Yahoo! Movies delivered the brand new poster and trailer for the upcoming period fantasy action adventure, 47 Ronin from director Carl Rinsch. The film comes off of a production slated that lasted a few years with Universal Pictures studio executives taking over the production toward the latter half of the process and will finally make its way to a North American Christmas Eve release, in addition to a worldwide distribution slate which you can view by clicking here.
Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to an action-adventure in 47 Ronin. 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.
Helmed by director Carl Rinsch (THE GIFT), 47 Ronin is produced Scott Stuber (TED, IDENTITY THIEF), Pamela Abdy (IDENTITY THIEF, UPCOMING ENDLESS LOVE) and Eric Mcleod (MR. & MRS. SMITH, AUSTIN POWERS SERIES).
