The much anticipated modern American remake of the Japanese cult classic known as Seven Samurai had its first tease back in April this year. Today Sony dropped the official trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s first western action flick which features a host of today’s finest actors.
Headed by Denzel Washington and joined by an all-star cast of outlaws including Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Matt Bomer, Byung-hun Lee, Vincent D’Onofrio, Cam Gigandet and Vinnie Jones, the film will follow a tale of revenge as seven expert killers help a small town reclaim their rights from a ruthless band of killers.
How they manage to get along whilst saving the lives of the town folk is another story in itself. Nonetheless fans of the spaghetti western genre will be glad to see the plentiful bouts of shootouts and explosions amongst horseback chase scenes.
No doubt it should make for great popcorn fodder come September 23 when the film lands in cinemas.
Antoine Fuqua is renowned for his gritty action films which have included Training Day, Southpaw, Olympus Has Fallen and more.
