The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington

The film will make its world premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month, before it opens the San Sebastian Film Festival, also in September, a few days after it debuts at TIFF, before Sony Pictures releases it Stateside on September 26, 2014.

Chloe Moretz, Marton Csokas and Melissa Leo, co-star with Denzel Washington in the film, which is directed by Washington's "Training Day" helmer, Antoine Fuqua, from a script written by Richard Wenk. 

The reportedly $50 million project is said to be designed to launch the first film franchise for Mr Washington - hence, if this first film does well, expect sequels. One has already been greenlit, even though the first film hasn't been released yet. As previously noted, it's said to have scored particularly well with test audience.

The TV series the film is based on was set in New York, and centered on a former secret agent (played by the late Edward Woodward) with a "mysterious past" who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as an investigator, aided by a diverse group of other sometimes-mysterious contacts (some of whom date back to his spying days).

In the film adaptation, Washington plays Robert McCall, a retired intelligence operator who faked his own death to live under the radar. But after finding a young woman (played by Chloe Moretz) in trouble with the Russian mob, he returns to action to use his extreme tactics for good.

In the newly-released 2 videos below, first, in a scene from the movie, Washington gets into a tense exchange with his Russian adversary (played by Marton Csokas); and in the second clip, a behind-the-scenes featurette, Washington, Fuqua and the film's stuntmen, talk the "special skills" The Equalizer possesses, which he employs from time to time, when necessary:
