Sony Pictures has released more clips for The Equalizer 2, with Antoine Fuqua returning as its director and Denzel Washington reprising his role as Robert McCall. The film hits theaters on July 20, 2018.
Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?
In the first film, Denzel Washington starred as Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo will also return to the sequel with the addition or Pedro Pascal and Ashton Sanders (Moonlight). Leo and Pullman played Susan and Brian Plummer, the great friends of Robert McCall (Washington) when he worked in counter-terrorism. Susan was McCall’s handler.
Fuqua’s 2014 adaptation of the 1980s television series The Equalizer grossed over $192 million worldwide and co-starred Chloe Moretz, Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.
This marks the 4th collaboration between Fuqua and Washington, following Training Day, The Magnificent Seven and The Equalizer.
