- Sony Pictures drops the first trailer of Equalizer 3
- Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning play the leads in the movie
- The third installment is the end of this franchise
The trailer of the third and final installment of Denzel Washington’s Equalizer has been dropped. The Equalizer, a beloved 1980s television series, was reimagined for a modern audience in 2014 by director Antoine Fuqua and star Denzel Washington. The violent and sleek action film earned mixed reviews from critics but dominated the box office, earning a staggering $190 million worldwide on a $62 million budget. Pulpy, bloody, and financially successful, it gave rise to a sequel four years later that found McCall caught up in a government plot involving Pedro Pascal’s Dave York. He essentially transformed into a slasher villain towards the film’s conclusion as he prowled through a boisterous coastal town, and we didn’t complain.
The third adventure of Robert McCall has traveled a long way to the big screen. After The Equalizer 2’s debut in 2018, Fuqua began to tease the third thriller film. However, he was side-tracked by the production of the science fiction films Infinite for Paramount Plus and The Guilty for Netflix. In January 2022, Sony officially revealed that the movie was moving forward and that both Washington and Fuqua would soon be returning. And now the first trailer of the third and final installment of the franchise has been dropped.

As the situation becomes dangerous, McCall realizes what he must do: defend his buddies by going up against the mobsters. In The Equalizer 3, Denzel Washington will reprise his role as Robert McCall. Additionally, he’ll work with Man on Fire co-star Dakota Fanning once more; however, what role she’ll play is not clear right now.
