After a turbulent production (which is rumoured to have seen first time director Carl Rinsch removed from the film), the Keanu Reeves-headlined samurai epic 47 Ronin is gearing up for a release this Holiday season, and Universal Pictures has now dropped a new UK trailer for the film; here’s the official synopsis, followed by the trailer below….
From ancient Japan’s most enduring tale, the epic 3D fantasy-adventure 47 Ronin is born. Keanu Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada; The Wolverine), the leader of the 47 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.
47 Ronin opens in North America on Christmas Day and in the UK on Boxing Day.
