Sony Pictures and MGM have just released two brand new trailers for director Antoine Fuqua's highly anticipated western remake of The Magnificent Seven starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Ethan Hawke. The film revolves around seven deadly outlaws who must band together to protect a small town from a violent industrialist. The film is in my top 10 most anticipated of the Fall and with an all-star cast like this, the film should be great. My only trepidation is director Antoine Fuqua who can sometimes be hit or miss for me. So far though everything looks good, can't wait!
The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, and Peter Sarsgaard. Check out the cool new trailer below and then sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the upcoming film, and as always thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys.
Here’s the official synopsis for 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.
