THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN Trailer Delivers Exactly As Expected

So, when word broke that Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt were set to star in a remake of The Magnificent Seven directed by Antoine Fuqua quite a lot of people undoubdetly had a picture in their minds of exactly what that film would look like. And now the first trailer has arrived to prove them exactly right.

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.

This looks to be slick, mainstream, popcorn entertainment that stands pretty much as the polar opposite of The Hateful Eight on the Western spectrum. Which, given how Tarantino's latest under performed, is likely exactly what MGM wanted. check out the trailer below.

Hey whatever happened to that Seven Samurai remake? (This looks lovely, BTW - very excited to see!)

Oh my. I'm in. Looks like wonderful fun. Also, it's a western so that pretty much guarantees at least one viewing by me.

..IF interested; three recommendations, sighted on the horizon. .....
Ain't Them Bodies Saints (GORGEOUS.)
Renegade/ ..smtimes called BlueBerry (Freakin' WEIRD. ...but STELLAR.)
The Good The Bad The Weird (milk out the nose, hysterically calibrated...)

Why are you sighing at me?

Your memory fails you terribly so. I've told you, more than once, that I own and adore Renegade and The Good, The Bad and The Weird.

Holy fuck! Ain't Them Bodies Saints is much watch caliber. Jesus. What a cast. Thanks for the heads up.

..this is for my on again off again memory.

hence, why i sigh.
....anywho. - Thanks for the levelheaded response.

I love Chris Pratt as much as the next guy but Chris Pratt is no Toshiro Mifune.

Very few of us are Toshiro Mifune bricriu, so few in fact to be none. ; )
