Title: Denzel Washington Returns as Robert McCall in “The Equalizer 3,” Earning Impressive Previews at Box Office
Denzel Washington is back as the vigilant former CIA operative, Robert McCall, in the highly anticipated action thriller, “The Equalizer 3.” The film has already made an impressive $3.8 million during its preview screenings at the box office.
Anticipation is high for the movie’s opening weekend with industry insiders projecting a debut between $28 million and $30 million. With the added benefit of the Labor Day holiday, the film could potentially exceed initial estimates and reach a total of $33 million to $40 million.
While “The Equalizer 3” is expected to perform well, it will have the smallest three-day opening in the franchise. The original film debuted with a strong $34 million in 2014, while the sequel launched with $36 million in 2018. Nevertheless, fans of the series are eager to see how Washington and director Antoine Fuqua continue to captivate audiences with their collaboration.
In this final installment of the “Equalizer” series, McCall finds himself in an Italian town controlled by the mafia. As he navigates dangerous territory, McCall must utilize his unique skills as a mercenary for one last mission. The film’s plot promises intense action and gripping suspense.
Joining Washington in the cast is Dakota Fanning, reuniting with the actor after almost two decades since their collaboration in “Man on Fire.” The film also features Bill Pullman, Ashton Sanders, and other talented actors, adding depth to the already stellar ensemble.
In other box office news, Sony’s “Gran Turismo” is anticipated to earn an additional $7 million to $9 million in its second weekend. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.’ “Barbie” is on track to become the highest-grossing worldwide release of the year, surpassing “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”
“The Equalizer 3” promises to deliver heart-pounding action and a stellar cast, making it a must-watch film for fans of Denzel Washington and the franchise. Moviegoers are in for an exciting ride as they witness McCall’s final mission in the Italian mafia-controlled town.
