Universal’s 3D samurai tentpole 47 Ronin has had a bit of a troubled road through production and post-production, but if all goes according to plan, we’ll be seeing Keanu Reeeves wielding his sword in theaters this coming December. In anticipation of the pic, some promo posters have gone online that feature the cast doing their best samurai poses. Reeves stars as one of the 18th century samurai who seek to avenge their master’s death, lending some starpower to the movie. I don’t imagine we’ll see a trailer until closer to this summer, but these promo posters offer a nice tease of what’s to come.
Hit the jump to check out the promo posters. Directed by Carl Rinsch, the film also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Kô Shibasaki, and Rinko Kikuchi. 47 Ronin opens in 3D this Christmas. [Update: The images have been removed at the studio’s request. Sorry if you missed them!]
