As long as they don't ruin the theme music I don't mind.

Why remake good movies? No need - this one's a classic.
Remake a movie that was a good idea badly executed first time round

Jesus  >:(
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

The trailer is wretched, truly horrible. But it looks like there might be a half-decent film hiding behind it.

For fuck's sake… I love the original Magnificent Seven, but that film is entirely unaffected by this new movie.

No, this doesn't look much like the Magnificent Seven I know, but I'm a sucker for a western, and I don't think you can chuck this much star talent at a movie and come out with something unwatchable.*

Cheers

Jim

Oh... well that as a bit... oh dear.Still we'll see.

Also is having thr boost from the director of The Equalizer really a draw?

The Equalizer apparently performed really well, but you could equally ask of M7 what an anachronistic cover of House of the Rising Sun has to do with anything, or why people should get excited for one of the oldest, most well-known tropes in the book being revisited but made dumber and louder, and with a trailer where people do something and then that sound effect goes WHUMMMMMM.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those "they shouldn't remake anything ever" types, I'm just saying that this looks like it's aiming really low.

Apart from the minor irritation that, if this one's rubbish, you'll be checking the TV listings in a few years time and think 'oh, cool, The Magnificent Seven's on' and then you'll realise it's the rubbish new version.
I hate it when that happens.

If you only knew how many times I have excitedly switched channels for a dose of what is best in life, only to find Conan O'Brien's skeletal grin staring back at me...

Why? Why? why? why? why?
The original is one of my all time fave films! Even loved the numerous sequels. Seeing the trailer of this just makes me ask Why? again.
