Columbia Pictures has released the first look at Denzel Washington as he reteams with his Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen), in The Equalizer, which is loosely based on the late-'80s TV series centered on a private detective available for hire for problems you just don't know how to solve. Washington plays what has been described as a solitary, monastic figure who hates injustice and devotes himself to helping people who are being victimized. With a no-nonsense attitude, compassion and experience with dealing with a wide variety of situations he's a powerful and useful detective. The film doesn't hit theaters until September 26, 2014 and co-stars include Chloe Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Haley Bennett, Johnny Messner and Robert Wahlberg. This film has had something of a rough path to production with both Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) dropping off the picture. »
