Denzel Washington in The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2 Trailer #2 (2018) “There Is No Equal”

Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career. 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.

Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Magnificent Seven) returns for the sequel, which also stars Pedro Pascal, Ashton Sanders, Bill Pullman, and Melissa Leo. Screenwriter Richard Wenk (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, The Expendables 2) also returned to write the screenplay.

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.

One thought on “The Equalizer 2 Trailer #2 (2018) “There Is No Equal””

  1. Ah Denzel. I loved the first one. I loved him in the first one. I loved the way his character was set up. It wasn’t Man On Fire (best film of its genre I have ever seen) but I was taken with the way he polished that hammer as he returned it to its place in the hardware store. The epitome of self-assured coolness, Denzel Washington is.

    I do wish he were squaring off against a different kind of villain. I don’t think you can get more Russian gangster-y than the last guy. The guy became a straw man in the last sequence, but right up until then he had me.
