In case you didn't know, The Magnificent Seven make their triumphant return to the big screen tomorrow.To help promote the new film, there have been numerous sightings of seven mysterious riders around London this week. First spotted at the dead of night in the Wild West End, the cowboys have since been sighted crossing busy roads, leaving their horses at Boris Bike stations and chilling in London parks. The posse's search culminated at the Cineworld Leicester Square, where they formed an orderly queue for the new film version of The Magnificent Seven which is released tomorrow, starring Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Chris Pratt. That's an impressive group of actors but given the original film included Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen, the new cast have some fairly big boots to fill!
The new film is directed by Antoine Fuqua who 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, led by Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Faraday (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 opens nationwide on Friday the 23rd of September.
