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?

This looks amazing, like a live action manga. Maybe because it's not connected to a toy brand or comic book, (there is a comic book now), it won't do so well, but visually it looks like a great fantasy adventure. Why would people not want to watch it?

sucker punch vs the matrix

Not sure it looks like either of them too much, maybe more Sucker Punch, which was terrible. Hopefully it'll be better than that.

Last time when i was expecting something this awsome i got sucker punched, hopefully this time I don't have to be so disopointed. Looks good and must watch.

Its reminding me of the trailer for Seventh Son which also looks like an amazing visual fantasy movie but both will probably bomb. Still I'll probably see both at the cinema just to appreciate the visuals on as big a screen as possible. Just like Sucker Punch which was helped by a big screen, just a shame the sound was still on!

So strange. Has a real SUCKER PUNCH feel to it.

That observation is spot on, I agree.
