Following The Equalizer banner spotted at CinemaCon, Columbia Pictures has released the first poster for director Antoine Fuqua‘s film version of classic ‘80s show, starring Denzel Washington.

The upcoming action-thriller sees Washington in the lead role as a former black ops agent who rescues a teenage prostitute named Teri (Chloe Moretz), but 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.

Loosely based on the late-’80s TV series, the film returns Washington under the helm of his Training Day director Fuqua.

The poster looks  stylish, a striking one and hopefully is a sign that the trailer can’t be far behind.

The Equalizer will be in theaters on September 26th, co-starring Marton Csokas, David Harbour, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.

Check out the the first official poster for a big screen version of the CBS series featuring Edward Woodward.
