Seven Magnificent Cowboys Descend On West End to celebrate the release of Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven
Seven mysterious riders traded the Wild West for the West End today as they surprised onlookers in London’s Leicester Square.
Commuters and tourists were shocked to see the impressive posse of seven authentically dressed cowboys arrive in the historic West End, apparently queuing for a screening of the new film THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, which is released this Friday, starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.
Appearing at dawn, backlit by the bright lights of the city, the cowboys galloped through Leicester Square with heroic style, before descending on the cinema for a special screening. The seven sharpshooters were later seen strutting across a zebra crossing in formation, before tying their horses to a nearby Boris bike stand.
The horseback cowboys were part of a publicity stunt for the new film The Magnificent Seven, released in cinemas this Friday.
Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople, led by Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Faraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee)showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN IS RELEASED IN CINEMAS ON SEPTEMBER 23
