SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO - Official Trailer #3.
A terrorist suicide bombing in a Kansas City grocery store kills fifteen people. In response, SFOD-D operators are deployed to engage, seize and arrest smugglers suspected of trafficking the suicide bombers through the US-Mexico border. The United States government responds by authorizing CIA officer Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) to apply extreme measures to combat Mexican drug cartels who are suspected of having smuggled the terrorists across the border. Graver and the Department of Defense (Matthew Modine) decide the best option is to instigate a war between the major cartels, and Graver recruits black operative Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro) for the mission. Gillick assassinates a high-profile lawyer of the Matamoros cartel in Mexico City while Graver and his team captures Isabel Reyes (Isabela Merced), the daughter of the kingpin of the Matamoros' rival, Carlos Reyes (who ordered the killing of Gillick's family in the events leading up to the previous film), in a false flag operation. Graver also contacts arms dealer Andy Wheeldon (Shea Whigham) to purchase and secure combat drones, Blackhawk helicopters, mercenaries and communication equipment to aid him in his mission of combating the Mexican cartels as ordered by his superiors.
Graver, Gillick and their team take Isabel to a safe house in Texas. They stage a DEA raid and pretend to rescue her, making her believe that she had been captured by the Matamoros cartel. They take her to an American military base while the team organise her return to Mexico. They plan to leave her in a Mexican Federal Police depot located inside territory controlled by her father's rivals to further escalate the inter-cartel conflict. However, after they cross into Mexico, the police escort turns against them and attack the American armoured vehicles. Graver and his team kill 25 corrupt Mexican policemen to escape the ambush.
