1954 with the highly regarded Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. Given an American twist in 1960 by The Great Escape’s John Sturges.
Now in 2016, it is the turn of Training Day and The Equalizer helmer Antoine Fuqua to introduce The Magnificent Seven to a new generation, as the first teaser trailer for the star-studded remake rides in.
Leading the way into the troubled town of Rose Creek is Sam Chisolm played by Denzel Washington (his third collaboration with Fuqua), as he assembles an unlikely batch of outlaws (Chris Pratt/Ethan Hawke/Vincent D’Onofrio/Byung-Hun Lee/Manuel Garcia-Rulfo/Martin Sensmier) against villainous industrialist Bartholoew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard).
The Magnificent Seven debuts across the UK on September 23rd 2016.
