The Magnificent Seven Trailer: Misfits Unite!

The first official trailer for The Magnificent Seven is here. The film is a remake of the 1960’s western classic of the same name headed by Steve McQueen and directed by John Sturges. 

We got the first teaser for the film back in May which introduced the premise of the film. The new trailer focuses on the title seven characters as we see each of them introduced with their badass descriptions. You have the Bounty Hunter, , the Gambler, the Outlaw, the Sharpshooter, the Assassin, the Warrior, and the Tracker all teaming up to take down a greedy industrialist who is taking away the land from the locals.

The men are lead by the characters played by Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. The two shine throughout the trailer and especially Pratt, who is certainly anchoring the humour of the film. The film will be marketed around Pratt a lot post his success with hits like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.
