Fresh off the debut images that were released the other day, Sony Pictures has now released a few more The Equalizer images ahead of the film’s trailer debut.  Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters.  The pic scored incredibly high during its first test screening, and Sony is already prepping a sequel in the hopes that this film hits big with audiences.  We’ll get a look at Washington in action when the trailer is released in the coming days.

Denzel Washington looks badass in first images from The Equalizer

14 hours ago | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Sony has released the first two images from The Equalizer, in which Denzel Washington plays former covert ops officer turned avenging angel, McCall. The new images show Washington in full-on badass mode, posing with a firearm in the pouring rain, and escorting Chloë Grace Moretz’s vulnerable teen through a pitch-black Boston night. The film is based upon an ‘80s TV show of the same name, but according to Washington, it’s the story’s big-screen qualities that drew him to the project. “It’s a classic story, the innocent girl 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 »

Chloë Grace Moretz Sports Red Hair In New Images From The Equalizer

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."

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."

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.

First Look: Denzel Washington & Chloe Grace Moretz in 'The Equalizer'

22 April 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following last week's teaser poster for the upcoming action thriller The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, a couple more first look photos have emerged online. One gives us another look at Washington as the titular character (who may havehad a viral classified ad placed in the New York Times), and the other shows him along with our first glimpse at Chloe Grace Moretz, the girl that brings The Equalizer out of retirement. Since this is coming from Columbia Pictures, we're betting the first trailer will arrive with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it should arrive online before then, so stay tuned. Photos below! Here's the new photos from Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer from USA Today: The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) and written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 3, The Mechanic).

Denzel is a Smooth Avenger in New Images from The Equalizer

22 April 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Hey, kids, set your eyeballs on eight new images from director Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer,” a big-screen adaptation of the ’80s TV show starring an English guy. The big-screen version stars an American guy named Denzel Washington, who, let’s face it, was born to play these roles. From what I’ve read, the movie is a pretty straightforward vigilante movie, and I suppose it’s possible they could launch a franchise with it. Until then, take a gander at the new pics of Denzel as a not-quite-so-retired badass, take a ganderers. 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.

First images from The Equalizer

22 April 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Bringing the classic t.v. show to the big screen, Denzel Washington certainly looks the part of black ops commando turned vigilante Thomas McCall in our first look, courtesy of USA Today, at Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer. The R-rated action movie has already gotten good reactions from test audiences (apparently they were so good, a sequel has been put on the fast track), and these first images, which also features Chloe Grace Moretz, do give me a good feeling about it. Mainly down to Washington being able to play the ultimate bad ass with the best of them. Released: 26th September (U.S.)/ 10th October (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Denzel 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. »

First Images from The Equalizer Starring Denzel Washington and Chloë Grace Moretz

22 April 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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. »
