Denzel Washington is badass in first international trailer for The Equalizer

05.26.2014

The first INTERNATIONAL trailer for Antoine Fuqua's THE EQUALIZER has been released, giving us a great first look at Fuqua's big screen version of the 1980's television series of the same name. The director has teamed up with his TRAINING DAY star Denzel Washington for the new movie, and Washington appears to be in full badass mode for THE EQUALIZER. The trailer has a MAN ON FIRE vibe I'm really digging, and even though I never saw the TV show, I definitely want to check out Fuqua's THE EQUALIZER.

"I'll be waiting for you."

Test screenings for Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua's new film have been so successful THE EQUALIZER 2 is already in the works, which is a little surprising since it would be the first sequel for the actor. If Washington wants to come back for another movie and they're already thinking about ideas for a sequel, I think that's a good sign for THE EQUALIZER, but with that also comes high expectations. However I'm fairly confident THE EQUALIZER will deliver exactly what most people want from the new movie: Denzel Washington being a bad mother trucker.

THE EQUALIZER also stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Melissa Leo, Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman, Haley Bennett and Vladimir Kulich, and will open on September 26, 2014.

For a Sept. release this will probably do really well. Looks like a great action movie.

Denzel Washington and Chloe Moretz in one film? I'm there.

I just hope the original music theme is incorporated into the movie.

As someone else mentioned,

it's a pretty generic plot line but Denzel Washington's presence automatically takes it up several notches.

My only beef is that they didn't bring back Stewart Copeland to do the music. His theme for the original TV show was amazing.

Hate that it's based on a pre-existing show (there just seem to be less and less originality in movies lately) but it looks pretty decent.

Looks cool but Denzel's getting old....

The key will be to make it as realistic as possible. It only works if they can make it believable.

I hope in some capacity they manage to work in the theme song from the TV show. That was one of the greatest synthesized theme songs ever.

I'm curious to know how many here were actually old enough to remember the TV Series. This is obviously much more violent then the series but it still retains that vibe while putting a modern twist on it. As a fan of the series, I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I think there was a horrible mix up when Man on Fire was released...it was supposed to have been called Punisher (Jane's movie came out the same year, as I recall). Awesome movie. This looks like it could have been a prequel to Man on Fire given that a sequel wouldn't work.

I was going to post the same thing about Man on Fire and Punisher but you beat me to it. Great minds think alike.

Man on Fire was a remake. It was never going to be called the Punisher, WTF did this bull come from?

I'm totally down for this!

Denzel doesn't seem to age. I love Man on Fire, and this looks along those lines. I remember the show from the 80's. This is going to be pretty good.

Truth is... It's a very tired, cliché, genre picture. But you add Mr. Denzel Washington in the lead role... and it instantly becomes insanely watchable and exciting. Can't wait. Very Man On Fire-esque.

Most Anticipated

I've been waiting on a trailer for this to see where my level of expectations would be and after seeing the trailer, my expectations are very high. I can't wait to see this.

Looks like a sequel to "Man On Fire."

Which is alright with me because that move was bad-ass and this one looks like it kicks as much ass!

Denzel being Denzel

Movies like this are a warm blanket in a cold winter day. I f'in love it and Denzel just looks so natural and comfortable in these types of roles.

Damn! Aside from X-Men: Days of Future Past, this is my 2nd most anticipated movie of the year. Denzel still got it. Hope I don't sound like a perv but Chloe Grace Moretz looks hot in this movie. Does anybody know what kind of watch Denzel wore in the movie?

Hehe, don't Spoiler me yet. I haven't seen it but it's my number 1 most anticipated of the summer. But I agree, it's great to see Bryan Singer back in the director's chair.
