By Drax Largo on May 26th, 2014

The first trailer for the big-screen reboot of The Equalizer is now live for your viewing pleasure. You know the drill.

Denzel Washington stars in the title role, with a supporting cast that includes Chloe Grace Moretz, David Meunier, Melissa Leo, and Marton Csokas.

Originally a TV series, The Equalizer ran on CBS from 1985 to 1989 and starred Edward Woodward (The Wicker Man) as a mysterious dude named Robert McCall. He was a former spy, who had left the Agency that he worked for. He is trying to make a normal life and also establish a link with his estranged son. He also has to deal with his former superior, who needs his help every now and then, which is why he left the Agency and people from his days as a spy. But for whatever reason, he takes out an ad in the newspaper that states “Got a problem, need help, odds against you, then call The Equalizer.”

Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen) will direct from a script by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2).

The Equalizer is set for release September 26, 2014.
