Denzel Washington in The Equalizer - First-look picture

The Equalizer

Story by Jack Foley

A FIRST-look image has been released of Denzel Washington in The Equalizer.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is based on the television series created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim, which starred Edward Woodward.

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.

The Equalizer is released in UK cinemas on October 10, 2014.
