The Equalizer 2 Censored For Lower BBFC 15 Rating
Putting the storyline aside for a moment, the action flick The Equalizer (2014), directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Denzel Washington, was pretty rough and violent. In the UK, the movie was cut in order to get the lower and more lucrative BBFC 15 rating (comparison).
The sequel The Equalizer 2 is not expected to be any less harmless than the first one. In the UK, history repeats itself: A BBFC 18 for Uncut Version would have been possible, the studio prefered a censored BBFC 15 version though - as stated by the BBFC:
The plural "scenes" makes it clear that there are several alterations. Hopefully, the Uncut Version will be available on Blu-ray/DVD (which was not the case with the original).
