Was Antoine Fuqua born to make a Western?
For a guy who’s made his bones off of gritty (and violent) urban dramas like Training Day and The Equalizer, the first full trailer for the remake of The Magnificent Seven (following this spring’s short teaser) displays a real flair for balancing fun with action and drama, in the spirit of the best old school Westerns – but without feeling antiquated or cheesy.
The all-star cast sure helps, led by Fuqua favorite Denzel Washington, still-hot new movie star Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. With a script co-written by True Detective scribe Nic Pizzolatto, this movie shows a lot of promise.
The Magnificent Seven opens this fall nationwide on September 23, 2016.
