Yesterday, we got to see some awesome on-set images from the highly anticipated remake of the classic western The Magnificent Seven. Today we have the teaser trailer for the Antoine Fuqua film and it is all kinds of badass.
The original Magnificent Seven was based on Akira Kurosawa’s classic Seven Samurai. From what we see in the trailer, Fuqua is staying true to the original tone but maybe with a little more swagger (I’m looking at you Chris Pratt!). The trailer plays out superbly to a cover of House of the Rising Sun. We mostly see Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt in the trailer but that is certainly nothing to complain about. We also get glimpses of Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Martin Sensmeier, Byung–Hun Lee, Matt Bomer and the only woman that seems to be in the movie, Haley Bennett.
Here is the synopsis from Sony:
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.
