Denzel Washington has done it again reports Essence. This weekend, his new thriller The Equalizer debuted, making a big splash with $35 million at the box office. The film follows the former commando (Washington) as he leaves his quiet Boston life to go to war with the Russian mafia, after a prostitute acquaintance (Chloe Grace Moretz) goes missing. The Equalizer's high opening numbers marks Washington's third-best debut, in his career, trailing behind 2012's Safe House, and 2007's American Gangster.
