Yes, yes, the remaking of a classic like The Magnificent Seven* is a disgrace, etc. etc. Watch this.
That’s the U.K. version. Here’s the U.S. teaser:
Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. 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.
*The “original” Magnificent Seven IS a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai.
Kristy Puchko is also for all things that mean more Byung-hun Lee in her life.
