Now that the summer movie season has cooled off and we’ve pushed past the Labor Day doldrums, we’re now headed into the fall with plenty of exciting movies to put on your radar, so our screenings invites are heating back up. We’re kicking it off with The Equalizer, which has Denzel Washington being a badass, a formula that audiences tend to love. In the film, Washington plays an ex-CIA agent who comes out of retirement to save a young woman (Chloë Grace Moretz) from the Russian mob. The movie tested so well that Sony is already developing a sequel.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of The Equalizer. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo. The Equalizer opens September 26th.
To enter for a chance to win an admit-two pass, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “THE EQUALIZER”. The screening is on Wednesday, September 24th at 7PM at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Additionally, the film is rated-R, so don’t enter if you’re under 17 unless you plan to attend with a parent or guardian. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer.
And here’s the official synopsis:
In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
