First Trailer: “The Magnificent Seven”

Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic western “The Magnificent Seven” hits cinemas on September 23rd and Sony Pictures have today unveiled the first trailer for the film.

Though seemingly an ensemble piece in concept, the trailer plays up Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt as the leads – other members like Vincent D’Onofrio, Ethan Hawke and Byung-hun Lee are all given short shrift.

Also a point of contention is the music, a solid cover of “House of the Rising Sun” but inexplicably dubstepped – something we might get in the film itself which is said to boast a “hip hop inflected western score”.
