Denzel Washington is set to return as former Black Ops assassin turned do-gooder Robert McCall and now things are about to get personal in The Equalizer 2.
An adrenaline charged new trailer is here and the action doesn’t let up for a second. Check it out below:
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.
Following on the heels of the action packed first trailer, this new trailer throws plenty of lock and load action together as McCall carves his way through an assortment of twisted new bad guys who go too far and assassinate McCall’s closest friend Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo). This of-course is a huge mistake and McCall unleashes a maelstrom of chaos as he vows to eliminate those who killed his friend.
Along with the considerable action moments, the new trailer also focuses on the theme of ‘doing the right thing’. This was something that was a big focus of the fist Equalizer film, and it’s great to see that Washington and director Antoine Fuqua are continuing down this track. Part of what made Robert McCall such a hero was the fact that he always stood up for the little guy and would do whatever it took to make the wrong things right. In such a crazy world it’s still cool to think that there’s an old school warrior out there who still lives my a moral code and who will do the right thing.
The Equalizer 2 is without-a-doubt one of the most anticipated action films of 2018 and you’ll be able to witness this badass adrenaline fest when it arrives in cinemas on July 19.
