The brand new 47 Ronin trailer just hit online, with Keanu Reeves as a half-blood exiled samurai, who returns to help save his people from great evil. I have to be honest, this is NOTHING like what I expected when I heard about this movie last year. It is full of monsters, dragons and mystical beings, all while trying to set itself up like a Kurosawa samurai tale. It is definitely something different.
Check out the 47 Ronin trailer below and let us know what you think.
Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to action-adventure in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.
As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
Helmed by director Carl Rinsch (The Gift), 47 Ronin is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted, Identity Thief), Pamela Abdy (Identity Thief, upcoming Endless Love) and Eric McLeod (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Austin Powers series). www.47roninmovie.com
