Following the first fantasy fueled trailer for Universal's 47 Ronin, coming this Christmas, a new, quick international trailer has surfaced that is full of action. Even better is the presence of Keanu Reeves, who hasn't returned to the genre since The Matrix trilogy ended. And while the cast is comprised of mostly Japanese actor mostly unknown here in the United States, sci-fi and comic book fans should recognize Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor: The Dark World). We're not sure if the time of release is wise, but we'll give this action fantasy a shot. Watch!
Here's the new international trailer for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin found on YouTube:
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?
