We are in a era of fresh new takes on classic films, but are you ready for a fresh take on a remake? Watch the spanking new second UK trailer…
Very rarely do we get a original film (Aikra Kurosawa‘s Seven Samurai) and the (1960 John Sturgess American) remake The Magnificent Seven both regarded are classics. Antoine Fuqua will be hoping to make it a triple whammy and when you look at the blockbusters than have been, gone this year this looks potentially one of the better films. Impressive cast with Denzil Washington looking reliable as ever, Chris Pratt looks solid too. This might not be The Guardians Of The Galaxy but the original film and the story of misfits, desperadoes have inspired Starlord in many ways. This may not be made by director with the pulling power Tarantino however the modern twists, great cast and the advantage of Autumn release date,which will give the film a good box office. It may not win over most of the original film fans but might just give something different to a new audience.
Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. With the sleepy town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate towns people 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 for a 23rd September release in UK, Ireland and USA.
