Brolin, back as CIA agent Matt Graver, is all about going to war. The sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s celebrated crime drama gets a new, more sequel-friendly title, and an incredibly menacing new trailer. It’s war on everyone this time.
Sony’s first trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado, shows Benicio del Toro returning as undercover operative Alejandro Gillick and Josh Brolin as CIA agent Matt Graver. The film is the sequel to the 2015 Denis Villeneuve-directed drug-cartel movie starring Emily Blunt. It’s rumored to be part of a trilogy of films.
The first trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s new film Hail, Caesar! was recently released and is a meta-comedy starring pretty much everyone in Hollywood.
Every week countless trailers go unnoticed or unreported. Trailer’s are an art form in itself, and can be just as entertaining, if not sometimes more, than the actual films, so they deserve their own recognition. That’s why every week we sort through them for you guys, and put the ones we feel you should watch here in our Trailer Roundup.
Paramount Pictures has just released the first trailer for Jason Reitman’s new film, Labor Day. Based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Maynard, the film follows a depressed mother Adele (Kate Winslett) and her teenage son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) who are forced to take in an escaped prisoner played by Josh Brolin. As the Labor Day weekend goes on their relationship begins to change drastically. Joining them is a solid supporting cast in Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of Shield), J.K. Simmons (Spiderman, Juno), and Tobey Maguire (Spiderman). The film is being given a limited release on Christmas day, presumably to boost Oscar potential (Plausible, as Winslett and Brolin both give stellar performances) and availability will expand later in January.
I actually got a chance to catch the film at the Chicago International Film Festival and for the most part I really liked it. If you’re a fan of Jason Reitman’s previous works, (Excluding perhaps the polarizing Young Adult), you should find this among his best. This first trailer does a good job of conveying the mood the picture’s going for, while giving away very little of the plot:
I feel the theatrical trailer gives away too much of the story, and since it’s all about the character’s relationships and the events that unfold, I’d suggest skipping it.
And finally, in case you can’t get enough of Labor Day, here’s a clip from the film that was released a couple of weeks ago:
