Ever since Sony Pictures and MGM announced director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Southpaw) would be remaking The Magnificent Seven I’ve been excited to see it. The tremendous cast includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, Martin Sensmeier, Matt Bomer, Haley Bennett, and Peter Sarsgaard. Scripted by True Detective writer/showrunner Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer), the film revolves around seven outlaws who band together to protect a small town from a violent industrialist.
So if you’re like me and looking forward to The Magnificent Seven, I’ve got some great news. On September 21st at 7pm in the Los Angeles area we’re going to partner with our great friends at Sony and IMAX for a free screening! In addition, after the screening ends we’ll have a Q&A with producer Todd Black.

Here’s the official synopsis for 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.
