How Antoine Fuqua got Denzel Washington to saddle up for Magnificent Seven

8 September 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I love a good western flick and one my my favourites, if not the favourite, is John Sturges' The Magnificent Seven. It's a simple story of good guys vs bad guys but the stellar cast of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles BronsonHorst Buchholz, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Eli Wallach turned it into something very special.

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten White People Doing The Right Thing

30 August 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low.  It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings.  It cannot continue.  We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.

I have always sympathized with Black Americans.  In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.

I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement.  It’s a tough job.  I had some training in that area.  A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security.   I »

The Forgotten: Joe Dante's "The Second Civil War" (1997)

11 August 2016 2:35 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The excellent retrospective of Joe Dante's subversive, eccentric cinema in New York at Bam this month includes all the expected classics, which can hardly be termed "forgotten"—"fondly remembered" would be more like it—but also some intriguing and more obscure pieces: The Film Orgy, a five-hour found footage riot; several items programmed by Dante, such as Anthony Mann's The Black Book (a.k.a. Reign of Terror) and Arthur Penn's existential art film Mickey One; and also some of Dante's TV work, much of which is far less well-known than it ought to be...Dante's episodes of cable show Masters of Horror are uniquely dark, savage affairs with strong political agendas—Homecoming (2005) was the first bit of American filmed drama to deal openly with the war in Iraq. The "serious comedy" of this all-out, take-no-prisoners assault on the Bush administration is anticipated by the »

Trouble's brewing around the frontier in the new trailer for Antoine Fuqua's upcoming remake of classic Western The Magnificent Seven, and it'll take an accordingly heroic team to stop it. 

Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt lead the ragtag band of outlaws and gunslingers that band together to keep the Old West town of Rose Krick safe from the likes of no-good varmint Peter Sarsgaard in the film, due September 23rd. John Sturges' 1960 original was a who's who of macho movie stars, collecting the likes of Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen »

If there is a reliable truism that can coexist alongside the American film industry’s dance of death with economically insane budgets that now routinely soar north of $200 million, it is that (most) critics and potential ticket-buyers can be counted on to review bad buzz and publicized woes of dollars and production instead of the actual movie once it finally finds its way to a screen. And it may in fact be true that the drama behind the scenes often outstrips the quality of the wide-screen finished product, though certainly this is not always the case. The reception of big-budget box-office flops like John Carter, The Lone Ranger, Jupiter Ascending and Oliver Stone’s Alexander are but some late examples of our number-crunching obsession with pop culture minutiae and the fascination of a behemoth’s preordained fall. Most who trudged out to see any of these films during their theatrical »

Review: "Hard Times" (1975) Starring Charles Bronson And James Coburn; Sony DVD Release

5 May 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer 

Sony has released Walter Hill's 1975 directorial debut, Hard Times, on on DVD through their Sony Choice Collection. Hill was an up-and-coming screenwriter with Peckinpah's The Getaway to his credit as well as solid thrillers like The Drowning Pool, The Mackintosh Man and Hickey and Boggs. There is no evidence in Hard Times that Hill was a novice behind the camera, either. This is one of my favorite films of the period, though many retro movie fans probably haven't seen it. The story is set in 1933. Chaney (Charles Bronson) is a middle-aged drifter who ends up crossing paths with Speed (James Coburn), a fast-talking promoter of "street fights" (no holds barred matches between local tough guys with no rules or regulations). Needing some quick cash, the soft-spoken, low-key Chaney forms a partnership with the mercurial Speed. In his first match, they win big when Chaney knocks the »

Roland Emmerich Hatches Plans For Battle Of Midway Movie

4 May 2016 1:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Independence Day: Resurgence director and all-round maestro of cinematic destruction Roland Emmerich has teed up plans for his next movie and, spoilers, it doesn’t involve vengeful aliens.

Addressing the crowd at a special Fox screening of Independence Day, designed to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the original blockbuster, Emmerich announced plans to create a war film based on the Battle of Midway. Set during the throes of World War II and, in particular, soon after Japan’s stealth attack on Pearl Harbor, it’ll follow an American plan to coordinate a deadly attack on a Japanese fleet.

It was a gruelling maritime battle that stretched for four days, but ultimately resulted in an emphatic victory for the Allies, who were able to intercept Japanese radio transmissions to pinpoint the exact location of the doomed fleet.

First reported by Coming Soon, here’s what Emmerich had to share about the »

Roland Emmerich Planning Battle of the Midway Movie

4 May 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roland Emmerich has unveiled plans for a movie about 1942’s Battle of the Midway.

The producer-director made the announcement Tuesday night prior to a 20th anniversary screening on the Fox lot of his 1996 blockbuster “Independence Day.” Emmerich’s sequel, “Independence Day: Resurgence,” will open June 24.

The four-day battle took place six months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, and saw the U.S. Navy decisively defeat an attacking fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy. U.S. codebreakers were able to determine the time and place of the planned attack, enabling the U.S. Navy to prepare its own ambush.

“At the time, the Americans were the underdog,” Emmerich told the crowd. “It was one of those moments where, against all odds, people came together and did the impossible. A lot of pilots died in this battle. I want to make a monument to them and it would be great »

The Second Civil War

Is satire obsolete? Our appalling present political reality has surpassed some of the wildest jokes in director Joe Dante's 'exaggerated, outrageous' 1997 cable movie. An immigration squabble snowballs until a renegade state governor closes his border and threatens to secede from the Union.

First 'The Magnificent Seven' Trailer: Denzel and Pratt Lead a Few Good 'Strays'

20 April 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When Chris Pratt isn't acting as guardian of the galaxy (and dinosaurs), he protects the Old West. Based on the first trailer for "The Magnificent Seven" remake, Pratt is bringing the same winking charm to his role as gambler Josh Farraday, opposite Denzel Washington as the leader of the new Seven.

The original "The Magnificent Seven" came out in 1960, starring Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Horst Buchholz, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That film was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece "Seven Samurai." This new Western sticks with the concept of wrangling a bunch of "strays" to help protect a town, but with a more diverse cast (of men, anyway).

Here's the synopsis from Sony:

"Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' and Columbia Pictures' The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under »

First 'Magnificent Seven' Remake Photos Team Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt

19 April 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week during CinemaCon, the banner for MGM's highly-anticipated The Magnificent Seven debuted, giving us our first look at the all-star cast. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait much longer for even more images, with USA Today revealing the first official photos, along with the news that the first trailer is set to debut Wednesday, April 20. The site also spoke with director Antoine Fuqua, who shed some light on how this incredible cast came together.

The original 1960 Western classic directed by John Sturges featured an ensemble cast including Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and James Coburn, centering on a group of gunslingers hired by a Mexican village to stop a tyrannical bandit from terrorizing their town. The remake's cast is just as impressive, lead by Denzel Washington, who is collaborating with director Antoine Fuqua for the third time, following the critically-acclaimed Training Day and The Equalizer. »

Denzel and Pratt Lead The Way In Fuqua's 'Magnificent Seven' Remake (Photos)

19 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is a beautiful property. For Hollywood, it's been the gift that keeps on giving. The 1954 film was first remade as a western in 1960 as The Magnificent Seven. It did something monumental back then, as it united several of the biggest, most-beloved actors of that time in a single film. It gave each of them a cool character and a chance to shine. While it took some time to catch on, the film would eventually be considered a big hit for United Artists. That film led to sequels and, eventually, a TV adaptation.

Now director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) is hoping to strike gold in the old west again. We've known for some time that he's amassed an impressive cast, and now- thanks to USA Today- we've got our first look at this massive ensemble.
