47 RONIN Trailer Arrives; Keanu Reeves Says, "Come On!"

Peter Martin, Managing Editor

Wither 47 Ronin? Word of mouth spread that the production was troubled, but the movie is heading to a Christmas release with a full head of steam, as demonstrated in the colorful, CGI-infused, action-packed first trailer, featuring Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano, and Rinko Kikuchi.

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.

Carl Rinsch directed. We've got the trailer and four character posters below.
