Poster for Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

2 hours ago | 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. »

The First Poster lands for Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer

12 hours ago | 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, »

First poster for The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington

16 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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

19 hours ago | 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

20 hours ago | 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 »

First Poster for Denzel Washington's 'The Equalizer'

21 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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. »

CinemaCon 2014: Sony Goes Superheroic

27 March 2014 3:22 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Because the studio hasn’t shown enough of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already, the CinemaCon audience was treated to 30 minutes spanning three scenes during Sony’s presentation on Wednesday.With its release date almost upon us, Spidey was naturally the star of the show, though Sony also confirmed plans for the Venom film and a Sinister Six spin-off.Given that we’d see nothing of it previously, the scene and sizzle reel for The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington was of more interest, and finds Washington reuniting with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua for a hard-nosed adaptation of the Edward Woodward series. The scene we saw found Washington putting the hurt on a Russian mob prostitution ring’s boss and his henchman in a swift 28 seconds.Comedy was represented by Sex Tape, with a batch of moments from the Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel film, and a predictably hilarious look at 22 Jump Street, »

‘The Equalizer 2′ Already Being Scripted

25 February 2014 10:03 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Don’t worry, you haven’t traveled forward in time to 2015 and missed the September release of the Denzel Washington vehicle The Equalizer. The truth is that Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have been screening their upcoming feature to test audiences and the results have been very promising with high scores from most viewers. This has made the companies involved so confident, that screenwriter Richard Wenk has just closed a deal to handle the sequel, 7 months before the first film hits theatres.

The R-rated film tested back in December and received the highest scores for an R-rated film in the companies’ histories. No deal has been struck with Denzel Washington as yet, but if he does reprise his role it will be the first sequel in his filmography.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is based on the 1980s TV series that starred The Wicker Man’s Edward Woodward. Woodward »

The Equalizer 2 in the Works with Denzel Washington Expected to Return

25 February 2014 4:23 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Both Sony Pictures and test audiences are said to be very happy with Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer, as the studio have now closed a deal with screenwriter Richard Wenk (who also wrote the first movie) to pen a sequel seven months before this instalment even released.

According to The Wrap, a mid-December test screening for the movie earned the highest scores for an R-rated movie in Sony’s history, something which they clearly felt couldn’t be ignored, hence why work on a sequel has already begun.

The site adds that star Denzel Washington is expected to reprise his role in a follow-up to the thriller, but negotiations are ongoing as his original contract didn’t include an option for a sequel. In fact, if he does star in The Equalizer 2, it would actually be the prolific actor’s first sequel!

Of course, it all depends on how well »

Denzel Washington's The Equalizer Sequel Already in the Works

24 February 2014 11:33 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Denzel Washington's upcoming crime thriller "The Equalizer" is set to hit theaters on September 26th. But despite the fact that we're still seven months away, Sony Pictures is feeling confident that it will be a hit, because the studio just hired Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, The Mechanic, 16 Blocks) to write a sequel. Washington is expected to return, but his deal has yet to be made. If "The Equalizer 2" happens, it will be the first sequel for the actor. No word if director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) or co-stars Chloe Moretz, Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman will return. "The Equalizer" is based on a television series and 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." »
