TORONTO, Ont. (December 1, 2016) – Director Antoine Fuqua, alongside an all-star ensemble cast, delivers a modern take on the classic Western genre in THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, debuting on 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack; Blu-ray and DVD December 20 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Canada and MGM Studios. The “perfectly assembled” (Brian Tallerico, ROGER EBERT) cast includes two-time Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington as Sam Chisolm, Chris Pratt as Josh Farraday, two-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke as Goodnight Robicheaux, Vincent D’Onofrio as Jack Horne, Byung-Hun Lee as Billy Rocks , Martin Sensmeier as Red Harvest, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Vasquez and Peter Sarsgaard as Bartholomew Bogue.

Exclusive to THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN Blu-ray is the interactive “Vengeance Mode,” where Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and the other members of the cast sat down together with director Antoine Fuqua to breakdown key scenes, share their best memories from the set and reflect on the extraordinary experience of making a classic western.  “Vengeance Mode” combines behind-the-scenes footage with the group’s lively conversation to give viewers an all-access look at the process of bringing The Magnificent Seven to the screen. Also available exclusively on the Blu-ray are deleted scenes and two featurettes. “Gunslingers” shows the extensive firearms training the cast went through with the trainer to prepare for the film, while “The Taking of Rose Creek” is a breakdown of the first big shootout.

Four additional featurettes included on THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN Blu-ray are also available on the DVD. “Magnificent Music” highlights the moving story of composer James Horner’s final score before his untimely death; Antoine Fuqua is profiled in “Directing the Seven;” “Rogue Bogue” profiles the chilling villain played masterfully by Peter Sarsgaard; and “The Seven” features stylized character profiles with behind-the-scenes footage, cast and director interviews.


In Director Antoine Fuqua’s modern vision to a classic story, the desperate townspeople of Rose Creek employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns after the town falls under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money. 

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, released theatrically by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures, in association with LStar Capital and Village Roadshow Pictures, was directed by Antoine Fuqua from a screenplay by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk.
