Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and Chris Pratt head the cast of the wild western remake.

Coming September 23 to a theater or drive-in near you: The Magnificent Seven, director Antoine Fuqua’s remake of John Sturges’ classic 1960 western — which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Seven Samurai.

Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeir, and C&I cover guy Ethan Hawke star in the hard-edged action-adventure, which was filmed in and around Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The official plot synopsis: “With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns — Sam Chisolm (Washington), Josh Farraday (Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Hawke), Jack Horne (D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Lee), Vasquez (Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (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.”

Here is the trailer for The Magnificent Seven.
