The Boys and Girls Clubs of America has been an organization close to Denzel Washington’s heart since he was a young child — as a boy, both him and Antoine Fuqua spent their extra time there after school and credit them for being a positive influence in their lives.
Check out this interview and see how they equalize and give back to the youth by becoming positive role models through this great organization! THE EQUALIZER hits theaters September 26th!
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 (Chloë 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.
