The 7 Most Magnificent Westerns Of The Last 25 Years

The Magnificent Seven remake is coming out at a very different time than the original did in 1960. Back when Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen led the Seven, the Western was even more oversaturated back then than the superhero genre is now. But over 55 years later, Westerns are much more scarce, and big recent bombs like The Lone Ranger and Jonah Hex have made the genre a box office and creative gamble.

Yet Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and the new Seven will try to make that gamble pay off, like these seven Westerns have done over the last 25 years.
