Watch: Keanu Reeves Leads Japanese Warriors in '47 Ronin' Trailer
Hot on the heels of yesterday's posters, the delayed Japanese epic 47 Ronin from Universal Pictures finally has a trailer showing off Keanu Reeves skills with a sword as he gets back in action for the first time in years. This looks like a pretty wild fantasy, but we're not sure it's the kind of film that will fare well at Christmastime, especially against films like Jack Ryan. There's some crazy mythical creatures and mysticism, and the film looks gorgeous, but the dialogue could use some work. Hopefully Universal was able to fix some of the problems that surfaced late last fall, and this can find a decent-sized audience. Watch it?
Here's the first theatrical trailer for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin, in high def from Apple:
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?
