The Magnificent Seven: How Ethan Hawke Convinced The Director To Hire Him

23 September 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This weekend not only marks the release of the hotly-anticipated remake of the 1960 classic, The Magnificent Seven (which itself was a remake of the Akira Kurosawa film, Seven Samurai), but it marks the first trifecta collaboration between director Antoine Fuqua and actors Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke since the early 2000s film, Training Day.

But this reunion was no coincidence. While both Hawke and Washington had worked together with Fuqua separately since Training Day — the former in 2009’s Brooklyn’s Finest and the latter in 2014’s The Equalizer, it had been a long time since the three of them had been together. When Hawke was asked to host the premiere screening of The Equalizer, it was the first time they’d been in the same place since then, and it was there that Hawke heard a key piece of information.

“That’s when I heard they were doing [The Magnificent Seven],” Hawke told »

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Director Antoine Fuqua On How His Western Remake Reflects The World Today

23 September 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Magnificent Seven” rides again, thanks to Antoine Fuqua’s newest feature, a star-studded take on the classic Western from John Sturges (which was, in turn, a star-studded take on the Japanese epic “Seven Samurai” from master filmmaker Akira Kurosawa) that subtly modernizes its story for a new audience (and a new time). Starring Fuqua regulars Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Haley Bennett, alongside an impressive cast that includes Chris Pratt, Peter Sarsgaard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Manuel Garcia-RulfoMartin Sensmeier and Byung-hun Lee, the film delivers a timely, diverse and feminist-leaning story with some major genre roots.

And that’s exactly what its filmmaker was going for when he took on the daunting task of remaking a beloved film that ranks among some of the best of its genre and American film in general: Finding a way to make it modern, make it timely and make it resonant while still »

Equalizer 2 Shoots Fall 2017, Denzel Washington Will Return

22 September 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We haven't heard anything about The Equalizer 2 since last June, when Sony Pictures set a September 29, 2017 release date for this action sequel, which will also be the first ever sequel in Denzel Washington's legendary career. Today we have confirmation that The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua will also be back to direct, but the release date will most certainly have to be changed. According to producer Todd Black, filming isn't expected to begin until September 2017.

Todd Black, who also produced this weekend's Denzel Washington/Antoine Fuqua remake The Magnificent Seven, spoke with Collider, revealing that the script for The Equalizer 2 has been completed by The Equalizer writer Richard Wenk. When asked if Antoine Fuqua would be back, the producer joked, "Yeah! He better!" before confirming shooting details, revealing that the producer will be working with Denzel Washington on another project before The Equalizer 2. Here's what he had to say below, »

Weekend Box Office Preview: Western ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Duels Animated ‘Storks’

22 September 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Western remake “The Magnificent Seven” (Sony) faces off against animated “Storks” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. But ranking is less important than how much the two movies pull in audiences. This fight pits the latest iteration of the venerable Hollywood western against a new example of the dominant genre ruling the 2016 box office.

Last weekend’s three duds and a big drop in Top Ten box office can be explained by retread projects that lacked appeal. However after a quick start to the season where six out of seven initial wide releases disappointed (Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” will end up grossing more than the other six combined), this week sees only two new wide releases.

That’s actually a sign of strength, since both look appealing enough to boost numbers. It’s an interesting combo, with both films having potential but neither guaranteed to open as well as “Sully” ($35 million), although both cost more. »

Movie Review – The Magnificent Seven (2016)

21 September 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Magnificent Seven, 2016.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Haley Bennett, Byung-Hun Lee, Vincent D’Onofrio, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard.

Synopsis:

Seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves.

Since breaking out way back in 2001 with the Training Day Antoine Fuqua’s career has been questionably inconsistent. Last years Southpaw had the grace of a bird attempting to fly whilst attached to a brick, and The Equalizer existed in a nightmare-ish purgatory like state, as if Fuqua himself cared only to hang out with Denzel for a couple of months. In face Olympus Has Fallen, Fuqua’s brainless-Die-Hard-in-the-White-House may be his best work in that time.

So the idea of a perfunctory remake of The Magnificent Seven of which for surely nobody asked, bodes rather poorly. Yet, to Fuqua’s credit, it’s okay, »

'The Magnificent Seven' Review: A Classic, Newly Diversified Western Rides Again

21 September 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If the sight of Denzel Washington, guns blazing and saddled up for his first western, doesn't get your pulse racing, read elsewhere. Ignore the hot air blowing in from the Toronto Film Festival, where The Magnificent Seven premiered, that suggests Antoine Fuqua's remake starring Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and an ethnically diverse cast, isn't up to snuff. Really? The haters also threw bricks when Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson played gunslingers in John Sturges' 1960 version, claiming it couldn't lick the boots of Akira Kurosawa's »

The Preview Reel: Are These Seven Magnificent?

21 September 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to another “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. The fall movie season is in full swing, and as Sully continues to dominate the box office, it looks like we might have our first blockbuster of the fall season in The Magnificent Seven. Warner Bros. looks to cash in on the lack of family options in theaters with their latest animated offering, Storks. Both look interesting for different reasons, let’s break them down.

