‘The Magnificent Seven’ is ready for Chuseok
The upcoming action blockbuster aims to attract Koreans by releasing the movie on Sept. 14, during the Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) holidays.
The story involves a group of outlaws who fight to defend a desperate town from a ruthless businessman. Lee will be joined by co-stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio and Peter Sarsgaard.
The Hollywood film will compete against various local films such as “The Age of Shadows” and “The Map Against the World,” which will also be released around the same time. “The Map Against the World” (working title) is about the creation of a 19th-century map of the Korean Peninsula by Korean geographer and cartographer Kim Jeong-ho.
