Fresh from his massive box office smash last year (the 4th highest grossing film of all time) Jurrassic World, Chris Pratt is starring in the most anticipated Western The Magnificent Seven. Co-starring alongside an all star cast that includes Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and One of Korea’s most popular and successful film stars Lee Byung-Hun, the film is a remake of the 1960 classic (which was also a remake of the 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai)
The film is set during the ‘old west’ days of US history, the town of Rose Creek that has been overrun and controlled by Bartholemew Bogue, an industrialist. The towns citizens recruit seven outlaws, gamblers, assassins and bounty hunters as their protection. The recruited 7 form a bond, as they await for a show-down, that even the townspeople know could turn ugly. Chris Pratt stars as gambler Josh Farraday, whilst Denzel Washington who last starred in 2014’s The Equalizer, plays Sam Chisolm, a bounty hunter and leader of the seven mercenaries. Hawke, who starred in the hugely successful Boyhood in 2014, is sharpshooter Goodnight Robicheaux. Lee Byung-Hun plays assassin Billy Rocks.
Due out at the end of the summer, we bet this is one of the summer’s most popular movie. Chris Pratt is definitely this generations new action hero, and we can’t wait to see him in this role!
The Magnificent Seven is released on September 23rd in the UK
