(CNN)Westerns are one of Hollywood's most beloved genres -- but not one of its most diverse. That isn't the case with this weekend's "The Magnificent Seven." The film has a wide variety of actors from different races and backgrounds including Asian actor Byung-hun Lee, who's from South Korea; Mexican actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo; and its star, Denzel Washington, who plays bounty hunter Sam Chisolm. Washington told CNN at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month that the film's diverse cast speaks to the reality of the setting in the west of the 1800's.

(CNN)The title and outline might be the same, but "The Magnificent Seven" has been put on steroids -- blown up and lobotomized for an audience weaned on the "Fast & Furious" movies, not westerns. Granted, the title has demonstrated itself to be durable. The 1960 classic (itself adapted from "The Seven Samurai") spawned three sequels, a TV series and even inspired an outer-space knockoff, "Battle Beyond the Stars." Still, this new version -- directed by Antoine Fuqua, who reunites with his "Training Day" stars Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke -- has made one choice after another that strips the movie [...]

A Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday shows Trump trailing by just 2 points in Colorado, a state where Clinton had opened up a wide lead and where Democrats had halted advertising. Clinton is ahead 44% to 42%, within the poll's margin of error.
