Fantastic Fan Art & Posters for Keanu Reeves' Samurai Film '47 Ronin'
We are 47. Holy crap these posters are amazing. There's almost too many of them! I was originally going to put in the headline "See Art for That Samurai Movie You Probably Won't See", but my hopes are that enough buzz is built up through this kind of work that it doesn't matter in the end. Our friends at the blog blurppy have commissioned an incredible series of over 20+ posters, prints and art for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin (see the trailer), starring Keanu Reeves as a samurai who avenges the death of his master. I'm personally very excited for this movie, despite being delayed for an entire year, and all this art makes me even more excited.
Here are some of our favorite posters. Click any below to see the full 47 Ronin galleries (for even more art). There's so much great work. "Who doesn't love demons, dragons, samurai and of course...Rinko Kikuchi!?"

Thanks again to blurppy for commissioning and debuting all of this art. Full galleries: Phase 1 + Phase 2. Neither the studio nor the filmmakers are involved, this was done independently by blurppy's Poster Posse.
A band of samurai set out to avenge their master's death and dishonor at the hands of a ruthless shogun. 47 Ronin is directed by Carl Rinsch (The Gift) and written by Chris Morgan (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6) and Hossein Amini (Snow White & the Huntsman). The Story follows a group of 18th century warriors who aim to avenge their master's death. Keanu Reeves leads the film in his first big action role since concluding The Matrix trilogy, and he's surrounded by a Japanese cast including Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi. Universal releases the film December 25th. See the official trailer.
