My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

I haven’t seen The Magnificent Seven yet, but in light of the depressed Box Office of many films over the summer, I was curious how it was doing:

Principal photography on the film lasted 64 days, from March 18 to August 18, 2015, in the north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Other locations include St. Francisville; Zachary, Louisiana; and New Mexico.

Release
The film had its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2016, and served as the closing-night film at the Venice Film Festival on September 9. The film was initially set to be released on January 13, 2017;  however, Sony Pictures Entertainment moved the release date to September 23, 2016.

As of October 2, 2016, The Magnificent Seven has grossed $61.6 million in North America and $46.5 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $108.1 million, against a production budget of $90 million. The film had a global 2D IMAX opening of $4.3 million from 606 theaters.
Internationally, the film is projected to make around $100 million.


Good. This Western has made some decent loot so far.  I hope this will inject interest in Film Makers to make more Westerns – and for more Big Name Stars to get involved.

Here’s hoping …
