Four Character Posters for Carl Rinsch's '47 Ronin' with Keanu Reeves
Originally, the Japanese action epic 47 Ronin was supposed to hit theaters in February this year, but Universal delayed the film to a crowded Christmas release with Grudge Match, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Jack Ryan. Now it appears the film is sticking with the winter release date though, and the hype machine officially kicks off today with four character posters, including Keanu Reeves looking like a bad ass warrior. There have been worries about the film, including director Carl Rinsch being pulled from the editing room, but we hope these issues have been sorted out and the film turns out to be a killer action epic.
Here are the four posters for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin from IGN:
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 this year. Sound good?
