The Equalizer 2 First Trailer

A long time ago in a galaxy far away, I was a fan of a TV show called The Equalizer about a seemingly every-man who possessed what we would call today "a special set of skills" and used those to equalize the odds for people in trouble. In 2014 Denzel Washington starred in a movie version and guess what? It was great, hitting all of the right chords for an action movie and had a slightly over the top finale that I refer to as "1001 ways to die in Home Depot". Now there is a sequel.

The new movie appears to have dropped the contained storyline of the original for a more international thriller feel that you might associate with a Bourne movie. Hopefully, the desire to go bigger that is a hallmark for most sequels won't do much harm. The Equalizer 2 starring Denzel Washington, Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman will land in the theaters on July 20th.
