The Equalizer: new international trailer

Trailer Ryan Lambie 27 May 2014 - 06:51

Denzel Washington stars in the forthcoming big-screen reboot of The Equalizer. Here's a new trailer...

The last film from director Antoine Fuqua was the bombastic action flick Olympus Has Fallen, in which Gerard Butler saved America from Whitehouse-wrecking terrorists. There's a hint of the same 80s throwback crunchiness to Fuqua's The Equalizer, too - appropriate, given that it's based on the CBS TV show from that very period.

This time, however, it's Denzel Washington in the role of McCall, a retired special operations agent who helps people in distress. But where Edward Woodward's McCall was restrained and quietly commanding, Washington's hero is tough, fast of reflex and possessed with the uncanny ability to take a man's eye out with a shot glass.

In Fuqua's film, these skills come in handy when he attempts to save a young innocent (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) from a gang of Russian gangsters. As you can see from the latest trailer below, much carnage ensues.

The Equalizer is out  on the 26th September in UK cinemas.
