The first trailer for Universal’s fantasy-adventure film 47 Ronin was released today.
47 Ronin is a new version of a Japanese legend and stars Keanu Reeves as Kai, a slave who is enlisted by 47 Samurai to help them avenge the death of their master. Naturally, plenty of sword-wielding and fight scenes ensue. The screenplay was written by Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 6) and Hossein Amini (Drive) and the film is directed by Carl Rinsch. Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki and Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) also star.
47 Ronin was originally set to be released last Thanksgiving but will now be released on Christmas Day 2013. Check out the trailer above.
