Queen Latifah Is Using Her Powers for Good in First Look at The Equalizer Trailer

The Equalizer trailer is here! 

PEOPLE's exclusive first look at the CBS remake introduces Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall, a single mother who apparently is "really bad" at "minding her own business" and recently left her job.

"What's up with you, mom?" Robyn's teenaged daughter (Laya DeLeon Hayes) asks. "Out of no where, you quit your job last month and won't talk about it. You loved traveling all over the world, being the big shot at your charity."

"It's complicated," Robyn responds as footage makes it clear her former employer was no charity — it was the CIA. And, as we soon learn, they want her back… or else they may become her enemy.

"I don't work for them anymore," she says. "I'm using my powers for good."

Later, she adds, "When I can't sleep, it's not because of all the things I've done. It's because of all the people that I couldn't save."

The upcoming series, premiering Feb. 7 after the Super Bowl, is the latest reimagining of the 1980s series of the same name. The Equalizer was previously adapted into a movie with Denzel Washington in 2014, with a sequel following in 2018.

The full cast also includes  Chris Noth, Lorraine Toussaint, Adam Goldberg, Tory Kittles and Liza Lapira. 

The Equalizer premieres Feb. 7 on CBS following the Super Bowl and airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS starting Feb. 14.
