A sequel to Denis Villeneuve and Taylor Sheridan’s intense and surprising 2015 success Sicario remains unnecessary, but Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima’s follow-up (and second film in a now planned trilogy), Sicario: Day of the Soldado, takes the characters into intriguingly stickier moral territory.
Avengers: Infinity War is a huge payoff for a film franchise that spans 10 years, 18 films, and dozens of characters. And for those of us who waited through all the end-credit scenes of every Marvel film, trying to learn everything we could about this universe of superheroes, Infinity War is a very satisfying ride, bringing together a lot of storytelling that’s been developed movie by movie, year over year.
All the major players have been introduced, the stage has been set, and Marvel has finally debuted the first look at what fan can expect from Avengers: Infinity War in the first trailer for the new film, which opens on May 4, 2018.
Happy New Year, movie fans. We’re jumping back into Blu-ray reviews this week with a look at Sicario, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, End of the Tour, The Walk, and True Detective: The Complete Second Season.
