Renowned actor Denzel Washington is once again taking on the lead role of Robert McCall, and this time, he’s going on an adventure to Europe to showcase his notorious skill set and do justice in his own way. “The Equalizer 3” will reunite Denzel Washington with director Antoine Fuqua and screenwriter Richard Wenk, who have worked together since the first film.
Besides, this action film is also an opportunity for Washington to reunite with young actress Dakota Fanning after nearly 20 years.

Director Antoine Fuqua, “I think knowing more about Robert McCall is key,” and promises to bring something new to the action franchise.

Although it did not receive convincing ratings from the critics, the film has grossed more than 192 million USD in global box office revenue before the investment budget of 55 – 73 million USD. The commercial success led to a second film in 2018 and again grossing around $190 million.
Released by Sony Pictures Releasing, “The Equalizer 3” will hit cinemas around the world from September 1, 2023, and has the potential to be another action-packed hit this year.
