Poster for Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

17 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Check out this poster for Denzel Washington’s latest action flick, The Equalizer. Based on an ’80s detective show, this one reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, who helped him score an Oscar for Training Day. Here’s the premise:

Washington plays a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.

In the original TV show, Edward Woodward played a retired intelligence officer, not a black ops commando who faked his own death, but you expect them to ratchet up the drama in adaptations like these. There have been some excellent movies based on shows from the ’70s and ’80s, including Maverick, The Fugitive, and the Mission Impossible franchise. On the other end of the spectrum you have Dark Shadows and Lost in Space. »

Cool new poster for Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer

17 April 2014 3:21 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I really like this snazzy new poster for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer. To be honest, I was expecting the new poster to just have a giant picture of Denzel Washington's face with the title of the movie, but I'm glad we got this very cool looking poster instead. Simple, but effective, and pretty awesome in my opinion. Take a look: Screen tests for The Equalizer have been so successful a sequel is already in the works, and I'm quite excited to check out Antoine Fuqua's big screen »

Dark And Intriguing Poster Arrives For Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’

17 April 2014 2:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The new poster for The Equalizer has arrived and it certainly has a simplistic, noir feel to it. The story revolves around a former black ops commando (Denzel Washington) who fakes his own death in order to live the quiet life. However, he is dragged back into his former life while trying to rescue a prostitute (Chloë Grace Moretz) and inadvertently draws the attention of the Russian mob and rogue CIA agents.

Here it is in all it’s beauty:

Denzel Washington has certainly proven his action skills over recent years so it’s exciting to see him return to this genre. Putting him with Moretz also has the potential to be a spectacular cinematic pairing.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) The Equalizer opens at UK cinemas on 10th October 2014.

The First Poster lands for Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer

17 April 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sony have released the first poster for the theatrical version of the hit TV show The Equalizer. Up to now all we’ve seen is a single image so hopefully a trailer will follow soon.

The TV show was released back in 1985 and ran for four seasons. It starred British legend Edward Woodward as Robert McCall who worked for a secret Us Governement Agency which was never named. The movie treatment sees Denzel Washington taking on the lead role as McCall alongside a great cast which also inclides Chloë Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Melissa Leo and Haley Bennett.

Starring Denzel Washington, it tells the story of a former black ops commando who faked his death and is now living a quiet life and returns to action to rescue a prostitute from evil pimps; his actions cause the Russian mob to send rogue CIA agents to kill him; he battles back against overwhelming odds, »

Teaser poster for Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

17 April 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on the 80's t.v. show of the same name, The Equalizer sees Denzel Washington teaming up again with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua for the story of Robert McCall (Washington), a former black ops commando, who, after faking his own death, finds his peaceful life shattered when he rescues a girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) from a group of Russian gangsters. Early word on the R rated action movie is good, so good in fact that early test screenings have put a sequel on the fast track. Columbia Picture have dropped the first poster for the movie, which doesn't give much away, but does make quite the impression. Released: 26th October (U.S.)/ 10th September (Irl/U.K.) »

First poster for The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington

Poster Simon Brew 17 Apr 2014 - 06:42

Denzel Washington is The Equalizer - and we've got the first poster to prove it...

Were we betting people, which we're not since the whole Peter Capaldi/One Direction thing, we'd put a pound or two on a trailer for The Equalizer being imminent. This is the big screen take on the TV show, which sees Denzel Washington in the lead role, and Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen, Training Day) directing.

The Equalizer is a film in which Sony has sufficient confidence to get a screenplay moving for a sequel. For the purposes of now though, it's the first official poster for the film. You can see that below...

The Equalizer is currently scheduled for release in September, with Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo co-starring.

Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer Nabs a Poster

16 April 2014 7:42 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Denzel Washington is a bad man in director Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer.” It’s a good thing, then, that there are even badder people in need of having their asses kicked, because that’s exactly what Washington’s character will be doing lots of in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the ’80s TV series of the same name. In the flick, Denzel plays “a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.” “Kick-Ass’s” Chloe Moretz will play Teri, the girl in need of saving. Which is amusing given that, well, Moretz played Hit-Girl in the “Kick-Ass” movies, and I don’t think anyone is going to confuse Hit-Girl with someone who needs saving. Anyways, the film co-stars Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman, »

First Poster For The Equalizer

16 April 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

So far, all that the world at large has seen of the new film version of classic ‘80s show The Equalizer is a couple of pictures featuring Denzel Washington looking grumpy in character as Robert McCall. We got a look at a scene last month at CinemaCon, and the poster is now online, which makes us think the trailer can’t be far behind. This updated peek into the world finds Washington as a slightly different take on Robert McCall, the retired intelligence officer played on the small screen by Edward Woodward, who decides to atone for his past sins by helping the hopeless.Working quietly at a Home Depot, McCall finds himself drawn into the life of a crusading vigilante when he helps out a young prostitute (Chloe Moretz). His actions draw the ire of the Russian mafia, and in particular a brutal fixer plated by Marton Csokas. While »

The Equalizer Poster Puts Denzel Washington In The Shadows

16 April 2014 6:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Before Law and Order started its crusade to clean up the streets (and employ Broadway actors) of New York, there was one man who was waging war on crime: Robert McCall, also known as The Equalizer. If you needed help with anything criminal, unsavory, or just plain unfair, this former intelligence agent would help you . free of charge. All you had to do was give him a call through his newspaper ad, and he'd be there to save you. Of course, almost three decades later, Hollywood thinks it's a good time to give The Equalizer a call and enlist him in the battle against moviegoer's wallets. Yahoo has premiered the teaser poster for the Antoine Fuqua-directed adaptation, and already it's managed to nail one thing that the original show was famous for: keeping its protagonist in the shadows. Denzel Washington is going to be this generation's Robert McCall, who »

Denzel Washington Hits the Road on First Poster for 'The Equalizer'

16 April 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

So far only a single first look photo from this fall's action thriller The Equalizer, based on the 80's CBS series of the same name, has surfaced, but there's already a sequel in development at Columbia Pictures due to reportedly overwhelmingly positive focus group tests. Now it sounds like the first trailer might be just around the corner as the first poster for the film starring Denzel Washington has arrived. Relying only on Washington's name and silhouette, the studio seems to be counting on a lot of people recognizing the title. At the very least, the poster is stylish, and we're glad it's just not Washington looking intimidating. Look! Here's the first poster for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer from Yahoo: The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) and written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 3, The Mechanic).

First Poster for Denzel Washington's 'The Equalizer'

So far the only look we've had at Antoine Fuqua's (Olympus Has Fallen), in The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, was the above picture. Tonight, however, Columbia Pictures has released the first poster for the film that reunites Washington with his Training Day director and rumor has it a sequel is already in the works. Loosely based on the late-'80s TV series centered on a private detective available for hire if you have a problem that you don't know how to solve, the film will be adjusted with Washington playing a character named 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 (Chloe 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. »
