Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua, director of “Training Day” (2001), collaborate yet again for the action thriller “The Equalizer,” which is set to hit theaters Sept. 26.
The film is based on a 1980’s television series and focuses on Robert McCall (Washington), a former black ops commando who wants to escape his past for a life of tranquility and normalcy. However, in an attempt to help a young woman named Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz), McCall finds himself in the middle of a conflict with the Russian Mafia. McCall has to channel his expertise as a commando to deal with this new threat.
The trailer shows Washington with a cool ruthlessness, similar to the roles of some of his past films. View the trailer below.
