Denzel Washington featured on new poster for The Equalizer


We are now just three months away from the release of the action-packed thriller The Equalizer.

Just yesterday, it was announced that the film would be getting one of the most immersive releases possible. The Equalizer will be released in IMAX.

Now, we have a look at a new poster for the upcoming film that features none other than the film’s star Denzel Washington.

The Equalizer features Washington as Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who went as far as to fake his own death in order to retire in peace and walk away from his action-filled existence.

Unfortunately, when he meets a young girl by the name of Teri, who is being played in the film by Kick-Ass actress Chloë Grace Moretz, he finds out that she is being controlled by some pretty dangerous Russian gangsters.

Suddenly, he finds himself unable to stand by and watch them take advantage of this young girl and he quickly finds himself right back in the game as he fights to take them down and restore justice to the world.

While we wait patiently for the film to be released, let’s take a look at the new poster for the upcoming film The Equalizer.

The Equalizer is being directed by Antoine Fuqua. This film should be a perfect fit for a director like Fuqua. He has directed plenty of action films like Olympus Has Fallen and Brooklyn’s Finest. It’s also not the first time that he has worked with Washington. Fuqua directed the film Training Day as well.

The script for the film was penned by Richard Wenk. Much like Fuqua, he has experience in the action realm as he penned the script for The Expendables 2. Of course, this is all based on the 1985 television series from Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim.

The film stars Denzel Washington as Robert McCall. The Equalizer also stars Kick-Ass actress Chloë Grace Moretz, Bill Pullman, Melissa Leo, Robert Wahlberg, Marton Csokas, Haley Bennett, and many more.

The Equalizer is scheduled to be released on September 26, 2014.
