Denzel Washington and his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua celebrated the latest chapter of their ongoing partnership on Monday night with the New York City premiere of their new film The Equalizer.

"We know each other, so there's a shorthand. And he knows what he's doing, so I don't have to worry about what he's doing; I just have to worry about what I'm doing and come to work with a fully realized character," Washington told The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet.
Later at the afterparty Fuqua said it was almost a seamless transition, despite the decade-plus gap between the two films.
