Shortly after seeing the film at the Toronto International Film Festival I landed an exclusive video interview with Ethan Hawke and Byung-Hun Lee. They talked about what they collect, their karaoke songs, the challenging shoot, and filming their introduction in the movie at the end of the shoot. Check out the interview above.

Here’s the official synopsis for 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.
