I’m already a long sold fan of director Antoine Fuqua, and I don’t say that lightly. I dug The Replacement Killers in 1998 as well as thrillers like Training Day and Shooter. I could probably go on all day about how much I enjoyed his 2014 big screen reboot of The Equalizer but I won’t; that it’s a box office success getting a sequel is enough for me.
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
Also starring is actress Haley Bennett also starred in The Equalizer, and from the looks of things here, she continues to carry herself in fine form. The film opens on September 23 and the teaser is below!
