The Magnificent Seven movie quotes provide the dialogue for the 2016 remake of the 1960 western following a group of seven who fight to help residents of a small town. The action film was directed by Antoine Fuqua using a screenplay Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk adapted from Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni. After appearing at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, The Magnificent Seven opened in theaters, including in IMAX, on September 23, 2016.

In The Magnificent Seven, the evil industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) takes over the small town of Rose Krick, including killing Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer). Cullen's widow, Emma (Haley Bennett), seeking righteousness, asks bounty hunter Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) for help.

Sam agrees to help Emma and those in Rose Krick and begins to gather a team to help him. Sam enlists gambler Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), sharpshooter Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), tracker Jack Horne (Vincent D'Onofrio), assassin Billy  Rocks (Byung-hun Lee), Mexican outlaw Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) and Comanche warrior Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier) for the job. But up against Bogue's massive army, and with big stakes on the line for those in the town, the battle becomes quite the war.

These The Magnificent Seven movie quotes peek into the lines from the film that make it one of the most anticipated of September 2016 as it opened alongside the likes of Snowden, Blair Witch, Bridget Jones's Baby, and The Wild Life.

    Josh Farraday: Ben, you dead? Pity, I had just ordered a drink from that man.
    Sam Chisolm: I took a job. I'm going after Bartholomew Bogue. I'm looking for some men to join me. 
    Josh Farraday: Is it difficult?
    Sam Chisolm: Impossible
    Josh Farraday: How many you got so far?
    Sam Chisolm: You and me

    In this The Magnificent Seven movie quote, Sam begins to gather the crew he needs to take down Bartholomew Bogue, starting with Josh. He knows he needs several men to join him if he's going to be successful so he might as well begin somewhere.

    Why Are You Here?

    Video: YouTube

    Emma Cullen: Why are you here, fighting someone else's fight?
    Sam Chisolm: You people deserve your lives back.
    Goodnight Robicheaux: Just make sure you're fighting the battle in front of us, not the battle behind.

    Emma, Sam and Goodnight discuss why Sam agreed to take the job, as this isn't something a bounty hunter would typically do. Sam agrees with her plight and want to help those in the town regain control of what is theirs.
