It's time to go West! Well, Western, that is. Sony and MGM are bringing back a story from cinematic history that has certainly stood the test of time: The Magnificent Seven.
As a legendary piece of Western filmmaking in its own right, The Magnificent Seven is a remake of the 1960 cowboy classic, which was in turn an American remake of the 1954 Japanese epic Seven Samurai. With Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) at the helm and an A-list cast, The Magnificent Seven might just be the Western crime movie we've been waiting for.
This updated version of The Magnificent Seven stars a bevy of familiar faces including Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.
Check out our first official glimpse at Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven:
