Denzel Washington will be back on the big screens for the first time in over two years with the release of The Magnificent Seven remake. Teaming up for a third time with director Antoine Fuqua, who he’d previously worked with on Training Day and The Equalizer as they bring us a story which is inspired by The Seven Samurai tale.
The Magnificent Seven see’s Denzel round-up a diverse group of outlaws that consists of Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke,Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier as the protect a small American town from a threat of violent industrialists.
I have never been a big fan of Westerns, but with a cast that includes Denzel, Pratt, Hunt and co, plus Fuqua at the helm I’m all aboard this steam train. My Grandad would be so proud, for years he tried his hardest to get me interested in Westerns and now one finally has my attention.

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.
