We’re catching 47 Ronin fever. Just yesterday, we premiered the 47 Ronin character posters starring Keanu Reeves. Merely 24 hours later, Movie Fanatic has the first trailer for the epic-looking film starring Reeves as a reluctant warrior seeking revenge.
Reeves returns to the action genre (after most famously appearing in The Matrix and Speed) in a story of a vicious warlord who kills a Samurai master and banishes 47 warriors from their village. They will regroup, led by Reeves, and reclaim what was rightfully theirs.
Kai (Reeves) is a half-breed who his other Samurai had tolerated, but had no respect for. Yet, during their mission to make things right, they will learn that he may in fact, be the leader they need.
Directed by Carl Rinsch (The Gift), 47 Ronin also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Rinko Kikuchi and Tabanobu Asano. Look for it this Christmas!
