It’s been fifty-six years since a band of gunslingers, ne’er do wells and grifters came to together to save a small Mexican villages from the predations of a notorious bandit and his gang.

In the new teaser trailer for The Magnificent Seven, Washingto, Pratt and company kick major @$$. It looks like the will be a good time. The Magnificent Seven opens on September 23rd. Follow the jump for the action.
