Denzel Washington taking on the mantel of The Equalizer, first portrayed by the great -- and very British -- Edward Woodward in the 1980s TV series, I'm all for it. Why? It's Denzel Washington, dammit. The man does no wrong.
The flick, directed by Denzel's Training Day partner Antione Fuqua, doesn't hit until Sept. 26, but we've scored some new images from the movie thanks to the fine folks at USA Today.
Chloe Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo also star. Early screenings have been positive enough that Sony Pictures is already prepping a sequel. Here's hoping this is an old-school action movie befitting the series in which it is based.
The Equalizer featured Woodward as a retired intelligence agent who used his skills to help various threatened clients even the odds.
