Home improvement face-off for Denzel Washington in ‘Equalizer’
News from The Malay Mail Online:

Denzel Washington promotes ‘The Equalizer’ on the first day of San Sebastian Film Festival September 19, 2014. — Reuters picLOS ANGELES, Sept 26 — After watching the “The Equalizer,” moviegoers might never see the friendly guy at the home improvement store who picks out their tools and plywood in the same way.

In the action thriller that opens in US theatres today, Denzel Washington plays McCall, an efficient, mild-mannered employee at Home Mart, who also happens to have a past as a trained killer and a way with tools.

“He’s resourceful,” the 59-year-old Washington told Reuters while promoting the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.

Washington thinks McCall did not even need a home improvement store at his disposal.

“It could have been this room,” he said. “There’s plenty of stuff … your shoe, the chain around your neck, your hair, the chair. You can do a lot of damage.”

The two-time Oscar winner reunites with Antoine Fuqua, his director from “Training Day,” for which Washington won his best actor statuette in 2002.

The film from Sony Corp’s Columbia Pictures is expected to be the top film at the North American box office this weekend, with ticket sales of US$ 35 million (RM114m), according to Boxoffice.com.
