The Equalizer

The most recent trailer for Sony Pictures contemporary update of the 80s TV series The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington almost feels like a spiritual sequel to his fantastic thriller Man on Fire. Now Washington takes center stage on an IMAX poster for the film from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). A sequel is already in development for the film because it's been testing so well with audiences, so we're anxious to see what we'll get this fall. While we're not sure a film like this needs to be seen on the IMAX, especially when no part of the film was shot on the large format, some people will get suckered in.

Here's the new IMAX poster for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer from IMAX on Twitter:

The Equalizer

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 (Chloƫ 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.

Oh yay can't wait for generic Denzel Washington action movie!

I'm sorry but Denzel and Generic should never ever be said in the same sentence.

Oh gee I thought this character was like every other action character he has played, my mistake sorry. His name this time is "McCall" and oh this time it's not some drug thing like in that movie 2Guns oh no it's "Russian Gangsters". My apologizes sir.

I would agree if not for Man On Fire. That movie was awesome...

Usually better than the generic Liam Neeson action movie.

Yah think? Denzel has always been a hundred steps ahead of Neeson. Ever since Taken Neeson has just been overblown into oblivion. He has become a running joke in cinema literally.

Stephen Ritchie on Jul 16, 2014


Yeah, Jim, much as I hate to say it: I'm tired of those Neeson action thrillers. I haven't even bothered to see that last one, what was it called? Non-Stop, wasn't it? I'm gonna wait for it to show up on EPIX or HBO or whatever...

Such a smooth head. Looks good.

Denzel Washington fits in perfectly as the black ops commando living in America with a Scottish surname. Who's bright idea was that to cast a black actor instead of a British or even an Australian actor?

Last name doesn't define your ethnicity.. You do know that right?

steve on Jul 17, 2014


Well, I have long European surname and everyone assumes that I am either Russian, Greek or Lebanese. My surname does define my ethnic back ground even though I was born in Australia.

Nobody gives a f$$k.....
