Denzel Washington is back and he’s starring in a new film called The Equalizer. The movie is based on the TV series which starred Edward Woodward and Melissa Leo. It aired on CBS in 1985 and ran for 4 seasons. Who can forget the memorable tag line “Odds against you? Need help? Call the Equalizer.”
The 1980s TV series and upcoming film was directed by Antoine Fuqua, who is also known for the movie Training Day. Washington starred in that movie as well and even received an Academy Award for Best Actor.
In The Equalizer film, Washington plays a reluctant vigilante with some special ops skills, and makes enemies with the Russian Mafia after coming to the rescue of a young girl in need (Chloe Grace Moretz). Film critics predict that it will be a big hit in theaters and judging by the new trailer release from Sony, I definitely believe the film will be very successful.
The Equalizer hits theaters September 26th, 2014. See the new trailer below:
