Denzel Washington gets into action mode with first 'The Equalizer' trailer (Video)

By Daniel S Levine,

Denzel Washington is getting back into action movie mode with The Equalizer, which reunites him with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua.

The trailer, which hit the web this weekend, pretty much reveals the entire plot. Washington plays an author who has a secret skill set - he can kill a group of people in a matter of seconds. after a girl he meets is kidnapped, he goes after her and tries to kill a bunch of guys in 16 seconds. He does it in 19, which is a disappointment for him.

Washington then learns that the guys he killed were members of a mob, so now he’s got a bunch of more nasty people on his tail.

The running gag for Washington’s character in this film is him setting his watch to see how long it takes to kill someone. The trailer ends with him setting his watch again, as he’s about to kill some guy in a restaurant.

As Slate points out, the young girl in the film is played by Chloe Grace Moretz. The film is set to open in September and is distributed by Sony.
