Anticipation (Before Trailer): 70/100
Anticipation (After Trailer): 65/100
The star-studded cast of the remake of The Magnificent Seven definitely makes the film intriguing. Director Antoine Fuqua has done enough to add to the intrigue. The teaser trailer, however, kind of misses the mark a little bit as far as adding to the build. You barely get glimpses of anyone outside of Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. Actually, we’re overloaded with Pratt’s mugging which makes you feel like it should be called The Magnificent One, Denzel and Five Other Dudes. They have until September 23 to at least get the trailer right and we’ll probably get two more so we’ll take a wait and see attitude toward the next one.
