Magnificent Seven about fighting against Trump: Ethan Hawke

Los Angeles,  "The Magnificent Seven" is a movie about fighting against Donald Trump, according to Ethan Hawke.

While accepting his Donostia Award for lifetime achievement at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, the 45-year-old actor said that the titular characters in his latest film would apparently join forces to defeat Trump, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I bet Donald Trump would like the film. But he doesn't know that what the film is actually about is people gathering together to defeat him," Hawke said when asked about the message of Antoine Fuqua's western classic remake and if he thought the US Republican presidential candidate would like it.

"I like to say that Peter Sarsgaard plays Donald Trump in this film."

Sarsgaard portrays a corrupt industrialist named Bartholomew Bogue in the remake of 1960's western movie which starred Steve McQueen and Yul Brynner.

Meanwhile, Trump, who will take on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November's US presidential election, is known for his controversial comments, especially those aimed at Mexicans and Muslims.
