Set to hit theaters on September 23rd, this remake of the 1960 western movie reunites director Antoine Faqua (“Training Day”, “The Equalizer”) with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. It also stars Chris Pratt from this mega-blockbuster.
Similar to the 1960 John Sturges’ film (which was based on the earlier “The Seven Samurai” movie), the 2016 version of “The Magnificent Seven” involves the protection of a small town that’s threatened by a ruthless businessman. Desperate, the town takes extreme measures…hiring banditos to protect them. Although Washington, Hawke and Pratt aren’t Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson from the roll-out 56 years ago, this film looks impressive. And anyone who’s followed Chris Pratt on Instagram (prattprattpratt) knows that he had a blast making this film.
Roll the tape…
Gunslingers. Mercenaries. Colt .45 Peacemakers. Yeah, count me in on this action western.
