The first trailer for “47 Ronin”, the Keanu Reeves-starring Samurai movie (that seems to be a little time coming), has been released.
Reeves’ second martial-arts related film in twelve months (the other being his directorial debut “The Man from Tai-Chi”), the film tells of a Samurai and his team who, in addition to seeking all kinds of payback on those that wronged them, are committed to the cause of restoring honor and peace across the land.
After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.
As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
“47 Ronin” is out in December.
