Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has unveiled details about the upcoming release of The Equalizer, bringing the gritty, action-packed thriller by “training Day”-director Antoine Fuqua to Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in late December.
McCall (Denzel Washington) has put his mysterious past behind him and is dedicated to living a new, quiet life. But when he meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by. 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 DVD version will contain the two Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes ”Home Mart”, which takes a look at the film’s climactic Home Mart sequence, and ”Children of the Night”, in which Moretz discusses her character, Teri and the research she did to play the young, exploited girl.
The Blu-Ray version includes the same featurettes but adds to the four more Featurettes. ”Inside The Equalizer” explores the creative process of re-imagining and bringing Robert McCall to life, while ”Denzel Washington: A Different Kind of Superhero” is a behind-the-scenes look at how Washington trained for his physically demanding role in this film.
”Equalizer Vision: Antoine Fuqua” is a firsthand look at the movie-making process from the Director, and ”One Man Army: Training and Fighting” offers up a discussion with Washington, Csokas & stunt coordinator, Keith Woulard, on the process of building a one-man army.
The Blu-Ray version will also contain a Photo Gallery.
“The Equalizer” will be in stores on December 30 for $34.99 on Blu-Ray Disc and $30.99 on DVD.
