*Denzel Washington and his outlaw crew are out for revenge in the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s remake of “The Magnificent Seven.”
Premiering online Wednesday, the promo features Washington with co-stars Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier as the seven men enlisted by the desperate town of Rose Creek to take down a merciless killer played by Peter Sarsgaard.
“I seek righteousness, but I’ll take revenge,” Haley Bennett’s character tells Washington’s bounty hunter Sam Chisolm after her husband is murdered.
According to Variety, Fuqua’s remake of the classic 1960 Western starring Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen (based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 film “Seven Samurai”) wowed audiences at CinemaCon last week. Fuqua told exhibitors that the film attracted him because “it’s about redemption and the pursuit of justice. … That resonated with all of us.”
“The Magnificent Seven” hits theaters on Sept. 23.
