The Equalizer (2014) Theatrical Trailer
Theatrical trailer for The Equilizer.
Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
Based on the popular series from the 1980s, the primary story of the film adaptation was meant to be centered on an older actress. Chloë Grace Moretz was able to impress director Antoine Fuqua so much that he re-wrote the character in as being younger.
The role seems a comfortable fit for Denzel Washington, as it would have Russell Crowe, who was originally cast for the part.
