The official synopsis for The Magnificent Seven is as follows:
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), 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.
The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua which sees a Training Day reunion as he directs fellow leads Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke once again in this film. It definitely looks set to be more action packed than expected judging by the first trailer for this take on the tried and tested premise which at times can be fun which this looks like it’s set out to achieve.
The Magnificent Seven is scheduled for cinematic release on the 23rd September 2016.
