The Equalizer – Antoine Fuqua Featurette

Antoine Fuqua has made some terrific action movies during his career, and he is set to return to this genre with The Equalizer.

The Equalizer sees the director reunite with Denzel Washington, while Chloe Grace Moretz, Bill Pullman and Marton Csokas are also on board.

In this new featurette the cast and crew talk about working with Fuqua:

In The Equalizer, Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston.

When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened.

If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

The Equalizer is released 26th September.

Making up the fourth man in a game of tennis doubles, his natural sporting ability and opportunistic eye provide him an unlikely entrance to a world where making money is both easy and fast.

Depending on your access to the right amount of capital, that is. When Giovanni suggests Dino join his latest fund scheme, with a mere 500,000, Dino, is so desperate to be a part of the Bernaschi circle that he puts his own house and business up as collateral.

From the rich and bored wife Carla (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), with misguided aspirations of artistic patronage, this multi-layered human drama serves up an absorbing treatise on how the rich can ride roughshod over the ‘little people’ when their security is threatened
