Denzel Washington returns in fighting form as former covert operative Robert McCall in the new Equalizer 2 trailer. Ironically this is the first time that Washington has made a sequel and we certainly hope it won’t be his last.
Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career, with director Antoine Fuqua once again at the helm. As a retired operative with a conscience, Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed.
In the first film, we saw the amount of damage he inflicted against the Russian mob in order to protect a hooker. But just how far will he go when that is someone he loves? As seen in the new Equalizer 2 trailer, he certainly dials up the violence in between his Lyft drives.
The Equalizer 2 opens in late July and also stars Melissa Leo, Bill Pullman, Pedro Pascal and Jonathan Scarfe.
