Join Your NABJ-Chicago Chapter For Screening of ‘Equalizer2’ — July 10
We’ve secured a limited number of passes to see everyone’s hero, Denzel Washington, in the upcoming “Equalizer2,” sequel to his 2014 blockbuster, “Equalizer.”
Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career. Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when it’s someone he loves?
Directed by Antoine Fuqua, “Equalizer2” hits theaters July 20. Written by Richard Wenk, the film stars Washington, Pedro Pascal, Ashton Sanders, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.
