The Equalizer IMAX Poster: Denzel Washington Is Armed & Dangerous

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Equalizer is leaping from the classic '80s TV series to the big screen, thanks to Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington.

The pair who came together for Training Day are back, and from the looks of that The Equalizer trailer, they're going to be explosive yet again. 

Washington is the Equalizer, a special ops veteran who gets pulled back into action to help a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), who is being threatened by the Russian mob in Boston.

The last time Washington and Fuqua got together, Washington won an Oscar for those Training Day quotes

The title of the show, and now the film, comes from the character's ability to even the score for those who have the cards stacked against them. From all appearances, with Washington on your side, I'd say the cards are ever more in your favor! 

Look for The Equalizer September 26, and for a glimpse into the Washington-Fuqua creative power, watch Training Day online
