Yet another classic gets a Hollywood remake and the new trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven promises something a little different to the 1960's film (which was a remake of Akira Kurrosawa's 1954 Seven Samurai.

The film is about - you've guessed it - seven magnificent cowboys tasked with defending an oppressed Mexican village from a group of marauding bandits.

The new reboot stars Denzel Washington as Sam Chisolm, the leader of the Magnificent Seven and superstar Chris Pratt, who recently starred in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, as Josh Farraday, a gambler with a fondness for explosives.

Director Antoine Fuqua previously worked with Denzel Washington on the 2014 film The Equalizer and 2001 film Training Day.

The Magnificent Seven is set to be released in Ireland on September 23.
