The first full-length trailer has dropped for The Magnificent Seven, Antoine Fuqua‘s star-heavy remake of the classic western, and it looks to have all the makings of a rollicking after-summer time at the movies. Leaning on the edgier side of its PG-13 rating, but still seemingly balancing that with a lighter touch, Seven could hit the sweet spot, even if it likely won’t live up to its predecessors.
Explosions, horses galloping, gunslingers slinging guns, and the occasional one-liner are all here, including Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and their ragtag group who must save a small town from menace. Also starring Haley Bennett, Martin Sensmeier, Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Matt Bomer, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Cam Gigandet, and Vinnie Jones, see the trailer below (and an international version), along with a poster.
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 gallops into theaters September 23rd.
