You saw the premature debut of Denzel’s mustache last year at the Mayweather fight. After watching the trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven I can say it fits the film. For someone like me that doesn’t like Westerns at all except for Blazing Saddles, I will be checking this out. Action, a diverse cast, and “House of the Rising Sun” playing in the trailer has my interest.
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.
