Action and thriller movies have always been a very popular genre among viewers as they have a big budget and also make a lot of money. One such movie is the upcoming American action-thriller, Sicario 3 AKA Sicario: Capos. The film is the third film in the anthology trilogy, Sicario 2015 (2015 because it was the first film in the franchise to be released on October 2, 2015). Praise for Blunt and del Toro’s performances came immediately and the second film, Sicario: Day Of The Soldier, was released on June 29, 2018, and was dedicated to the memory of Johannsson Johan, the musical composer of the first film, who died in February 2018.
Sicario received praise for its screenplay, musical score, and seemed to be getting a lot of buzz. Sicario was also nominated for Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, and Best Sound Editing at the 88th Academy Awards. No wonder producer Trent Luckinbill confirmed that a third Sicario was definitely in the works before the release of Day Of The Soldier! Here’s everything we know about Sicario 3 (Sicario: Capos) so far.
Sicario 3 (Sicario: Capos) Release Date, Plot, Cast, and More!
Sicario received praise for its direction, script, cinematography, and it should because
Sicario 2 ended with young gang member Miguel, played by Elijah Rodríguez, being forced to shoot Alejandro, played by del Toro, who survived being shot. Sicario 3’s story will probably pick up from there. A possible apprentice relationship for the upcoming film has been established, as the final scene of the second film takes place a year later, where a recovered Alejandro apparently recruits Miguel. As a rare display of emotion made Matt, played by Brolin, disobey the strict orders of his superiors in Sicario 2, a sequel would also have to deal with the impact on his career that it faces.

Sicario 3 Release Date:
We can’t wait to see Sicario 3 and neither can you. The good news is that the premiere of the movie “ Sicario 3 ” ( Sicario: Capos ) is scheduled for autumn 2022.
Black Label Media, the producer of Sicario Capos, has confirmed that the film should go into production this year. So we may not see a finished product until late 2022 at the earliest. The studio may be taking extra precautions when assembling the upcoming film after taking into account the second film’s mixed reviews. Both behind and in front of the camera, the official title of the third film is Sicario: Capos, and there has been a lot of speculation about who will return. An exploration of how Blunt’s character evolved after the traumatic events of the original film could be a great one for the new film. The second film is generally considered less narratively interesting than the original, as Blunt’s absence was sorely felt,
Given her busy schedule, it’s hard to say if Blunt will return. However, reports say that the producers of the series are interested in bringing Blunt back into the world of Sicario. With Black Label Media coming back to be the producer, we wonder if Villeneuve will come back to the director’s chair for Sicario 3. He’d like to return, according to producer Ed McDonnell. Meanwhile, Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima made it clear in 2018 that he would not be returning for a third film.
But since the development of ‘Sicario 3’ was hinted at by the people behind the series even before the release of ‘Sicario: Day Of The Soldier’, the cast and production have had time to figure out their goals. As of now, the official details about the production and the cast are not finalized. But judging by the release dates of the last two movies, we can say that ‘Sicario 3’ should come out in late 2022 if it gets the green light soon. For now, we can just sit back and wait for an official confirmation.
Will There Be A Sicario 3 For Sure?
When the original ‘Sicario’ was released in 2015, it made quite a bit of noise in the critical realm and that was reflected in its performance at the box office as well. But when you think about the director behind the project, there is nothing to be surprised about the success of the film. Denis Villeneuve The impressive filmography speaks to the director’s vision and his ability to delve into the human psyche and the cultural undermining of society. The world of ‘Sicario’ was grim but real and the theme was political enough for such a reality.
‘Sicario’ is something that doesn’t scream franchise but we already saw a sequel in 2017 titled ‘Sicario: Day Of The Soldier’. The films in these series can be enjoyed as anthology films as they do not follow a continuous narrative. In essence, each of the films in the series can be enjoyed and experienced independently. Both films feature almost the same set of characters; however, the films share no similarities in terms of the continuation of events and point of view. ‘Sicario: Day Of The Soldier’ explores the same sociopolitical problems of the borders between Mexico and the United States when drug trafficking in the first film becomes human trafficking in the second.
