The legendary actor Denzel Washington is back as Robert McCall in the final chapter of American vigilante action film The Equalizer. The Equalizer 3 hits UK cinemas halls on 1 September this year, and we’ll see if he goes out on a high note.
It is interesting to note that the lead actors Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning will be seen together on the silver screen after a gap of nearly 20 years. ‘Man on Fire’ was their last movie together in 2004 when Dakota was just 10 years old.
Watch the official trailer here:
The film franchise was launched in 2014, with the second installment debuting in 2018. Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim created the CBS TV series The Equalizer. It is directed by American filmmaker Antoine Fuqua from a script written by Richard Wenk.
The Equalizer 3: Vengeance meets his equal
Since giving up his life as a government assassin, Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) has struggled to reconcile the horrific things he’s done in the past. He finds a strange solace in serving justice on behalf of the oppressed.
Finding himself surprisingly at home in Southern Italy, he discovers that 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 head-on.
Denzel Washington got a standing ovation as he was honored with CinemaCon’s Lifetime Achievement Award on April 24. CinemaCon is the annual gathering of the motion picture theater industry.
