Rodeo FX is delighted to have been tagged with the visual effects for Sicario : Day of the Soldado. In the follow-up to Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 drug cartel thriller, directed by Stefano Sollima, the drug war on the US-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro).

As the sole vendor on this movie, we produced 70 shots which feature various types of visual effects including muzzle flash, bullet impacts, full CG environments and matte paintings, and also military and civil vehicles to populate shots.

It was all about creating invisible visual effects on this movie to enhance its war genre and make it more immersive.

Congratulations to Alexandre Lafortune, our VFX Supervisor and to our team !
