It was the first film to have Village Roadshow Pictures co-finance the deal with Sony Pictures since Saving Silverman in 2001. The film had its world premiere at 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on September 7, 2014, and was released worldwide on September 26. The film received mixed reviews from critics, who highly praised the visual style, acting, soundtrack and action sequences but criticized its violence, script and plot. Nonetheless, it became a commercial success with a worldwide box office gross of over $192 million. A sequel has been confirmed for a July 20, 2018 release, with Washington and Fuqua returning.
