'The Magnificent Seven' Unites Chris Pratt And Denzel Washington In A Modern Western


Denzel Washington Chris Pratt

'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 in 'The Magnificent Seven'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').

The Magnificent Seven Trailer


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.

Jennifer Lawrence Chris Pratt Carey Mulligan Anna Faris

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she had to get “really, really drunk” in order to marshal her nerves ahead of filming a sex scene with fellow Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt, because he’s a married man. She explained that the scene, for their upcoming movie Passengers, is the “most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”

“I got really, really drunk,” she revealed in a new feature with The Hollywood Reporter, but that didn’t end up solving the problem. “That led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don't know’.”

Faris, who has been married to the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy actor since July 2009, told Fox411 that the rumour “stung a little bit harder than I thought it would, I have always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true – because they had never been a part of my life.
