Coming on the heels of a recent wave of westerns that includes The Hateful Eight, Bone Tomahawk, Slow West, The Keeping Room and The Revenant, this year we’ve got a remake of one of the all-time genre classics to look forward to. Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) is once again reteaming with Denzel Washington for a new version of John Sturges’ The Magnificent Seven, which itself was a retelling of Seven Samurai. While I’m sure many will question the idea of a new take on this story full of modern action movie fluorishes, at the very least it features a fun cast that includes Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Haley Bennett, Byung-Hun Lee, Peter Saarsgard, Vinnie Jones, Cam Gigandet, Matt Bomer and Luke Grimes. The screenplay was also co-written by Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective), which may or may not be a selling point. The Magnificent Seven hits theatres on Sept. 23rd; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
