The first trailer for “The Magnificent Seven” remake debuted recently and it holds a wealth of promise for fans.
Headlining the cast of “The Magnificent Seven” remake are Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. The film offers shoot-outs and does justice to the 1960s classic, Mail Online reported.
Sam Chisolm goes about recruiting six hired guns to help him exact revenge on Bartholomew Bogue (played by Peter Sarsgaard). Bogue is a threat to the town of Rose Creek and its people have asked his help to bring him down, the publication noted.
The outlaws recruited for the job are Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Lee Byung-Hun), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).
USA Today described Washington’s look in the movie. He “packs a killer look and a Colt .45 Peacemaker.” Director Antoine Fuqua revealed how Washington prepared for his bounty hunter role. “We’d have meetings and he’d be spinning and twirling his gun while we were talking. He used to walk around his house spinning guns, go to restaurants. Obviously, people knew it was for his character,” Fuqua explained.
Slashfilm described Pratt’s character as the charming gambler. Meanwhile, Hawke plays a former army sharpshooter who’s stricken with PTSD. The publication recalled the iconic 1960s movie also featured major celebrities like Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, and James Coburn.
Chris Pratt joined Fuqua at CinemaCon 2016 recently for the Sony presentation. Pratt spoke with exhibitors about the movie. The Wrap cited excerpts from the event. “I’ve seen the movie and it’s f–king awesome,” Pratt described it.
Pratt admitted that he didn’t understand western movies early on as a child. After working on “The Magnificent
Seven” he now understands its appeal.
“I’ve always wanted to do a Western, I didn’t like them then and now I get it, like country music.” However, he gave advice to others who plan to film in spring. “Never shoot a Western in Louisiana in the spring,” Pratt noted on how the weather made it difficult to shoot scenes.
“The Magnificent Seven” rides into theatres on September 23, 2016.
