The Magnificent Seven Trailer

The official trailer…well teaser…has dropped for Antoine Fuqua‘s star-studded western, The Magnificent Seven.

Fuqua’s remake of the 1960 tale of gunslingers banding together to save a Mexican village from marauding bandits offers a diverse cast of leading men with Denzel Washington, Vincent D’Onofrio, Martin Sensmeier, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt and Byung-hun Lee.

Here’s the official description of the film:

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 Magnificent Seven is slated to open in theaters on September 23.
