Denzel Washington Hits the Road on First Poster for 'The Equalizer'
So far only a single first look photo from this fall's action thriller The Equalizer, based on the 80's CBS series of the same name, has surfaced, but there's already a sequel in development at Columbia Pictures due to reportedly overwhelmingly positive focus group tests. Now it sounds like the first trailer might be just around the corner as the first poster for the film starring Denzel Washington has arrived. Relying only on Washington's name and silhouette, the studio seems to be counting on a lot of people recognizing the title. At the very least, the poster is stylish, and we're glad it's just not Washington looking intimidating. Look!
Here's the first poster for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer from Yahoo:
The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) and written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 3, The Mechanic). Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall's desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer. Columbia Pictures releases the film September 26th.
