'Magnificent Seven' Trailer: Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington Introduce the Reboot's Misfits

"I've always wanted to blow something up."

The official trailer for The Magnificent Seven has been released, and it introduces the entire gang.

For example, Denzel Washington is the bounty hunter, Chris Pratt is the gambler, and Ethan Hawke is the sharpshooter — and the latter is focused on the task at hand. He tells Washington, "Just make sure we're fighting the battle in front of us, not the battle behind."

Co-financed with Village Roadshow, the MGM and Sony remake puts a modern spin on the 1960 film, which centers on a disparate group of seven gunslingers who are hired by a woman to defend her town from bandits led by a robber baron.

Vincent D'Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier also star in the update — and, as the trailer shows, each have their own preference in weaponry.

Antoine Fuqua directs the film, featuring a screenplay by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk.

The Magnificent Seven hits theaters Sept. 23.
