As far as remakes and reboots go, the 2014 adaptation of hit TV series, The Equalizer, seems to signal that director Antoine Fuqua knows how to gel with certain properties on par for big screen prospects. Thus, his latest comes by way of another remake classic, The Magnificent Seven, previously iterated by John Sturges with respect to late film auteur Kurosawa Akira.

Landing our main roster of heroes and villians in the old West, Fuqua reunites with actors Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke among an ensemble cast that sees the heroes take on an evil industrialist. The most recent trailer from July certainly lends an appealing view for Fuqua's treatment while we may very well get a second trailer with the film currently due in just over three weeks. In the meantime, the marketing campaign continues as per the current rollout of character vignettes, and Fandango's exclusive presentation of the new IMAX poster which you can view below ahead of the film's TIFF premiere on September 8, and wide theatrical release on September 23.
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 the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns - Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D'Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
