Is this based on the original TV series or is it just a similar name? One or the other, it looks tired.
 
Synopsis: In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays 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.
 
The Equalizer features Denzel Washington, Chloë Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.

The Equalizer arrives September 26th, 2014.

 Edward Woodward is..... The Equalizer.

Denzel Washington is... The Extraneous Solution.

I like Denzel (who doesn't) but persoanlly I think they should've been truer to the original on this and cast an older Brit.

I'm a brit and, no... I don't think they should!

From what i have read it seems like the same premise, where he comes from makes no difference.

I was never a huge fan of the show, but it's have one of the greatest title sequences ever, super lurid..!

I really liked the original show. I don't think the person has to be British. Woodward's character was former CIA, so an American playing the role would not be a particular problem.

 Yeah a English Dude should have this role they should have Idris Elba play Him , He's British  an stars in a Brtish show Luther , not Denzel , but still either way both are good Actors . They only released season one on DVD of the original Equalizer. I had my local Libary order it , such a good show .. Sure they are make  Him an American a CIA agent rather thana MI6 agent with Denzel . And the video is broke

 I loved the original show and I think this looks great also.

 From the reviews I heard. This is supposed to be a really good film. Too bad the trailer got taken down before I could see it.

 Nobody ever has problems with Brits playing Americans (e.g. The Walking Dead) so I don't know why when that situation is reversed, it even gets mentioned here. Watched the trailer elsewhere (Sony shut it down on Mania). Sure we've seen this before but that's true of lots of movies (like endless Comic Book Super-Hero tripe). Whether or not you find it tired is a personal preference. How many times can you eat your favorite meal before you grow tired of it (some would say that  they would never grow tired of it)? At least the (accomplished) lead actor in this one can act which is more than I can say about most of the recycled garbage out there.
