Antoine Fuqua Talks About The Modernized Classical Story Of "The Magnificent Seven"
Fuqua also explained how the Westerns have changed over time already and how he felt the need to adjust to those changes in order to make his modern-themed classical story of "The Magnificent Seven." He based the movie on what the Westerns are and look like now in order to create a more realistic image of the storyline.
Actor Denzel Washington on the other hand is not familiar of the 1960 classic, saying that he has never watched the original version of the film, making it more difficult for him to portray his role. Nevertheless, he and the rest of the cast were able to represent the roles in the best way that they could.
The film is set to premiere worldwide on September 23. Watch the full trailer below:
