The Equalizer Trailer: Not Exactly a Happy Ending

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Denzel Washington is back with the director who guided him through those Training Day quotes that got Washington that Oscar. Antoine Fuqua has reunited with Washington for The Equalizer, and the film’s first full length trailer has premiered.

Washington plays the character that is based on the '80s TV classic about a man who has left his life as a black ops commando to work on the quieter side of things. 

But, when he sees a wrong -- the Equalizer has a hard time just walking away, as you can see from the above trailer.

The Equalizer takes place in Boston. Washington’s character takes an interest in a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), and when she is mistreated, he gets revenge. The only issue, the recipient of his wrath… is the Russian mob. Something tells us they won't go quietly into the night.

Look for The Equalizer in theaters September 26.
