Thanks to USA Today, we now have two new photos from Denzel Washington's upcoming "The Equalizer" crime thriller, which is directed by Anthony Fuqua, the man behind Washington's "Training Day." Check everything out below. Plot: Based on a television series, the story revolves around a veteran covert operative who, seeking redemption for his dark deeds, quits a CIA-like agency and puts a classified advertisement in the paper that reads simply: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer." The film co-stars Chloe Moretz as a young prostitute who needs help, Marton Csokas as the main villain, and Melissa Leo as the CIA Chief. It's set to hit theaters on September 26th. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
With a first trailer surely just around the corner, Sony has released a pair of images from its upcoming big screen take on the classic 1980s TV series The Equalizer, showcasing Denzel Washington alongside Chloe Grace Moretz…
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 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:
“The title doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s the material… It’s a classic story, »

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. Sony Pictures has rebooted the property as a film franchise, with Denzel Washington talking the lead as McCall, a former black ops commando who faked his own death so he could live out a peaceful life in Boston. 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.

If there’s one thing that everyone can agree is missing from Sony’s rebooted Amazing Spider-Man series, it’s Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson – presumably, because J.K. Simmons done such a fine job at portraying him in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.
Well, it seems that we might get to see Jameson in 2016′s The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with director Marc Webb teasing his inclusion during Google+ Hangout to promote the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
“I like the idea very much of him coming up in the next film. It was more easy to accept a new Spider-Man than someone who could out do J.K. Simmons in that role. He is so iconic. That’s something we’ve really talked about. Obviously I love that character because he poses such an interesting dilemma for Spider-Man. The answer is I don’t know but I think »

Following the release of the first poster for The Equalizer, we now have a new batch of stills just days before the release of the first trailer for the big screen remake of the TV series which ran from 1985 – 1989 and starred the late Edward Woodward.
In a recent interview, Washington said that he’s not feeling under pressure to live up to the high standards set by fans of the TV show, stating: “The title doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s the material. 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.”

So far we've seen an early first look at Denzel Washington in The Equalizer and, more recently, a teaser poster, and today USA Today has revealed two more images from the film along with our first look at Chloe Grace Moretz as the young girl Washington's character comes out of retirement to rescue.

Sony Pictures has released the first images from The Equalizer. The movie is based off the 1980s TV series, and stars Denzel Washington as a former covert operations officer who dedicates his life to helping people in trouble. However, Washington says it wasn't the original series that drew him to the project; it was the material. "It's a classic story, the innocent girl and the guy coming in to save the day and kick some butt," Washington tells USA Today. "You'll get some popcorn and escape for a couple of hours." Washington seems to enjoy making these kinds of movies since five of his last six films have had action elements. The Equalizer could turn into a franchise for Washington since a sequel is already in the works. But Washington remains cautious saying, "You can't make No. 2 before you make No. 1. It's called show business. We've handled the show part of it. »

If you’re yet to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and really don’t want to be spoiled, then you ought to stop reading and turn back now. Seriously. Major spoilers follow. You have been warned…
Well, after a couple of years of rampant speculation, and a marketing campaign that pretty much gave it away anyway, Sony and director Marc Webb took a leaf out of the classic Spider-Man comic book arc ‘The Night Gwen Stacy Died’ with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Emma Stone’s Gwen fell to her death during the climactic battle between Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan). Speaking to Digital Spy, Webb offered some insight into the decision to incorporate Gwen’s death into the sequel:
“It was something that, you know, as a fan of the comic books, it had such a profound effect on the culture, and me, even though »

Sony Pictures' adaptation of the TV series, The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington, will be released on September 26, 2014. Chloe Moretz, Marton Csokas and Melissa Leo, co-star with Washington in the film, which, by the way, is being directed by Washington's Training Day helmer, Antoine Fuqua, from a script written by Richard Wenk. Director Nicolas Winding Refn had the job initially, but then walked away from it, after he and the studio couldn't reach an agreement. The reportedly $50 million project is said to be designed to launch the first film franchise for Mr Washington - hence, if the first »

Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast
I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t a huge fan of the first one; the trailer looked generic
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we’ve had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers badly by comparison. This looks like a throwback to a time when comic book movies were kiddie stuff and nothing else. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s, and not the smart, relevant science-fiction action drama the genre has matured into on the big screen. »

Take heed, evildoers -- here comes "The Equalizer." Denzel Washington casts a long shadow in the simple, classy first poster for the upcoming thriller based on the 1980s TV series of the same name.

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, »
