“If this were a TV show, I’d watch it every single week.” These were the words I spoke right after watching Antoine Fuqua’s theatrical version of ‘The Equalizer,’ which is kind of a dumb thing to say considering that ‘The Equalizer’ was a TV show. Though, this updated version of ‘The Equalizer’ bears little resemblance to the mid-‘80s version, even though it kind of has everything to do with it.

First of all, Antoine Fuqua – who directed ‘The Equalizer’ (which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) and directed Washington in his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Training Day’ – is the definition of the word “character.” When you enter a hotel room to interview Fuqua, personality is just bouncing off of the walls.

The new trailer for 'The Equalizer' essentially doubles down on what the other trailers have only hinted at: this movie is all about taking weird pleasure in watching a remarkably calm Denzel Washington kill off the Russian mob. It looks nothing like the TV show it's supposedly based on, but it does look like it'll fall right in line with the bulk of Washington's modern filmography. Once again, he plays the coolest guy in the room and once again, he's a good enough actor to make it all look oh-so-easy.

With the 'Equalizer' trailer dropping soon, we'll finally get to see Denzel Washington in action as a retired government official turned vigilante -- not to mention Chloe Moretz as a prostitute (though in her case, we don't mean that kind of action). But before then, new photos from the film, based on the classic '80s TV series of the same name, give us a peek at what's in store.
