This may be a cinematic blasphemy, but I prefer some of the more modern Westerns to the older ones. A friend of mine said that it was because I was more of an Action Movie man than a Western Man.
Regardless, my tastes in Westerns tend towards the Young Guns and Tombstone variety.
And this trailer for the Magnificent Seven seems right up that alley.
Denzel is one of the most charismatic actors of all time and last year's Equalizer proved that he still has a great physical presence. Pratt is also someone who is really coming into his own and might be able to push some perceptions here.
Usually I am not excited about remakes (especially since this is a remake of a remake), but I think this could be really good.
