The Magnificent Seven is considered by many as one of the most iconic western films of all time. A loose remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, the film went on to become a cult classic. Now, it’s been given a remake, with a host of young and established stars, and directed by a well-established director in Antoine Fuqua.
The Magnificent Seven takes place in the town of Rose Creek, which is under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). Eager to fight back and reclaim their town, 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.
