Denzel Washington gets down to business in the gritty new trailer for ‘The Equalizer 2’
Denzel Washington returns as former black ops operative turned vigilante do-gooder Robert McCall in The Equalizer 2….and this time it’s personal.
Check out the gritty new trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Continuing to fight the good fight for those that can’t fight for themselves Robert McCall (Washington) appears to have found both purpose and peace in his life. But this is shattered forever when his friend and former handler Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo) is murdered by a dangerous group of mercenaries. Suddenly pulled back into the life he thought he’d left behind, McCall declares all-out war on Susan’s killers.
This new trailer for The Equalizer 2 is everything I could want and more. It presents Denzel Washington at his most badass as things take a personal turn for him and he unleashes the beast. Like the original, The Equalizer 2 plays up McCall’s creative-ability at taking out bad guys, while also drawing on his desire to protect the innocent at all costs.
Washington and his long-time friend and collaborator Antoine Fuqua are once again in their element with The Equalizer 2, and in a first for both of them it’s the first time either of them are working on a sequel. While audiences can expect plenty of solid action sequences, both Washington and Fuqua are also exploring the greater canvas of what makes McCall the man he his, and how this defines his mission.
This trailer definitely got me amped and you can check out my full reaction below:
Get ready for an adrenaline rush when The Equalizer 2 is released in cinemas on July 19.
