Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career in The Equalizer 2.

Washington plays Robert McCall, who serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is written by Richard Wenk, based on the old television series created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim.

They killed my friend,” says Denzel Washington as the seeker of justice (or something like it) in this new trailer for Sony’s The Equalizer 2. “So I’m going to kill each and every one of them, and my only disappointment is I only get to do it once.”

The film is produced by Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Denzel Washington Alex Siskin, Steve Tisch, Mace Neufeld, Tony Eldridge, and Michael Sloan, with executive producers Molly Allen and David J. Bloomfiel


* The Equalizer 2 is scheduled for release at South African cinemas on August 24.
