When isn't acting as guardian of the galaxy (and dinosaurs), he protects the Old West. Based on the first trailer for "The Magnificent Seven" remake, Pratt is bringing the same winking charm to his role as gambler Josh Farraday, opposite as the leader of the new Seven.

The original "The Magnificent Seven" came out in 1960, starring Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Horst Buchholz, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That film was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece "Seven Samurai." This new Western sticks with the concept of wrangling a bunch of "strays" to help protect a town, but with a more diverse cast (of men, anyway).

Here's the synopsis from Sony:

"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 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."
