Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) reunites with Academy Award winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, Training Day, 2002) for the gritty, action-packed thriller THE EQUALIZER, available on Digital HD Dec. 16 and on Blu-ray and DVD Dec. 30 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. After retiring from the world of government intelligence, Robert McCall (Washington) believes he has put his past behind him and is determined to dedicate himself to a new, quiet life.

THE EQUALIZER also stars Marton Csokas (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), David Harbour (“Manhattan”), Haley Bennett (The Haunting of Molly Hartley), Bill Pullman (Independence Day), and Academy Award winner Melissa Leo (Best Actress, The Fighter, 2011).
