The Magnificent Seven
Training Day and The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua re-imagines the classic 1960 Western with a whole host of Hollywood stars all saddling up to tackle injustice.
The American frontier town of Rose Krick is under siege from ruthless villain Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Saarsgard), and in their desperation the residents turn to a misfit group of gun-slingers to save the day. These include bounty hunter Sam Chisholm (Denzel Washington), explosives expert Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), sharpshooter Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke) and tracker Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio).
Today’s crop of A-listers don the spurs and step into the iconic boot prints left by movie legends Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn in this gritty, action-packed reworking of a landmark movie classic. Reuniting Training Day stars Washington and Hawke with Guardians of the Galaxy’s Pratt and Daredevil’s D’Onofrio, this promises to unleash seven barrels of mayhem.
"The sheer brilliance of these latter scenes justify this new version of an old favourite and shows us just why Westerns are still worth making." ★★★ The Independent
