James Horner tragically passed away last month, leaving behind an incredible legacy of scores for films like Titanic, Aliens and A Beautiful Mind. Although we previously believed the composer’s final score was for Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw, the director has revealed that Horner left behind a wonderful gift, secretly writing and composing a score for Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Each trailer for Southpaw has been better and more focused than the last, and the latest follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by using the second of two original tracks Eminem recorded for Antoine Fuqua’s film — this one is “Kings Never Die,” featuring Gwen Stefani. The trailers continue to lean a little too heavily on the family drama, while Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance in the boxing ring appears to be the main draw.

The Equalizer is sort of the ultimate action movie for dads — the big climactic scene takes place in a home improvement store, with Denzel Washington using tools in ways Tim Taylor never could have imagined in his darkest moments. And if you’re itching to see Washington kick more bad guy butt, you’ll get your chance to do so…in 2017.

‘Southpaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Brutal in the Boxing Ring

The first trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw seemingly laid out the entire plot of the film, but the second official trailer for the director’s latest drama is more compact, focusing more on the intensity of the piece. Although Fuqua’s films in recent years haven’t been exactly amazing, the promise of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw is too good to ignore.

The Magnificent Seven has built itself an interesting cast, but they just lost one valuable member: Jason Momoa has departed Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic western, presumably due to his Aquaman commitments. On the flip side, the film may have lost Momoa, but it just added Peter Sarsgaard in the role of the big bad villain.

Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven just got a whole lot more badass. In addition to Fuqua favorite Denzel Washington and everyone-favorite Chris Pratt, the film has just added former Game of Thrones star and future Aquaman Jason Momoa, as well as G.I. Joe: Retaliation star Byung-hun Lee. This film sounds like it’s going to be pretty damn tough.

More like Jacked Gyllenhaal, am I right? One of the summer releases that isn’t getting a lot of attention just yet is Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw, starring a totally ripped Jake Gyllenhaal as a distraught boxer punishing himself in the ring following a horrible tragedy — oh, the trailer doesn’t hide it, so why should we: his wife dies in an accident, leaving him to raise his daughter alone.

‘Magnificent Seven’ Remake Casts Vincent D’Onofrio as the Bad Guy

Vincent D’Onofrio playing a bad guy is about as reliable as the changing of the tides, the sun rising in the morning or…as Vincent D’Onofrio playing a bad guy. We’ll get a little taste of his penchant for fictional villainy next month when Marvel’s Daredevil series hits Netflix, but he’s already made plans for his next dubious role: the actor will play the villain in Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven (which seems to have dropped the “the” because it’s 2015 and no one has time for that) has added another actor you really like to its line-up of stars. Ethan Hawke, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Boyhood, has joined Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Haley Bennett in the remake of the western classic, which follows a team of gunfighters who team up to protect a small Mexican town from bandits.

Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Southpaw' Transformation Is Truly Astonishing

When actors transform for a role, we take notice (and most of the time, so does that little golden statue named Oscar). Christian Bale in ‘The Machinist,’ Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ Charlize Theron in ‘Monster,’ Christian Bale in the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, etc. Jake Gyllenhaal recently joined the club when he dropped 25 pounds to play the sociopathic Lou Bloom in ‘Nightcrawler,’ and now he’s at it again with his incredible transformation for his next film, Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Southpaw.’
