Are movie trailer editors big Stomp fans?

Plot details for Soldado have thus far been scarce, but Sheridan has finally shed some light on what Del Toro and Brolin’s characters will be up to in the new film.
The upcoming Sicario sequel has added a new cast member: Transformers: The Last Knight’s Isabela Moner. Moner joins Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Katherine Keener, and it actually sounds like she’ll be a pretty pivotal character.

But my third? That one I might waste on unlimited money, so I could continue to make movies that solidifies Emily Blunt as the biggest action star of our generation. Forget Scarlett Johansson; after The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Sicario, and Edge of Tomorrow, Blunt is the woman to beat in my book.
