In 2014, Denzel Washington took over Edward Woodward’s ’80s TV role as the retired spy turned revenge specialist Robert McCall for a big-screen version of The Equalizer. The film earned $192 million worldwide. Now, he’s back in The Equalizer 2, which has just released a new trailer. Watch it below.

“They killed my friend. So I’m gonna kill each and every one of them. And the only disappointment is that I only get to do it once,” Denzel’s Robert McCall says in the clip.

The movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua, follows Washington’s “high-level paid government assassin” as he seeks revenge for his friend’s murder. His journey takes him around the world, particularly to Turkey to save a young girl who was kidnapped from her American mother, as detailed in the opening sequence of the trailer.

Fuqua and Washington are frequent collaborators, having worked together previously on the first “Equalizer,” 2001’s Training Day — for which Washington won a best actor Academy Award — and 2016’s The Magnificent Seven. Screenwriter Richard Wenk (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, The Expendables 2) also returned to write the screenplay. As for the cast members, Pedro Pascal, Bill Pullman, Melissa Leo, and Ashton Sanders also star.

The movie 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. Bloomfield.

Sony Pictures will release The Equalizer 2 on July 20. Watch the trailer below.

[About The Equalizer] "We know McCall is a good guy. He’s a soulful loner. And he’s strangely meticulous. He has a habit of folding a tea bag very precisely in a serviette, taking it down to his local diner at night, and getting a mug of hot water, while whatever he’s reading is placed exactly perpendicular to the table edge. He also likes to use a stopwatch in any context where violence looms, testing his reflexes to the decimal point. When his concern for an abused teenage prostitute (Chloë Grace Moretz, doing her lewdest Jodie Foster in cut-off denim) leads him to the den of her snarling pimps, and McCall gets his methodical vigilante on for the first time, the pitch becomes clear. It’s Batman means Rain Man." (Telegraph)
