New EQUALIZER Trailer and Poster Hit

Columbia Pictures has released a new online-only trailer and poster for Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer, which makes heavy use of Eminem’s new song with Sia, “Guts Over Fear.”

The Denzel Washington-starring thriller written by Richard Wenk adapts the ’80s TV show of the same name about a man who has left his life as a black ops commando to work on the quieter side of things, but has to help a troubled young prostitute when she is mistreated by ultra-violent Russian gangsters, of course.

Also starring Marton Csokas, Chloë Grace Moretz, Melissa Leo, Bill Pullman, David Meunier and David Harbour, the film will arrive in theaters and IMAX on September 26, following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

You can watch the trailer and poster below.

Can’t we come up with better villains than the Armenian mob? Besides, Robert McCall never looked like a badass. I’m not sure if it’s going to spawn a franchise.

The posters have been pretty underwhelming, but this one is better. Looks like a good attempt at a Sin City poster.
