The Magnificent Seven promises to see a small town – in this case Rose Creek, built around a gold mine – threatened by a ruthless baron and his gang of thugs. When they kill several people in their attempt to take the place over, a young widow (Haley Bennett) hires a bounty hunter (Denzel Washington) to dispatch the bad guys, supplying him with the necessary funds to hire six gunmen to help him in his mission. Which is where Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Vincent D'Onofrio (Escape Plan) and others come into play. Included in the line-up are Lee Byung-Hun (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Martin Sensmeier (Lilin's Brood) and Manuel Garcia-Rulfi (Cake), who are going up against the villainy of Peter Sarsgaard (Jathead).
John Lee Hancock (The Bland Side) and Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) are among those who have contributed to the screenplay, adapted from the classic Seven Samurai (1954), which became the first crack at a Magnificent Seven in 1960. The Magnificent Seven is out in cinemas.
