The trailer starts off with Washington encouraging co-star Chloe Grace Moretz ("Carrie"), who is looking a lot older than her 17 years (complete with wig!), to change her ways and straighten up her life. The thing is, it's just not that simple. She's all twisted up in the Russian mob and she can't get out.
After Washington witnesses her getting beaten by the aforementioned mob, he decides to take matters into his own hands. Let the badassdom begin.
From what we can tell, this movie will be filled with righteous retribution, impressive takedowns, explosions, and enough tension that you'll need help prying your fingers from your seat.
(It should be noted that "The Equalizer" is based on the '80s TV series of the same name, starring Edward Woodward. It should also be noted that Denzel doesn't appear to be as snappy a dresser as Woodward.)
"The Equalizer" hits theaters September 26, 2014.
