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.Both the original Magnificent Seven and The Seven Samurai (which it was based off of) are flawless movies in my opinion, so where's the internet nerdrage that someone has dared to remake it - with a different plot - and starring that guy from Parks & Recreation and Guardians Of The Galaxy?
Personally, I love the vibe of this film, from both the trailers we've seen so far. I think this iteration of The Magnificent Seven looks thrilling and plays great thanks to the chemistry among the protagonists
I'll certainly be adding it to my Blu-Ray library, even though it's highly unlikely that I'll venture out to cinema for it.
I love everything I've seen that Chris Pratt's done to date (he was, after all, the best part of the CGI-fest that was Jurassic World) and, to a greater or lesser degree, I've enjoyed every spin-off from the Magnificent Seven franchise (from the multiple sequels to the TV series, all of which featured quite different takes on the set-up) as well as sundry re-imaginings across a variety of media.
Sure, the poster for this Magnificent Seven is a bit too Hateful Eight, but I'm certain the closer we get to its September release date, the more the promotions' team will latch onto this film's unique identity.
