A cool new poster has popped up on the interwebs for director Antoine Fuqua's upcoming Magnificent Seven remake starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. The new poster doesn't really reveal anything new, but it does showcase the main seven, with couple of the characters who is played by Vincent D'onofrio getting the shaft way back in the back ground.
This film will be a really interesting one to check out this Fall and its currently sitting nice and pretty in my top 10 most anticipated. Something very interesting to look at when this film hits theaters is exactly how powerful Chris Pratt's star power is, we all know that Denzel can open one of his good films in the low 30s to 50s. However combine that with Chris Pratt being the most bankable movie star in the world right now with mega hits Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Jurassic World. This film will be his first true test of as a certified movie star!
Check it out below and then sound off in the comment section with your thoughts.
"Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. With the 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 is set to hit theaters on September 23rd.
