Remaking films is not an inherently bad (John Carpenter’s The) thing. Having Antoine Fuqua deliver up a new take on one of most iconic films of the Western genre may have ruffled a few old feathers but the director has given us some compelling, character-driven entertainment thus far. This first trailer for The Magnificent Seven looks to be continuing that trend.
Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeie are your titular ensemble, and Peter Sarsgaard turns up also.
Check out the trailer below, along with some great images from the film.
Your synopsis hunt is all done now, friend.
With the sleepy town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate towns people employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).
As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
And here you have some fine images from the film, tip o’the hat stranger.
