In 1879, robber baron and gold-mining tycoon Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) assumes control of the American frontier town of Rose Creek, and subjects its residents to forced labor in his mines. After a town church assembly denounces him, Bogue has the church torched and kills a group of rebellious locals led by Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer). Matthew's widow, Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), and her friend Teddy Q (Luke Grimes). ride in search of bounty hunters to help liberate the town. They recruit Sam Chisholm, an African-American U.S. Marshal, who expresses interest only after hearing of Bogue's involvement.
With the help of Emma and Teddy, Chisholm recruits gambler Joshua Faraday (Chris Pratt), Mexican outlaw Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), former Confederate marksman Goodnight "Goody" Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Robicheaux's Korean traveling partner Billy Rocks (Byung-hun Lee), and legendary game hunter Jack Horne (Vincent D'Onofrio). The group encounters a Comanche warrior named Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier), whom Chisolm (Denzel Washington) persuades to join the posse.
The Seven enter Rose Creek and eliminate thirty-four Blackstone private military contractors on Bogue's payroll. Chisholm sends the corrupt sheriff, Mr. Harp, away to inform Bogue that they now control his holdings in Rose Creek. Chisholm surmises that Bogue will return with an army in seven days. The Seven liberate forced laborers from a Bogue Mining digsite, and spend the next week, with Emma and the townspeople's help, fortifying the town and training in combat. Meanwhile, Bogue receives the news of Rose Creek's liberation, murders Harp for his failure, and orders his Comanche enforcer Denali (Jonathan Joss) and his right-hand man McCann (Cam Gigandet) to assemble an army. Robicheaux, haunted by his experiences in the Civil War and fearing his own death if he kills again, leaves the town the night before Bogue's arrival; Emma volunteers to take his place.
