Hey movie buffs, do you remember the Equalizer franchise? Of course, you do! The iconic Denzel Washington played the role of Robert McCall, a former government assassin, who found redemption by serving justice on behalf of the oppressed. Well, we’ve got some thrilling news for you – The Equalizer 3 is hitting the theaters this year!
The first two movies were a rollercoaster ride of action and emotion. In the first movie, McCall met a young prostitute named Teri, who is under the control of the Russian mafia, he can’t help but intervene. His past comes back to haunt him as he uses his lethal skills to take down the Russian gangsters, one by one. As he delves deeper into the criminal underworld, he discovers a massive conspiracy involving corrupt cops and high-ranking officials.
The plot of The Equalizer 2 picks up from where the first movie left off. Robert McCall (played by Denzel Washington) is still working as a Lyft driver and using his skills to help people in need. When one of his close friends and former colleagues, Susan Plummer (played by Melissa Leo), is murdered, he sets out to find those responsible.
As McCall delves deeper into the investigation, he discovers a conspiracy involving a team of rogue operatives within the CIA. With the help of his friend and former partner, Dave York (played by Pedro Pascal), he takes on the corrupt operatives and their powerful backers in a quest for justice.
Now, the third Equalizer installment promises to be bigger, bolder, and better than ever. We know that Washington will be back in action as McCall, and he’ll be joined by Dakota Fanning and David Denman. The movie is once again directed by Antoine Fuqua, the mastermind behind the first two movies.
In E3, McCall has struggled to reconcile the horrific things he’s done in the past and finds a strange solace in serving justice on behalf of the oppressed. Finding himself surprisingly at home in Southern Italy, he discovers his new friends are under the control of local crime bosses. As events turn deadly, McCall knows what he has to do: become his friends’ protector by taking on the mafia.
Mark your calendars, and get ready for an unforgettable cinematic experience.
