Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.20.16] action thriller western

I feel like I've been reading about this remake of The Magnificent Seven for year now, so it's weird to finally see a trailer for it. The action packed "remake" of the 1960 John Sturges western - itself a American re-telling of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai" - tells the tale of a small group of gunslingers who are hired to protect a town from marauders.

Denzel Washington leads the Anton Fuqua directed flick, which also reunites with Ethan Hawke. rounding out the ensemble cast is superstar Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier and Haley Bennett.

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 opens September 23rd.

Recommended Release: Seven Samurai (Criterion Blu-ray)
