*The first international trailer for director Antoine Fuqua’s thriller “The Equalizer” hit the web Monday, showing star Denzel Washington taking on organized crime after witnessing the brutal beatdown of a young prostitute.
Chloe Grace Moretz stars as the hardened “damsel in distress” that Washington’s Robert McCall rescues after a seemingly chance encounter, setting off a war between him and the Russian mob. Melissa Leo, Marton Csokas and Haley Bennett also star.
The drama is based on Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim’s 1980s CBS show that reteams Washington with his “Training Day” director, Fuqua.
Sony is set to release the film on September 26. A sequel, which is also penned by Richard Wenk is in the works.
Watch its first international trailer below.
