Finally, these are the first images of The Magnificent Seven, the last film with music by James Horner. Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw) the film features Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt.
James Horner composed the music shortly before his death purely from reading the script (see our article: Antoine Fuqua: "James Horner wrote the music for Magnificent Seven")
No trace of the music James Horner wrote can be heard in this video, however we have confirmation of the use of his music by his name in the credits alongside Simon Franglen, his collaborator, who recorded the soundtrack last month in Los Angeles (see our article: Simon Franglen The Magnificent Seven is scoring at fox scoring stage).
The synopsis is as follows:
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). 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 film is scheduled for September 23, 2016 in the United States.


  1. I’m really looking forward to this movie. So sad that it’ll be the last great score of James’s. I know it’ll be a movie not to miss. Can’t wait.

  2. I am really looking forward to seeing the movie, considering its one of the last great scores we will ever hear from James Horner. That’s not the only reason I’m looking forward to it though. I want to see how well Chris Pratt can handle a western movie.

  3. Like Zoe, am very interested in this film, yet very sad at the same time. I still cannot believe this will be the last new score we will hear from James. It is almost one year to the day he was at The Royal Albert Hall, and I thank you all again for keeping the JHFM so up-to-date for us. James and his beautiful music will not be forgotten. Pamela
