Check out the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua‘s “The Magnificent Seven” starring Oscar winning actor—Denzel Washington. This film is a remake of the 1960 classic western that focused on seven American gunfighters hired to protect a small agricultural village in Mexico from a group of marauding native bandits. It featured an all-star cast including Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Yul Brenner, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz.
In Fuqua’s version, the story is set in the town of Rose Creek which is under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue. Desperate and scared, the townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns led by Sam Chisolm (Washington). 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” also stars Haley Bennett, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Luke Grimes, Wagner Moura, Matt Bomer, and Peter Sarsgaard.
