Sony has moved The Equalizer 2 up a month.
Originally set for September 14, 2018, it’ll now be in theaters on August 10, 2018.
The Antoine Fuqua-directed film will now face off against the Scarface reboot from Universal and a shark movie titled, Meg from Warner Bros. Also Sony’s live-action Barbie movie starring Anne Hathaway will be out that Wednesday on the 8th.
Based on the television series of the same name, it follows Denzel Washington as a retired CIA agent who now is a for-hire justice-seeker for those looking for help rather than the police.
