Yes, there was a reason Denzel Washington showed up to the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight last May with a newly minted gunslinger mustache.
Wednesday, the trailer for Washington’s latest film “The Magnificent Seven” dropped online.
The “Uncle Denzel” meme was not in vain folks.
The film is a remake of the 1960 American western directed by John Sturges. (Sturges’ film was a remake as well – a different take on Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai.”)
As expected, Washington is the clear headliner among the cast. The 61-year-old actor is joined by co-stars Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke. The film is set in the ‘Old West,’ where Washington’s character and six other men protect a town under threat from thugs and thieves.
Basically, shoot ’em up and ask questions later.
