"It is about a guy who is a knight in shining armor, except he lives in a world where knights don't exist anymore."
Sony has released the firs trailer for "The Equalizer," the drama based on Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim's 1980s CBS show that reteams Denzel Washington with his "Training Day" director, Antoine Fuqua. Chloe Grace Moretz stars as the hardened "damsel in distress" that Washington's Robert McCall rescues after a seemingly chance encounter, setting off a war between him and the Russian mob. Melissa Leo, Marton Csokas and Haley Bennett also star.
The film is set to bow September 26 and a sequel, which is also penned by Richard Wenk is in the works.
