MUMBAI: After playing the criminal gone rogue, Denzel Washington now takes on the role of a vigilante out to protect the needful in the new action thriller, The Equalizer. Sony Pictures released the trailer for the new film earlier today.
In The Equalizer, 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, he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalise the helpless, McCall's desire for justice is reawakened. 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.
Along with Academy Award winner Denzel Washington (Glory, Training Day), The Equalizer also stars MTV Movie Award winner Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Carrie) and Academy Award winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter). Washington produces the film along with Batman vs. Super: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder. The film is based on the 1980s’ television series that starred Golden Globe Award winning Edward Woodward as a middle aged retired intelligence officer with a mysterious past who helps people in trouble.
