Are you familiar with Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic 3D fantasy-adventure 47 RONIN starring Keanu Reeves? The project has had more than a few setbacks, but has maintained interest among genre fans. It seems like promotional material has trickled out slowly, though now we have a new (perhaps final) poster, and a trailer to show folks exactly what to expect. Yahoo posted the trailer for the film, directed by Carl Rinsch, and co-starring Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi. The trailer has shades of several other movies in it, including THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE LORD OF THE RINGS and CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON… and I gotta say, it looks pretty cool. Tell us what you think in the comments.

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.

Helmed by director Carl Rinsch (The Gift), 47 Ronin is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted, Identity Thief), Pamela Abdy (Identity Thief, upcoming Endless Love) and Eric McLeod (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Austin Powers series).

47 RONIN opens December 25, 2013
