Equalizer 05

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington’s revival of The Equalizer is poised to rule the box office this weekend. The film is based on the 1980s television series of the same name—and favorite show of Max Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street—but Fuqua and Washington have put a modern twist on the classic thriller.

Both the star and director have plenty of action experience, including working together on the 2001 film Training Day, but how was the process of teaming up again for Fuqua and Washington? See the video below for answers.

The Equalizer is in theaters now.
