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 leader of the 47 outcast samurai. 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 is helmed by visionary director Carl Erik Rinsch. Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that’s never been seen before.

Witches, Samurais And Fantasy Swordplay In The New Trailer For 47 RONIN
four new character posters for director Carl Rinsch's upcoming fantasy swordplay action adventure, 47 Ronin. The 3D feature film took a few years to make between heavy reshoots and much-needed added shots that ultimately exceeded the film's budget, so hopefully the film's delivery will be spectacular enough to woo audiences and make its money back.
The film opens in 2D and 3D this Christmas on December 25, 2013, and stars Man Of Tai Chi director and actor Keanu Reeves as an outsider who becomes the last hope of a band of samurai warriors looking to take out a monstrous evil. Reeves is joined by Asian cinema legend and action favorite Hiroyuki Sanada who will be seen clashing blades with Hugh Jackman this weekend in The Wolverine. Pacific Rim co-star and actress Rinko Kikuchi, along with the Shaolin Girl herself, actress Kô Shibasaki, and Battleship co-star Tadanobu Asano round out the cast of this explosive, whimsically colorful, grim and fantastic-looking period story of vengeance and redemption.
