Lynn Shelton’s latest indie dramedy, Laggies, not only comes with the largest budget that the director’s ever worked with, but also the first script she did not pen herself (written instead by Andrea Seigel). Set on the outskirts of Seattle, the film tracks Megan (Keira Knightley), a young woman out of graduate school, working as the underemployed “sign girl” for her father’s tax firm and as she describes it, “floating,” through life. Still hanging out with the high school friends she went to prom with and dating the same high school sweetheart, Keira has a crisis of confidence when her boyfriend (Mark Webber) attempts to propose to her at a friend’s wedding.
The early representations of Megan friends paint the group as square and simple. A joke Megan makes a bout a Buddha statue’s nipples offends her one friend (portrayed effectively by the perpetually underused »

Former black ops agent McCall delivers a pair of broken and bloodied sunglasses to a Russian mob member, threatening his boss as the search for a missing Russian prostitute continues in the first of three clips from the upcoming action thriller The Equalizer. Denzel Washington stars as a trained killer in hiding who is forced out of retirement to help a young girl on the streets. Here, we also see McCall's kinder side as he helps a friend clean-up fire damage which may have been caused by the gangsters he is hunting. The third and final clip introduces Chloe Moretz as Teri, a beat-up prostitute looking for solace, which she finds in a very understanding McCall. Check out this buffet of footage before The Equalizer hits theaters later this September.
Robert McCall is a solitary, ex-special ops, monastic figure who despises injustice and devotes himself to helping victims of criminals. »

The summer movie season is officially over, and this weekend we finally head into fall. Most of these impending new releases are vying for that elusive Oscar gold or any other semi-prestigious award being presented. We start this cinematic journey by looking at all the upcoming movies September has to offer. This first fall month is a little overcrowded, promising a fine mix of genre fare. We have a couple of Academy worthy dramas making their debut, an untested family franchise starter, a handful of comedies, yet another Ya novel adaptation, an action epic based on a cult classic TV show, the return of an iconic trio and one independent coming-of-age shocker that promises to push the boundaries of everything that has arrived before it. Hold onto your seats...
Here are this September's can't miss releases:

Oscar winner Denzel Washington plays Robert McCall, a retired special-ops commando, who is out to save a young hooker played by Chloe Grace Moretz in a new trailer for “The Equalizer” that features music by Eminem. The rapper made the soundtrack with his song “Guts Over Fear.” The movie is a knock-off of the popular television show that starred Edward Woodward as the secret agent turned detective. It ran from 1985 until 1989. [...] »
Hitting cinemas in the UK and the USA on the 26th September, The Equalizer sees Denzel Washington play Robert McCall, a role made famous by the late, great Edward Woodward in the superb 1980s original series of the same name.

Denzel Washington's new rock-'em sock-'em thriller "The Equalizer" is the unlikely opener of this year's Toronto International Film Festival, a lavish, ten-day-long affair that features hundreds of movies, of every flavor, texture, and genre from all over the world.
This is a festival that caters specifically to its audiences, though, with the audience award winners usually going on to capture Oscar gold as well, and in that respect, "The Equalizer" is a perfect choice -- it's going to get the people whooping. In our exclusive clip, though, which takes place in the calm before the storm, you'll get to see Denzel bonding with a young prostitute, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.
The sequence is just a minute long, although this might be the only minute in the entire movie when Denzel Washington isn't brutally kicking someone's butt. Washington plays a lowly worker at a Home Depot-style home improvement store »

The cinematic adaptation of hit Edward Woodward show The Equalizer is almost upon us. With Denzel Washington giving it his Man On Fire Best, the film looks to be a decent and brutal action film in which a former black ops agent comes out of retirement to rescue a young girl. The title comes from the fact he likes to restore the balance somewhat, kind of like Darth Vader when he throws the Emperor down that chasm. Antoine Fuqua reteams with Washington, and if Training Day is anything to go by then this looks set to be a hard hitting and explosive film. Hell, it even has Washington being a cool guy and not looking at explosions.

Last August, when director Antoine Fuqua was filming The Equalizer outside of Boston, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters. Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director 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 film also stars Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas, Haley Bennett, David Harbour, and Bill Pullman. I learned a lot about the movie on the set visit and walked away thinking the film could turn out great, especially with Washington playing an ass-kicking hero defending folks that need help. When Sony test screened the movie, the pic scored huge numbers and they’re already prepping a sequel, which »

Do you need more things equal in your life? Then you’re in luck with this new trailer and poster for The Equalizer who really should be working hard on the gender divide rather than sticking it to a few low-level pimps but this is Hollywood after all.
Denzel Washington steps back into pissed-off older man territory, shouldering up to Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford, but the man has got form – Training Day (also with Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua) for one.
And though a generation of us mourn Edward Woodward it’s no surprise to see Sony throwing a spotlight on this one for the kids of today. Washington is joined by Chloe Moretz who needs to do something special after If I Stay and Carrie in order to regain the spark she had with Kick-Ass.
Here’s a trailer, which looks suitably nuts.

Venice — The absence of hefty U.S. fare is beginning to be felt as the Venice Festival enters its second stretch.
Many of this year’s really big guns — the Weinstein Co.’s Oscar hopeful “The Imitation Game,” Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer,” David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice” — are now firing off at Telluride, Toronto and even, in Anderson and Fincher’s case, the New York Film Festival.
Ethan Hawke starrer “Good Kill,” sold by Voltage Pictures and on paper Hollywood’s biggest indie commercial play at Venice, has still to world preem on the Lido. Given the high costs of opening a film on the Lido, especially for star-studded U.S. movies, however, Venice’s 71st edition raises the question of whether the balance of fest power is shifting to North America.
In the past two decades, Venice has held world premieres for several hundreds of U. »
