First Look At Denzel Washington As The Equalizer, Nonchalant With A Gun‏

The script for Antoine Fuqua’s Equalizer movie has won some plaudits from online screenplay pundits and, infamously, a heap of scorn from director Nicolas Winding Refn, but we’re not here to talk about those words. We’re here for a picture.

So here’s the first official image of Denzel Washington in the lead role, via Shadow and Act. He’s being rather nonchalant with that gun, don’t you think? I guess that’s a threatening confidence. In theory.

Well, Washington is nothing if not assured and that’s the way he’d best play this character, I’m sure, so it’s not a bad choice of attitude.

Expect to see The Equalizer in US cinemas on September 16th next year. If you don’t know the 1980s TV series it was based upon, a kind of soft soap Death Wish, then here are the opening and closing titles. This will give you some kind of idea.
