Watch: New Full Trailer for Keanu Reeves' Action Fantasy '47 Ronin'
"Join us, and we will have our revenge." This film still feels like it's poorly placed at Christmastime with the likes of The Wolf of Wall Street, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Grudge Match arriving the same day, but the full trailer for 47 Ronin has arrived with plenty of fantasy action. Despite some solid special effects (with the exception of that peach, cheap, Voldemort-looking villain), this still feels like a January release. Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) seems to be enjoying herself as a villain, and Keanu Reeves is doing his normal thing, but I can't help but think that Universal has a box office bomb on their hands here. Watch it?
Here's the new full-length trailer for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin, originally from Yahoo:
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. What do you think?
