New International Trailer for 47 RONIN Starring Keanu Reeves

A new international trailer has been released for the upcoming action-adventure film, 47 Ronin.  The story stars Keanu Reeves and centers on a troupe of banished samurai who long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Tadanobu Asano) who was responsible for the death of their master.  It’s a classic tale, but blockbuster retelling throws in giant monsters, and they’re featured in this new trailer.  Sadly, I remain unconvinced.  They can flow and leave smoke/ribbon trails, but the design isn’t memorable and in the case of the gent above, the effects are underwhelming.  At least Rinko Kikuchi looks like she’s having a good time.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, and Jin Aksanishi47 Ronin opens in 3D on December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for 47 Ronin:

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.

    Mr. Goldberg,
    When are you guys going to post the new podcast? I did discover recently the running dialogue, and it’s good, but it’s not as fun as the Collision. great discussion though provided by Holman, Spencer, and you. and on topic of this article, I too, can’t get excited over this movie, especially since it was suppose to come out last year.

    hope it’s better than it looks!

    Looks interesting at least; there have been hardly any wide-release Asian action films recently. I highly doubt that it will do well enough to get Keanu Reeves more leading roles, though.

    Not gonna lie, this looks like it could be really really good. The same way you kinda have to accept that 300 isn’t really a strict re-telling of the actual Battle of Thermopylae, once you accept that this won’t be about THE 47 Ronin, I think this could end up being a good time. Looking forward to it.

    Looks actually quite promising!
