The Magnificent Seven ( 2016 )

 Should a remake of such a fine film been attempted or should have they left it well alone? Having just looked at the trailer one can certainly see the type of audience it is aimed at but will they pay in droves to see a western?

    Prolly not, but am planning on FINALLY seeing Hateful 8 tomorrow night, all going well!

    I will wait until the reviews come out but most likely not, unless the reviews rave about the film which is doubtful. Remakes, and particularly of westerns, usually don't work, with only an odd exception such as 3.10 to Yuma.

    Let's hope the film is better than the poster.

    Anyone seen this yet ? I am going next week and a few friends of mine have seen it and the response has been mainly on the positive side to date, which was what I had wanted to hear.

    Haven't seen it, but like you have heard good things.  I believe it is doing well at the box office.

    I saw it with my 14 year old son. He loved it, and I thought it was OK.

    There was so little of the original in it that they could have not bothered paying for the rights and just "borrowed" some of the plot.

    But if you are thinking you might like it, you probably will.

    Most of the original 1960 posters were crap, except for the Quad.

    Is the original Elmer Bernstein theme used at all in the film?

    It is there at the end for a few seconds. Maybe a tiny bit somewhere else. The best scenes from the first one (the drive to the graveyard, "clap hands", etc) were completely discarded. The town is not in Mexico, the character of each of the seven is completely different, there is no "pretend one", etc. It is almost a completely different film that should be judged on its own merits.

    Thanks for that information- I think. I was looking forward to the Elmer Bernstein music as it was played during a television trailer on Australian television for the film..

    Even if he was on his own Yul is too cool for the new lot to ever look good.

    And Denzel looks like Richard Pryor.

    What has happened to Denzel....he used to make such wonderful films...

     When the original 1960 The Magnificent Seven is discussed and the cast is talked about Brad Dexter usually is the cast member who's name is least remembered.

    I attended a session today at a local cinema for The Magnificent Seven. I was not expecting too much but nevertheless curious to see it. If one can refrain from comparing this version to the original classic film this movie is very entertaining and apart from a slow path earlier on in the film has action galore. Recommended to go and see and if you do, just forget about the clichés and the original version and just sit back and enjoy the movie.

     I have just watched the original The Magnificent Seven ( 1960 ) again and it reaffirms what a great entertaining movie it was and still is in 2016. I have also seen, many years ago, the original Japanese film Seven Samurai ( 1954 ), which is a classic. Probably time to revisit it.

    If you love Seven Samurai and you haven't seen them I thoroughly recommend Sanjuro and Yojimbo starring the great Toshiro Mifune as well. Even if you have seen them  another viewing wouldn't go astray.

    I found out something cool about Seven Samurai 6 years ago, when I was consigned the only first release U.S. movie paper I have ever had!

    They were three stills (from the first U.S. release in 1956), and for that release, the movie was titled "The Magnificent Seven"!

    Here is some information about this I found on the Net:

    "5. The film was originally released under a now-familiar title: “The Magnificent Seven.”
    Seven Samurai” is an endlessly influential film, seeing the start of many familiar action tropes. Where would James Bond be without the opening adventure unconnected to the main narrative, pioneered here with the sequence where Kambei poses as a monk to thwart a kidnapper. And its influence was more direct, as even the most casual of cinephiles knows that Kurosawa’s classic was remade, surprisingly faithfully, albeit set in the Old West, as John Sturges‘ all-star western “The Magnificent Seven.” But what’s less well-known is that when RKO released the film in the U.S. (two and a half years after Japan, in November 1956), it was under the title “The Magnificent Seven.” When MGM remade the film, all prints of it under that name were destroyed."

    However, the article is wrong on two detail. The stills are clearly marked Columbia, not RKO, and the very first release was in Los Angeles in July 1956.

    Over the past six years I have waited and hoped I would get consigned any posters from this first U.S. release.

    Last year Heritage got the one-sheet, and even though it is one color and they got the year wrong, it sold for $4302.

    Below are the one-sheet and the three stills, the only U.S. paper I have seen

    A couple of things in relationship to the U.S. distributor and the U.S. release date.

    The Magnificent Seven in question was released in the U.S.A. through Kingsley-International Films. Kingsley-International Pictures was an American film distributor, located in New York and active between 1952 and 1962.The company specialised in importing foreign art house films. The company was dissolved in 1962 when the founder Edward Kingsley died. In 1956 the company became the art house subsidiary of Columbia Pictures. On the above four images, apart from'' A Columbia Pictures Presentation'' appearing on the three lobby cards all four images show ''A Kingsley International Release appearing on them. As 1956 was the year Kingsley International became a subsidiary of Columbia Pictures this is perhaps why the ''Columbia Pictures presentation'' appeared on the lobby cards. 

    I am not disputing in any way the information that the film had it's very first release in Los Angeles in July 1956. All I wish to do here is state the film was reviewed by the trade paper The Film Daily in December 1956 and Columbia was listed as the distributor. I notice also that was also apparently reviewed by Time in December 1956 also. Interestingly both being reviewed six months later which seems odd.
