‘The Magnificent Seven’: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt Want Revenge in First Trailer

The titular outlaws are out for revenge in the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s “The Magnificent Seven” remake, which arrived online on Wednesday.

Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier star as the seven men enlisted by the desperate town of Rose Creek to take down Peter Sarsgaard’s merciless killer. They soon find themselves fighting for more than just the money.

“I seek righteousness, but I’ll take revenge,” Haley Bennett’s character tells Washington’s bounty hunter Sam Chisolm after her husband is murdered.

“We’re decent people being driven from our homes, slaughtered in cold blood,” she tells Chisolm, who then assembles his band of honorable mustachioed gunslingers.

Pratt’s gambler Josh Farraday asks Chisolm if the job is difficult. “It’s impossible,” Chisolm responds.

The remake of the iconic 1960 Western toplined by Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen (based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 film “Seven Samurai”) wowed audiences at CinemaCon last week. Fuqua told exhibitors that the film attracted him because “it’s about redemption and the pursuit of justice. … That resonated with all of us.”

The reboot is “really about seven men doing what they say they are going to do,” Pratt said.

“The Magnificent Seven” hits theaters on Sept. 23.
