Sony Pictures Entertainment has been releasing a series of character vignette videos over the past month or so for their remake of The Magnificent Seven.
The videos offer a brief look at each of the these seven magnificent characters, including The Outlaw named Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo); The Warrior, Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier); The Assassin, Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee); The Hunter, Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio); The Sharpshooter, Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke); The Gambler, Faraday (Chris Pratt); and The Bounty Hunter, Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington).
Sony Pictures has just released the second trailer for Antoine Fuqua‘s The Magnificent Seven. The film is a reimagining of the 1960’s film of the same name, which also happened to be an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese-language film Seven Samurai. Fuqua’s film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier as our seven protagonists, each with their own special set of skills, who are hired by the residents of a small town in need of help ousting the nefarious industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard).
It’s been quite a while since we first heard rumors about actors like Tom Cruise and Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Costner starring in a remake of the 1960 western classic The Magnificent Seven for MGM. None of those rumors played out, but the remake still moved forward, and, as promised when we saw the first official images yesterday, a trailer for the movie has been released today.
Though it is technically a teaser trailer, our first look at the movie still runs over two minutes in length and shows plenty of footage. Click on over to the other side to check it out.
Last week, CinemaCon attendees were treated to the first look at the Antoine Fuqua-directed remake of The Magnificent Seven. The original film was released back in 1960, and starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, and James Coburn. Such legendary actors gathering together for a great film, its reimagining would at least have to match that all-star caliber. And as such, it was announced that Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Byung-hun Lee would be starring in the film. With names like that, it looks like they got the job done on paper at least.
Now Sony has released the first official set of images of the cast in their western getups, and plans on releasing the first trailer tomorrow. Check out the images below.
Another actor has entered into negotiations to join the cast of The Magnificent Seven, MGM’s upcoming remake of the 1960 western of the same name that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen among many others.
Jason Momoa, who is best known for his roles in Stargate: Atlantis, Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian remake, and as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones (until he makes his debut as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice anyway), is the latest actor to become attached to the movie. Momoa would play one of the film’s villains if everything works out, though no details on who exactly that might be is not yet known. All that is known is that it’s not the primary antagonist, a role that has not been cast at the moment.
