The Hurricane: the facts of Rubin Carter's life story are beaten to a pulp

3 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Denzel Washington's compelling performance gives Norman Jewison's biopic punch despite its many inaccuracies

The Hurricane (1999)

Director: Norman Jewison

Entertainment grade: B

History grade: D

Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, who died this week, was a boxer in the United States. He was convicted of a 1966 triple homicide in two trials and became a cause celebre, inspiring Bob Dylan's song Hurricane. The convictions were set aside by a federal court in 1985, on the grounds that they had been "predicated upon an appeal to racism rather than reason".

More images from The Equalizer

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week we brought you a couple of images from The Equalizer featuring Denzel Washington (Flight) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie) [see here], and now we have another three which sees Washington joined by Marton Csokas (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day)…

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 set for release on September 26th, with a cast »

ABC's new drama 'Black Box' probes addiction and disease

22 April 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — ABC's brainy new medical drama "Black Box" does a neat trick: It dares viewers to imagine for themselves the cost-benefit ratio of addiction, and does it without taking a firm stand. It does it in the person of lovely, top-of-her-field Dr. Catherine Black, known as "the Marco Polo of the Brain," who helps patients navigate a range of neurological disorders. She also secretly wrestles with one of her own: She's bipolar. Meanwhile, she's addicted to the mind-expanding, sometimes rapturous but ultimately dangerous effects of skipping the meds that keep her "normalized," and letting her condition run full tilt. "This show is not a generic examination of bipolarity — not at all," says series star Kelly Reilly. "This is about one woman who is an addict to her disease. The disease is treatable. But it calls for a lifetime of commitment and rearranging medications to see what works and »

New Shots Emerge Of Denzel Washington In ‘The Equalizer’

22 April 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The original 1980′s series was about an uptight Englishman dishing out hard justice in clipped tones on the mean streets of New York. But in 2014 The Equalizer gets a brand new bag in the shape of Denzel Washington, reteaming with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua. The newly-embaldened Washington features in these new shots from the movie, alongside co-star Chloe Grace Moretz.

The seemingly Taxi Driver-inspired storyline sees title character Robert McCall protecting a teenage prostitute (Moretz) from the seedier elements of the Boston underworld, including Russian mafia “fixer” Marton Csokas.

 

As viewers of the original Equalizer will know, McCall was a cross between a Citizens Advice Bureau worker and a deadly commando, and although this re-imagining follows along the same lines the end product is more about quality than homage to Washington:

Washington, Fuqua Talk "The Equalizer"

22 April 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures has unveiled a bunch of new photos from its upcoming big screen reboot of "The Equaliser" franchise courtesy of USA Today.

Denzel Washington stars as retired government operative Robert McCall who tries to live a humble life as a home-store employee in Boston and ends up becoming a vigilante for the helpless, in this case a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).

Director Antoine Fuqua says: "There's a switch that (Washington) turns on and that's just scary. There's a sustained intensity even in casual mode, like a panther. If it's turned against you, you're going to be in a bad place."

Surprisingly, Washington says he "didn't really watch" the original TV series and wasn't drawn to it because of the show - rather it was Fuqua and the script that convinced him: "The title doesn't mean anything to me. It's the material. It's a classic story, the innocent girl »

22 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a sequel already in the works, there’s good reason to be excited for Sony Pictures’ The Equalizer. Starring Denzel Washington and Chloë Grace Moretz, the film is apparently testing extremely well and with its September 26th release date quickly approaching, the studio is starting to push the marketing machine into gear.

Today, we have two new images from the film to feast our eyes on. The first, seen above, shows off Moretz (sporting red hair) and Washington taking a nighttime stroll. The second, at the bottom of this article, has Washington standing in the pouring rain and looking all badass with a gun in his hand. Presumably, he’s just killed someone.

Based off the 1980s TV series of the same name, The Equalizer will see Washington starring as a former covert-ops agent who chooses to dedicate his life to helping others. The actors describes it as the »

"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 was a popular TV drama that ran on CBS from 1985 to 1989 and revolved around a retired intelligence officer who helps people in trouble.

He's forced to come out of his self-imposed retirement to save a young prostitute, played by Chloe Moretz. He soon finds himself in a war with Russian gangsters. The first photos from The Equalizer have arrived, giving us a look at our leading man, along with his young co-star as they prepare for one brutal war.

New Images From The Equalizer

22 April 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though we can’t strictly describe these as the first images from The Equalizer, since the pic of Denzel Washington in the chair has been floating around for months and the poster arrived last week, here is at least a nice new selection of glimpses at the film, via USA Today. Speaking to Washington and director Antoine Fuqua on the set, the paper gets to the core of why the star has wanted to play a new version of Robert McCall, as originally embodied by Edward Woodward for the 1980s TV series. Turns out, it wasn’t the show… "The title doesn't mean anything to me. It's the material," says Washington. "It's a classic story, the innocent girl and the guy coming in to save the day and kick some butt. You'll get some popcorn and escape for a couple of hours."
