Second Trailer for Antoine Fuqua's 'The Magnificent Seven' Remake
"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:
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.
