5 Movies Like Sicario 2: Sequels Minus a Main Character

Sicario 2: Soldado (AKA Day of the Soldado) is coming out soon, with stars Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprising their roles – but not Emily Blunt, who played the main character in the first movie. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at 5 other sequels that were noticeably missing a main character.

SPEED 2 (Jan de Bont, 1997)

Keanu Reeves wisely turned the opportunity to reprise his role as daredevil cop Jack Traven in what is generally considered to be one of the worst sequels ever made – although you could argue if has a lot of ‘so bad, it’s good’ value going for it.

2 FAST 2 FURIOUS (John Singleton, 2003)

Although Vin Diesel would return in later years and remains a cornerstone of The Fast and the Furious franchise to this day, he was noticeably absent from the first sequel, which saw the late Paul Walker team up with Tyrese Gibson to bust a big time criminal.

THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK (Steven Spielberg, 1997)

Another case of main characters skipping a sequel, as both Sam Neill and Laura Dern came back for Jurassic Park III, but passed on The Lost World. Fortunately, Jeff Goldblum was still here, bringing in the trademark Dr. Ian Malcolm charm.

THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR (Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, 2016)

A rare case where the title of the movie itself is missing a main character, this sequel to Snow White and The Huntsman dropped Kristen Stewart’s Snow White entirely, opting to focus on Chris Hemsworth’s character instead. It was a wise move, since Winter’s War went on to win Best Picture and become the highest grossing movie of all time.

True story.

Will Smith didn’t return for the sequel to Independence Day, prompting a swift off-screen death for his character. Jeff Goldblum, however, was still game to protect the Earth from those pesky aliens. Checkmate.
