The first teaser for Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven has landed online, Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke lead this impressive cast. Check out the trailer:
Fuqua is a director with some hits and misses. Training Day and The Equalizer were pretty great but then he'll come out with something like Olympus Has Fallen, so he's not a director I highly anticipate due to his portfolio being rather mixed, but I'm pretty impressed with this first teaser for The Magnificent Seven.
Hollywood has been trying to resurrect the Western for years now with Django Unchained and True Grit being the only ones that have made an impact. I have a feeling like Fuqua's remake of this classic may impress us.
The cast is fantastic and diverse for a start. Chris Pratt looks like the highlight so far, he seems to be having a great time in his role but of course we have frequent Antoine Fuqua collaborator Denzel Washington leading the seven.
The movie looks fun, exciting and well produced, it's definitely one that has now flown onto my radar for the rest of the year. But what do you think? Let me know your thoughts on the trailer in the comments or on Twitter @JamesPorter97
