The Equalizer 3, the third and final chapter of Denzel Washington’s brutal action franchise, has just dropped its first trailer.

Washington made his debut as Robert McCall, the character first brought to life by Edward Woodward in the ’80s TV show, in 2014’s The Equalizer.

Pulpy, violent, and a hit at the box office, it spawned a sequel four years later that saw McCall caught in the crossfire of a government conspiracy involving Pedro Pascal’s Dave York. By the end of the movie, he basically became a slasher villain as he prowled through a blustering seaside town – it was awesome.

“Finding himself surprisingly at home in Southern Italy, he discovers his new friends are under the control of local crime bosses. As events turn deadly, McCall knows what he has to do: become his friends’ protector by taking on the mafia.”

Excitingly, the movie will reunite Washington with Dakota Fanning, his Man on Fire co-star. Debuting the trailer at CinemaCon, the actress said (as per EW): “I am just so excited to be here and to be a part of this film. Getting to work with Denzel once is a dream come true and twice is… I don’t even know. [I’m] so blessed to be a part of this, and excited for you to see a sneak peek.”