  The Magnificent Seven

What we are excited about:

If you’re not excited for this cast, we’re not sure what cast list will ever get you excited. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more headline this remake of the classic western. The trailers all seem to indicate that the chemistry is going to be loose and fun, which seems to be »

The Weekend Warrior 9/23/16: The Magnificent Seven, Storks

21 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:

 Yikes. What a terrible weekend we just had, not only for the new movies released but also for the Weekend Warrior’s predictions. Clint Eastwood and Tom HanksSully won its second weekend in a row with just under $22 million, but as far as the new movies, neither Lionsgate’s Blair Witch nor Universal’s Bridget Jones’s Baby did very well, putting the last nail in the coffin (hopefully) for sequels/remakes trying to play upon nostalgia that just isn’t there. (Good luck to the Rings movie opening next month!) Blair Witch ended up with $9.6 million to take second place and both Bridget Jones’s Baby and Oliver Stone’s Snowden ended up with around $8 million, so »

Antoine Fuqua on That 'Scarface' Remake: "I Think It's More Relevant Than Ever Right Now"

20 September 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Director Antoine Fuqua returns to theaters this weekend with a reimagining of The Magnificent Seven, a film that's ferociously engaging in its shoot-'em-up spectacle while also being surprisingly funny throughout. A veteran in the crime genre (see: Training Day, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen), Fuqua has turned his attention of late toward remakes or reimaginings, beginning with 2014's The Equalizer on through 2016's The Magnificent Seven and, if everything comes together, a new remake of Scarface, which, like Magnificent Seven, would be the third iteration of the Scarface story following versions in 1932 and 1983.  For Fandango, I had a chance to talk with Fuqua in advance of The Magnificent Seven arriving in theaters (stay tuned for more of that...

‘The Magnificent Seven,’ ‘Storks’ Swoop in to Save the Box Office

20 September 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Magnificent Seven” and “Storks” are here to save the day. Last weekend, audiences rejected a flurry of sequels to tired franchises such as “Blair Witch” and “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” but help has arrived in the form of Denzel Washington and a band of lovable, baby-delivering birds.

The Magnificent Seven” should debut to roughly $35 million, easily topping the domestic box office, while “Storks” is on pace to launch to $32 million, according to pre-release tracking. Both films should best last weekend’s winner, “Sully,” with the drama, about the “Miracle on the Hudson” plane landing, slipping to third place with roughly $13 million.

The Magnificent Seven” reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, the director of “The Equalizer” and “Training Day,” two of the actor’s bigger hits. This one adds “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt to the mix, and should have enough firepower to keep the pair’s hot streak alive. The »

The Magnificent Seven review

20 September 2016 1:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jake Wilson Published Date  Thursday, September 22, 2016 - 05:13

No number is more enshrined in film history than seven. It's the number of dwarves Snow White grooms, the number of sins that haunt Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, and it's James Bond's calling card. The number of Gods of Luck and Good Fortune in Japan, seven was set in cinematic stone by Akira Kurosawa and his band of samurai. A remake of a trans-Pacific remake later and that number flashes up again, greeted by the scowl of a double-Oscar-winner and his multicultural clan of rag-tag misfits. 

Built to purpose, the stars in The Magnificent Seven shine brighter than Rihanna's favourite diamond. The impeccable Denzel Washington, the charm radiator Chris Pratt and the aggressively hipster Ethan Hawke may have their names emblazoned highest on the posters, but this is not just about star power.

Exclusive Video Interview: Peter Sarsgaard Talks The Magnificent Seven

15 September 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having given us the gritty crime thriller Training Day back in 2001, and the enjoyable reboot of The Equalizer only two years ago, it’s safe to say that Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington make a very successful actor/director team. So successful, in fact, that the duo is back for another outing this fall with Sony’s The Magnificent Seven, a remake of the classic western of the same name.

For those unfamiliar with the original, the plot of Fuqua’s new film revolves around Rose Creek, an Old West town which is taken over by a greedy industrialist named Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). With no one else to turn to for help, the residents hire bounty hunter Sam Chisolm (Washington) to save their town. Unable to take on Bogue alone though, Sam recruits several other men to help him with the task at hand, resulting in the titular group »

Denzel Washington's Response to the "Uncle Denzel" Meme Will Make You Rethink Your Entire Life

14 September 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Denzel Washington is full of wisdom. The two-time Oscar winner became the subject of a viral Internet meme after the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight more than a year ago, and somehow the meme, dubbed "Uncle Denzel," is still gaining traction. But when Global Grind's BlogXilla asked Denzel how he feels about the image that refuses to go away, The Magnificent Seven star responded in a way that only Denzel can (and you'll absolutely rethink every life choice you've ever made). "If I had my wallet, I'd show it to you," the Training Day star answered when asked about it.  "They didn't know what I was doing. They don't need to know. Those who can, do, those who can't »

Giddyup! Venice Gallops to a Close with Magnificent Seven's Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt - and Some Horses

The Venice Film Festival is riding off into the sunset tonight with a good ol'-fashioned rodeo. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and other Magnificent Seven cast members were joined by a couple of real-live horses on the red carpet Saturday night.

The film, which premiered Thursday at the Toronto International Film Festival, will be the last movie screened at Venice. Pratt, Washington and costar Ethan Hawke were on hand for the Tiff premiere, which kicked off without any livestock. »
