The Magnificent Seven Trailer

"What a bunch of misfits we are." Sony Pictures has unveiled the second official, full theatrical trailer for The Magnificent Seven, Antoine Fuqua's remake of the action western of the same name (which was originally a reinvention of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai). The new "seven" who come together to defend a town are: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier. The villain is played by Peter Sarsgaard; also featuring Haley Bennett, Vinnie Jones and Cam Gigandet. The first teaser trailer was actually pretty good, and this new trailer ups the ante with plenty of wild west action and sly glances from nearly the entire cast. I also dig the introductions to each of the new seven. Feels weird to say, but this doesn't look so bad. Fire this up!

Here's the new full theatrical trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven, from Sony's YouTube:

And here's an alternate international trailer of the new The Magnificent Seven trailer, also on YouTube:

You can still see the first teaser trailer for The Magnificent Seven here, to compare footage from these two.

With the small town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople 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. The Magnificent Seven (2016 version) is directed by Antoine Fuqua, of Training Day, King Arthur, Shooter, Brooklyn's Finest, The Equalizer and Southpaw previously. The screenplay is by John Lee Hancock & Nic Pizzolatto, remaking Akira Kurosawa's original Seven Samurai (which was also remade into 1960 in a western by John Sturges). Sony Pictures will release The Magnificent Seven in theaters starting September 23rd this fall.

  • Quite like the look of it. Even liked the music.
  • The cast is amazing. Denzel Washington and D'Onofrio are two exceptional actors. But will the script be good enough to rival with the original? I hope so. Please, don't make a shot for shot remake.
    • Bo
      Don't worry, it isn't going to be a shot for shot thing, but they'd be better off if they did something like that then what they have done here. It just looks so silly and immature with all the quipping from Pratt...I mean, come on...these guys compared to the likes of McQueen and Bronson and Coburn. Come on, now!
      • I know exactly what you mean. But I am an anti-remakes guy, unless the remake fulfill the following conditions: 1- The original movie has a great concept but didn't age well or was poorly directed. 2- The remake brings something new and fresh to the table. The original Magnificent Seven still holds well, so I hope at least it will explore the mythology from a fresh perspective. Actors with this tremendous amount of charisma like McQueen, Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Eli Wallach, and charles Bronson are really missed. Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, William Holden, Richard Widmark, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Lee J. Cobb... We no longer make actors like those.

          Hey, tarek. Yea, I loved this post of yours and all the actors you mentioned. We are certainly on the same page with this, that's for sure. There simply is no one, and I mean no one, these days who even come close to these guys! I too am not much interested in remakes. Especially one like this where the original is just too good. This silly new one just isn't going to measure up. Not for me. I can tell by the trailer so maybe, maybe, out of curiosity, I'll watch it whenever it comes around on cable and shake my head and poo-poo how clueless they were in making it. Later.
  • Trey
    looks fun
  • Robert Palmar
    It looks promising except for that migraine-enduing trailer music which I hope was just a dumb decision to appear hip for sake of the trailer and no such noise will be present in the film.
    • shiboleth
      Hahahahahaha ... Absolutely ...
    • Bo
      Well said. It's just an indication of how silly modern movies are by putting hip hop music to a Western and one like The Mag Seven. It's an embarrassment and shows that today's filmmakers and actors and their sensibilities concerning material like this is clearly lacking from what it used to be. Tis sad indeed!
      • grimjob
        That scene in Django Unchained... Can't understand Tarantino's inclusion of that song. Terrible.
        • Bo
          Thanks for your reply, but I can't remember what scene you're referring to or what song. Can you help me out? Thanks.
          • grimjob
            I tried posting a youtube video of the scene, but it looks like it wasn't allowed. The song is called 100 Black Coffins by Rick Ross. Just doesn't fit. Plays while Django was on horseback with Candie's caravan.
          • Bo
            Thanks for responding. I don't remember it. I'm not a fan of Tarantino's work, but I did find Django a bit amusing and surprised myself for enjoying it watching from home. I didn't pay much attention to it other than allowing myself to chuckle with amusement in different parts. I'll take you at your word on this as pretty much all of QT's creative decisions have no resonance for me. Cheers.
          • grimjob
            Fair enough. I'm a huge fan of his, and that sequence completely turned me off. See you around.
    • Because they are trying to sound cool, to appeal this hip hoppy young generation. Shake your @ss baby! Rihanna is proud of you.
  • DAVIDPD
    I love Western films and I will see this, but damn, my hopes are not very high.
  • eurogibbon
    Wasn't this going to be set in modern day Mexico vs the cartel? Can't help thinking that would have been more interesting.
    • shiboleth
      You just read my thoughts. I can not but agree with you ...
  • Brandon
    I can pretty much watch Denzel in anything and I do like Pratt, D'Onofrio and Sarsgaard so I guess I'm in.
  • shiboleth
    This is going to be a real mindless fun. I have no expectations for anything else. And I hope that mr. A. Kurosawa sleeps very deeply and is not seeing this; wherever he is in his otherworldly existence ...
  • I'm so tired of hearing songs in situations where they shouldn't be. Referring to the second trailer.
  • grimjob
    Dig the cast. I'm sure it'll be a fun watch, but ultimately forgettable.
  • love it! by the way everything from mr fuqua!
  • SuperDelicate
    None better than Denzel, but he looks a little frumpy in this. Fire the wardrobe guy.
