47 Ronin is one of those movies where delays in its release have caused some to wonder if there have been problems with commercials director Carl Rinsch debut movie. However it’s now set for a prime Christmas release, suggesting Universal has some faith in it.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to 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.’
Now the first full trailer and a quartet of character posters for the movie have arrived, so take a look at those above and below.
