Universal Pictures has released a new trailer, posters, and images for the action flick, 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.  This new trailer does a better job of laying out the story as well as showing off more of the finished special effects, but it still doesn’t do anything for me.  The protagonist’s revenge seems miniscule compared to the special effects extravaganza surrounding him.  I want to hold out hope for this movie, but this new trailer isn’t giving me much to go on.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and images.   The film also stars Rinko Kikuchi, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, and Jin Akanishi47 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.

    Keanu Reeves greatly surprised me with the cool and visually stunning Man of Tai Chi, and this looks…cool and visually stunning, so I will definitely give it a try. Plus, some of Japan’s greatest actors – Hiroyuki Sanada and Rinko Kikuchi will be starring.

    Should be a win.

    chambara anime style type of movie. If you don’t know what that then you will not understand it and probably hate it

    Having been at the test screening some time back, I’m very disappointed as to how they’re now making Kai, the white half-breed savior insert, out to be the inspiring hero instead of Sanada Hiroyuki’s original character as the leader of the 47 Ronin. I have nothing against Mr. Reeves; he’s a truly great guy, but Sanada’s character really is the soul of this well-loved Japanese legend. I hope the movie itself isn’t as white-washed as the way it’s being marketed.
