Check out this incredibly badass new trailer for Keanu Reeves' martial arts fantasy action film, 47 Ronin! This is the best trailer for the movie I've seen so far. It has some awesome new footage, and it did a great job of getting me even more pumped up to see the movie!
The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the ronin (the term for samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another.
The Carl Erik Rinsch-directed movie also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Rinko Kikuchi. The movie is set to be released on December 25th, 2013. I'm excited about this one!
