Equalizer II is filming in Marshfield and Duxbury.
You know The Equalizer… that little English secret agent dude from the 80s with the mad guns and the nice Mercedes. He was sort of like James Bond, except that you could hire him if you dug through the Classified ads deeply enough.
OK, this Equalizer is Denzel Washington, he seems to live in Brant Rock, and I don’t think that he’s English.
From what I saw while checking out the YouTube fight scenes from Equalizer I (you need to make a second Equalizer film to equalize the first Equalizer film, lest one standing alone unbalances the scale), Robert McCall works at a home improvement store when not out Equalizing. Time slows down for him when the fighting starts, and he does this Bionic Man thing where he looks around the room and finds lethal uses for hardcover books and so forth.
I didn’t see one guy survive his difference of opinion with Equalizer I. The Equalizer chooses his victims well, usually some pimp or a junkie. This helps the viewer not notice some he’s-a-psychopath stuff that the Equalizer does, like timing how long it takes him to kill five men with a corkscrew… you know, just like you and I do.
This is neither here nor there. What we’re here to show you today is a little movie magic.
That boat above shouldn’t be there. That’s the Arthur & Pat’s parking lot. However, the Equalizer apparently fights a hurricane in his second eponymous film, and they need a boat washed ashore to make the storm look meaner.
I do like that, many moons after her demise, Arthur & Pat’s is going to be famous one last time.
We can neither confirm nor deny the rumors that Denzel Washington is staying at the guest house of Duxbury Beach philanthropist Stephen Bowden. Washington was also not seen leaving South Side Annie’s in New Bedford with Cranberry County Magazine foreign affairs desk chief Stacey Monponsett.
Another old favorite from around the way that gets some Equalization is the Powder Point Bridge. Someone crosses Denzel on the PPB in this film, and he no doubt tosses them to their death off the side. OK, that may require some work, because children hurl themselves off that bridge for fun… but if anyone can work around something like that, it’s Coach Boone.
Maybe Denzel is about to Equalize someone, but he doesn’t have $700 for the beach sticker and sheepishly allows himself to be sent back to the mainland by the Duxbury Assistant Harbormaster. Denzel then gives up, lets ISIL get away and just goes to Benchwarmer Subs.
Only time will tell. The film is set to be released on August 3, 2018. Until then, we have only the props and out imagination…
