Columbia Pictures has released the first photos from director Antoine Fuqua's THE EQUALIZER, starring Denzel Washington in the title role as well as Chloë Grace Moretz. The film hits theaters on September 26th. Get a first look below, courtesy of USA Today.

In the drama, Denzel Washington portrays 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 (Chloë Grace 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.

Denzel Washington, who was last seen on Broadway in Fences, winning a 2010 Tony Award, can currently be seen in Broadway's A Raisin in the Sun, portraying Walter Lee Younger.

The actor made his Broadway debut in Checkmates (1988). Other theatre credits include Richard III, The Mighty Gents, Ceremonies in Dark Old Men, When the Chickens Come Home to Roost and A Soldier's Play, for which he won an Obie. He is a two-time Academy Award winner for his performances in Training Day and Glory, and received Oscar nominations for his performances in The Hurricane, Malcolm X and Cry Freedom.
