This is the re-make to keep an eye out for this year.
'The Magnificent Seven' returns in, thankfully, not another sequel but a remake starring Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington. It's a semi-modern twist on a frequently revisited and retold tale that mixes Western wonder with gargantuan gun-power, and it's set to be released in theaters this Fall.
Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt star in 'The Magnificent Seven'
It's a re-boot of John Sturges' Oscar nominated 1960 classic, this time directed by Antoine Fuqua who has previously worked alongside Washington on 'Training Day' and 'The Equalizer'. And with a modern spin comes new characters, because replacing the likes of Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen is impossible, as we saw with the last two sequels of the 'original' movie (we say 'original', but the original is actually 1954 Japanese film 'Seven Samurai').
After the murder of her husband, a widow and resident of the town of Rose Creek finds herself seeking revenge over the brutal methods of Bartholomew Bogue, the man responsible for the death of her partner. Bartholomew is a ruthless industrialist and has his sights set on the town of Rose Creek and will go to any lengths to take it from the residents.
The widow makes contact with a bounty hunter named Sam Chisolm who agrees to help her look for gun fighters to help protect the town. Though the money is little, Chisolm begins his search for skilled gun slingers who might be able to help lead the resistance against Bogue. Amongst the recruits are Josh Farraday, Goodnight Robicheaux, Jack Horne, Billy Rocks, Vasquez and Red Harvest. What begins as purely a monetary commitment for the men soon turns into something far more personal when they experience first-hand the lengths Bogue is willing to go to.
The Magnificent Seven is a remake of the 1960 movie which originally starred Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach and Steve McQueen. The new version of the movie follows a similar plot which has been adapted and written by True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk. The score was composed by James Horner shortly before his death in 2015.
The two mega-stars made a special appearance at CinemaCon to give a snake peak of their upcoming movie.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt will team together on the big screen for the first time this December, in sci-fi romance Passengers. The film centers on just two characters, who find themselves stuck on a spaceship during a 120-year journey. But while some had been sceptical, early footage seems to show the duo have what it takes to carry the film alone.
Jennifer Lawrence joined Chris Pratt at CinemaCon on Tuesday (April 12th).
At CinemaCon on Tuesday evening both Lawrence and Pratt where on hand to show the first footage from the film. Speaking about his character, Pratt said: “Jim is a mechanic and he’s the type of guy who fixes things.”
Clumsy Chris Pratt dropped a microphone on Jennifer Lawrence's foot at a film event on Tuesday (12Apr16).
The actors appeared on stage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada to promote their new science-fiction film Passengers.
However, things did not go to plan. When addressing a crowd of movie fans, Chris dropped his microphone on Jennifer's foot, causing her to cry out in pain.
"Ow! you dropped it on my foot," Jennifer exclaimed as the device landed on her, before Chris joked that the incident was in stark contrast to the infamous moment when Kanye West grabbed Taylor Swift's microphone at the 2009 Grammy Awards, saying, "That was the anti-Kanye, I dropped the mic on your foot."

Oscar nominee Sylvester Stallone has reportedly landed a role in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.
The 69-year-old Creed star was photographed leaving the Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday (04Mar16) with a script in his hand, and later joined Chris Pratt and the rest of the cast on set, according to the New York Daily News.
Details about Sylvester's role have yet to be revealed, but a cliffhanger from the first instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy surrounded the identity of Chris' onscreen father. The actor portrays leading man Peter Quill, and Kurt Russell was said to have been cast as his dad.
However, since Sylvester's possible involvement was revealed, rumours have swirled suggesting the Rocky veteran will in fact play Peter's father.

Actor Kurt Russell has officially signed on to play Chris Pratt's father in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.
Reports suggesting the Furious 7 star was in talks to take on the role circulated in December (15), but Russell admitted he was not familiar with the blockbuster and was unsure if he would sign on.
"I literally got a phone call two days ago about this, I've never seen Guardians of the Galaxy so I don't know anything about it," he said.
"Many times I've heard, 'That's a really fun movie, a really good movie (with) great characters.' I don't know it! So, I didn't realise that (James Gunn) had written and directed it, but we talked to each other on the phone. And I just had to be honest and say, 'Thank you for considering me, I have to read (the script), and I have to watch the (first) movie.

But who will Russell play in the comic book sequel?
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that Kurt Russell will be joining the cast for the upcoming sequel. Writing on Facebook, Gunn also confirmed that official photography on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had started, but he was careful not to give anything away about Russell’s role.
Kurt Russell has been cast in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2.
“My favourite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I'm glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined,” Gunn wrote.

Chris Pratt Always Knew He Would Be A Successful Actor, Because He Never Had A Plan B.
The 36-year-old actor first made a name for himself on television show Parks and Recreation, before achieving leading man status thanks to films such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.
Chris took to his Instagram page in the early hours of Wednesday morning (27Jan16) to tease fans that the upcoming Guardians sequel is going to be incredible, while also revealing how proud he is of upcoming movie Passengers, in which he stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence.
Alongside a picture of what appeared to be his commute, Chris wrote: "It's 3:20am. I got picked up for work at 6:45am yesterday. I'm not good with math, especially after being up for approximately 61 hours but I think I've been up for over 77 hours. I did a table read for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this morning and then shot all day on Passengers and just now wrapped some 144 hours later. Weirdly both films, which I'll be shooting back to back, are being shot in Atlanta at Pinewood studios. We have the best crew. Total rock stars busting their asses. And the stuff we're shooting. My God. I can't wait for you to see it. I go back in in about 8 hours to do more."

Actor Chris Pratt Has Been Vacuum Packing Deer Meat After Deciding To Only Eat Meat Killed By Himself Or Friends For The Next Year, Dubbing His New Eating Habits "The Game Plan".
The American star has gone through a dramatic transformation over the years, shedding the portly figure he sported on TV show Parks and Recreation in favour of a beefier physique. Now the 36-year-old has taken his diet a step further with a detailed post on Instagram showing him in his kitchen surrounded by raw animal meat and plastic bags.
"Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen," he captioned the shot. "I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n (sic)."
He explained that the wild instinct in him will probably never change, though he's not quite ready to survive on a diet of only vegetables just yet. However eating meat he hunted himself is a good compromise, so he's stocked up his freezer with meat from a deer hunt in Texas.
