The Magnificent Seven Trailer

"So you seek revenge?" "I seek righteousness, but I'll take revenge." It's time to see if this remake is worthy of our attention. Sony has unveiled the first official trailer for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven, directed by Antoine Fuqua. The new "seven" this time 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. This definitely has a nice old west vibe to it, but other than that it's still hard to tell if will live up to the original(s) or not. I do like this trailer - they found the right music to use, and the big cast looks like they're having fun, it could honestly be much worse. I won't say I'm totally excited yet but I won't dismiss it either. Take a look below.

Here's the teaser trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven, direct from Sony's 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.

Why can't we just re-release the original and call it a day?

Just makes me want to watch the Sturges film. This has some good people in it, but doesn't come NEAR the cast of that film. Redbox it is.

Well...you can't top the original cast, that's for sure--the best of Hollywood's "tough guys" for that time and Eli Wallach playing a Mexican (which would be screamed at today!). Still...Denzel? D'Onofrio? These guys are top class, and I'll give it a chance. Because as shocking as this may seem, there are a lot of people who have never seen the Sturges film, much less the TV series from several years ago starring Michael Biehn, Ron Perlman, and Rick Worthy, and also the source for both of them, Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai.

Huh. Didn't know there was tv show. I'd like to see that.

Looks good to me. I love the Yul Bryner version but I've no problem with this. Many films nowadays are quickly labelled as something 'avatar underwater' 'titanic in space' so if you want an ensemble western and have the rights to the name of an ensemble western, why not use it? Everyone would be labelling it that anyway or maybe they'd be calling it a Western suicide squad!

One has just to forget about some things and go enjoy this one. My main complaint is too clean execution of it. I mean, everything is there; more less watchable cast. decent director, nice woman and it looks like a good recipe. For thing a million times seen ... This is some good tv/streaming time in some distant future ...

Hollywood trying to push Byung-hyun Lee...the dude has talent, but not in American cinema.

Looks enjoyable...the best $1.80 I ever spent, uh...it about $17 now in some places, uh...actually I have MoviePass so that like $30 a month, uh....., let's just say that I'm gonna see it, pardner.

Looked "ok"... nothing great. Probably would have been much better if it was just Denzel and Pratt. Cut out the rest from the movie. Oh well.
