Sony Pictures has released the first images from The Equalizer.  The movie is based off the 1980s TV series, and stars Denzel Washington as a former covert operations officer who dedicates his life to helping people in trouble.  However, Washington says it wasn’t the original series that drew him to the project; it was the material.  “It’s a classic story, the innocent girl and the guy coming in to save the day and kick some butt,” Washington tells USA Today.  “You’ll get some popcorn and escape for a couple of hours.”  Washington seems to enjoy making these kinds of movies since five of his last six films have had action elements.  The Equalizer could turn into a franchise for Washington since a sequel is already in the works.  But Washington remains cautious saying, “You can’t make No. 2 before you make No. 1. It’s called show business. We’ve handled the show part of it. We’ll see how the business part goes.”

Hit the jump to check out The Equalizer images featuring Denzel Washington and Chloë Grace Moretz.  The film opens on September 26th, and also stars Melissa Leo, Marton Csokas, and Haley Bennett.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Equalizer:

In The Equalizer, 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.
