"One day someone does something unspeakable to someone you hardly knew, so you do something about it because no one else is going to…" Columbia Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer, an update of the cult classic 80's vigilante TV show, this time starring Denzel Washington as the badass Robert McCall. When he meets a young woman, played by Chloe Moretz, and attempts to gain her freedom, he ends up bringing the entire Russian mob down on him. But he can take them, no problem. The cast includes Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas and Bill Pullman. This looks like a solid action thriller, enjoy.
Here's the first full trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer, first found via SlashFilm:
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 opens the film in theaters September 26th.
