First THE EQUALIZER Trailer Shows Denzel Washington Kicking Ass

by     Posted 211 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.

      • World’s Finest Comments

        So you spend your entire life checking comment sections on different sites to see if people happen to make the same joke you did?

        I’ve heard Holocaust stories that aren’t even a third as depressing as your life is…

      • Pk

        I just happened to come across your comment. No need to act like a little twat about it…

      • World’s Finest Comments

        What’s that? You want my d*ck inside your tw*t?! What the hell is wrong with you?!

      • World’s Finest Comments

        But in all seriousness, this is the last time we’re speaking. Unlike you, I’m not going to waste my entire life obsessing over days old post, as you can see, I am much more important than you. If I see this in my notifications again, I’m not even going to click and read it. So don’t waste your time, and much more importantly, don’t waste mine. I don’t have time for dirty peasants that don’t even have an account and just log in as guest. Respect your masters and learn your place next time. =)

        oh fuck you you worthless little cunt. okay admit my above comments were silly but there is no need to get so uptight about such silly matters. jesus you have got some issues to resolve given your god like complex

  • Bob

    Now I am interested.

  • Richard

    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.

      • Shogun47

        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.

      • Richard

        I didn’t say remake. I said sequel. It has more in common with Man on Fire than The Equalizer that it is an actual remake of. That’s the point, it has nothing to do with The Equalizer either. Now that you said all the things it didn’t have in common with Man on Fire, how about saying all the differences it has with The Equalizer TV show?

      • MJ

        You are saying all this just based on the trailer, dude?

        I agree with others here — your broad over-generalization here on this seems wacky.

      • Richard

        Have you ever seen The Equalizer TV show?

      • MJ

        Yes, I watched every episode when it came out originally.

        Perhaps you are really concerned that he’s black and obviously not British as well? Perhaps something beneath the surface here is getting you all worked up about this, because you seem to be really overstating things here just based on a trailer???

    • MJ

      Sounds great to me.

    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.

  • Steven

    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.

      John McNeal (Liam Neeson) is an ex-government contractor who finally decides to settle down and live out his retirement in peace with his family. Brian Mack (Denzel Washington) is Lilah McNeal’s (Abigail Breslin) ex-Navy Seal high school teacher that’s encouraging her to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a physicist. When revenge-obsessed Eastern European mobsters from McNeal’s past led by Zakoyev (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) kidnap Lilah during the prom, it’s up to McNeal to rescue his daughter with Mack’s help–and eliminate the threat permanently–before she disappears forever.

      DEATHOLOGY, a Lionsgate film. In theaters this September. (You’re welcome, Hollywood.)

    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.

    • pandapool

      Then go read different articles on different websites.

    Denzel Washington Makes Guarantees

  • Cpt Rex Kramer

    Yeah, I don’t know about this one. I’m sure it’s an entertaining film, as Denzel always delivers, but it’s not what one remembers about “The Equalizer” t.v. series. An old, unassuming, dapper Brit bringing down the hammer on the scum of the city. The charm of the original seems to be quite lost in this trailer. At the very least, put in a older Brit like Bill Nighy or Gary Oldman. Now that would be interesting. And where the hell is Copeland’s theme?

  • Grendal Sven

    Wasn’t THE EQUALIZER (cause it sounds like it needs all caps) an old white guy?

    • dude

      Yes, now it’s an old badass black guy who doesn’t look “old” in the slightest. Any problem?

      • Grendal Sven


  • ʝoe ßloggs

    McCall and Jack Bauer should team up.
    I guarantee you a BO hit!
