Sony has released the first trailer for The Equalizer. Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz). Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters. The pic scored incredibly high during its first test screening, and Sony is already prepping a sequel in the hopes that this film hits big with audiences. And based on the trailer, which shows Washington kicking everyone’s ass, I think the studio has a winner.
Hit the jump to watch the Equalizer trailer. The film also stars Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas, Haley Bennett, David Harbour, and Bill Pullman. The Equalizer opens September 26.
