The first trailer for hotly anticipated remake The Magnificent Seven was released today and it looks, well…..magnificent. The 1960 original is, of course, perhaps the most beloved western of all time, spawning careers, a theme tune that will now be on loop in your head and three sequels of decreasing quality and star power.
Re-teaming director Antoine Fuqua with Denzel Washington after Training Day (2001) and The Equalizer (2014), The Magnificent Seven is the story of the putting together of a seven gunman team to avenge and protect a poor village from savage outlaws.
Alongside Washington, it also stars the currently ubiquitous Chris Pratt as well as other Fuqua favourite, Ethan Hawke. The Magnificent Seven is slated for a September 23 release.
