IMAX Corporation and Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that The Equalizer, the reteaming of Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua , will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released in IMAX theaters worldwide starting September 26.

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

The film is based on the television series created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim.

"Antoine Fuqua is one of the most provocative filmmakers working today, and Denzel Washington is nothing short of being one of the greatest American movie stars," said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. "We're excited to be working with our long time partners at Sony Pictures Entertainment to bring this exciting film to IMAX moviegoers worldwide."

Rory Bruer , President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, "'The Equalizer' is a visceral action-thriller, and Denzel's character a man driven by a relentless pursuit of justice is one that is compelling for everyone. It's the kind of picture that is perfectly suited for The IMAX Experience."