Even though the stories do not necessarily follow each other, it must be taken into account that they belong to the same universe. Even the journey of the characters is intertwined. So to decide what ‘Sicario 3’ is about, we also have to talk about the previous two movies.
What Has Happened in the ‘Sicario’ Movies So Far?
‘Sicario’ features Emily Blunt as Kate Macer, the morally upstanding young FBI agent, Daniel Kaluuya as her partner Reggie, Josh Brolin as CIA specialist Matt Graver and Benicio del Toro also known as the secretive hitman Alejandro. The story follows America’s drug war on the Mexican border, as Kate’s idealistic beliefs are shattered by the bloody horror of reality. In the lawless land, she tries to follow the rules without realizing that in the wild, survival and revenge have no place for morality. The CIA tries to disrupt Manuel Díaz’s drug trade and eliminate his boss Alarcón’s drug empire. By doing so, they intend to restore a cartel’s monopoly which, in return, gives the United States greater control. But their methods are legal or moral.
Matt educates Kate on the ways of broader political and personal battles. Alejandro has personal accounts to settle with Alarcón. Hia’s personal vendetta leads him to kill, kidnap and torture people to get to Alarcón. Macer’s moral compass is shattered when he realizes how small he is in the biggest political crisis. The film has a hermetic plot, a simple and petty narrative, and a splendid background score. Blunt and del Toro’s performances received a special mention or two, as Villeneuve raised a seemingly normal level spy action thriller into something bigger.
The second film Sicario: Day Of The Soldier takes place in the same universe but does not follow the events of the previous film chronologically. But it does have agents Matt Graver and Alejandro Gillick. It begins with a suicide bombing in Kansas where innocent civilians are killed. Discovering that the terrorists are being trafficked to Mexico, the US government attempts to destroy the cartels by fueling a gang war between them. Matt, Alejandro and the team are tasked with carrying out the mission. Alejandro kills the lawyer of one gang and kidnaps the daughter of the owner of the other gang. They plan to drop her off in rival gang territory, but the betrayals continue as things escalate.
Alejandro bonds with the girl and goes against his agency’s orders to protect her. On his way to do so, he racks up body counts. In a certain turn of events, Alejandro and the girl are recognized and shot. Graver finds her and with a sudden change in her attitude decides to put her in a witness protection program. Alejandro somehow manages to save himself, kills a few more, and tracks down Miguel a year later. The second film is more violent and darker than the first. He tries to match the first’s finesse but falters a bit. Still, the film works as a relentless police thriller full of violence.
Sicario 3 Plot and Story:
The end of the second movie leaves many opportunities for a third film. Even though they all tend to stick to stand-alone movies, Sicario: Day Of The Soldier ends on such a compelling thread that the next one should try to tie it up. At the end of the second film we see Alejandro facing Miguel after a year of bloody events. He reiterates to Miguel to confirm that he wants to be a Soldier. So the third movie may be about Alejandro’s relationship with Miguel, as the master-apprentice equation becomes a very promising plot.
The most interesting possibility, however, is the return of fan-favorite Kate Macer. ‘Sicario’ established Kate’s character quite well and after being absent for the second one, we can definitely look forward to her return. It will be interesting to see the changes in her after the events she went through in the first movie. It will be very interesting to see how her life treats her and how the old ghosts have come back to haunt her. The fallout from the latest movie on Matt Graver’s character and his equation with Alejandro is also something the creators can take advantage of.
Who Is In The Cast of Sicario 3: Is Emily Blunt Coming Back?
Producer Molly Smith has confirmed that Black Label intends to have del Toro reappear. Nothing has been finalized yet though, though both Brolin and supporting actor Jeffery Donovan are expected to return for the third film. According to fans, Blunt’s hero character is also a must for a trilogy.
The end of Sicario: Day Of The Soldier leaves the possibility of Alejandro’s return which means that Benicio del Toro will be in Sicario 3. Josh Brolin’s Matt Graver may also play a big role in the upcoming movie, so count on him too. That being said, the biggest inclusion will be Emily Blunt. We feel that Kate Macer’s story is not over yet either. In that case, Blunt should return as well, especially since both Emily Blunt and the creators are considering Kate’s inclusion in Sicario 3.
