Universal Studios has released the lastest trailer for the upcoming fantasy action film 47 Ronin.
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 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honour 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 (The Gift). 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.
Rinko Kikuchi, Tadanobu Asano, Kou Shibasaki, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Jin Akanishi and Rick Genest also star in this fictional adaptation of the forty-seven Ronin, a real-life group of samurai in 18th-century Japan who avenge the murder of their master
