First THE EQUALIZER Trailer Shows Denzel Washington Kicking Ass

by     Posted 160 days ago


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 PullmanThe Equalizer opens September 26.

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.

    Don’t call Rob Reiner while The Equalizer is on. He’s waited all week for it and he’ll curse at you like there’s no tomorrow in a lovely British accent.

      Especially when Steve Buscemi is the guest star!!! Seriously I have heard about this remake for a while and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them watching the original in wows

      Kudos to copying my comment from an earlier equalizer post.

  • Bob

    Now I am interested.

    This in NOT The Equalizer. This is a Man on Fire sequel.


      You say that like that’s a bad thing.

      • Richard

        A Man of Fire sequel might be great! But don’t call it The Equalizer. How about doing a 3′s Company movie but have 3 former female police that secretly work for a guy named Charlie? If fine, but its not the same show.

        How is this man on fire. A girl doesn’t get kidnapped. It doesn’t take place in Mexico. It involves the Russian mafia who is after denzel. Man on fire he did the hunting. If you notice in the trailer he finds the men that beat his prostitute friend pretty early. He gets his revenge or justice which then kicks the movie’s story into gear. The only thing similar is that it’s Denzel kicking criminal ass. Man on Fire is awesome by the way.

        The problem with society is people don’t want to take the time to examine things to see what they really are. They just rather make broad generalizations and keep it moving.

    Seeing elements from previous denzel hits. Former military bad ass protecting young girl=man on fire, Russian gangsters=training day. Hopefully the Russian gangsters don’t get the better of him in the end like training day ;)=

    • MJ

      Or Man on Fire. Agreed !

  • Robert Christopher Hayes

    This is the same character that Denzel has been playing since Training Day, but holy crap he does it well. This looks so badass and seems like it could be a lot of fun.

    Note to movie villains -

    1. Don’t kidnap Liam Neeson’s family.

    2. Don’t hurt young girls that Denzel Washington cares for.

    They will fuck your shit up if you do.

    This looks great btw.

    Can you guys please learn how to write a title properly. “First Trailer for THE EQUALIZER Shows Denzel Washington Kicking Ass”… NOT… “First THE EQUALIZER Trailer Shows Denzel Washington Kicking Ass”. This website doesn’t come off as professional or legitimate when you make stupid mistakes like this, along with the numerous other grammatical errors throughout your postings. I don’t know how many times this needs to be pointed out, both by myself and other readers, before you guys start making changes. It’s like reading a website that a High School Freshmen writes on.

      Then go read different articles on different websites.

        If I wanted any lip from you I’d rattle my zipper.
