Sony Pictures has released the very first trailer for The Magnificent Seven online. The updated western based on Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai is about a group of desperate townspeople who employ the protection from seven outlaws, stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio. The movie is directed by Antoine Fuqua and comes to theatres September 23rd.
With filming now underway, Justice League is continuing to add to their already impressive list of supporting actors with a new addition to the cast announced via THR. Willem Dafoe is the latest actor to join, and the second from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies; the first being J.K. Simmons who will be playing Commissioner Gordon. THR’s report says his part is being kept under lock and key, only to say that he is playing a “good guy” in the movie.
Though Avengers Age of Ultron was a box office smash, it didn’t quite hit the mark with fans especially, as the original Avengers did. A fact that director Joss Whedon is very aware of. At a Q&A with Mark Ruffalo at the Tribeca Film Festival, Whedon addressed the perception of Age of Ultron and his feelings on it from a report via Vulture.
