Weekend Box Office Report: Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’ Triumphs

When you put Denzel Washington in an action movie, you've written your meal ticket for the foreseeable future. Few actors are as consistent as Washington with their opening weekends, even when the project looks like something everyone has seen countless times before.
