'47 Ronin' Trailer: Samurai Keanu Reeves Slashes Way Through Enemies (Video)
The fantasy epic is set for release on Christmas Day, 2013.
Keanu Reeves is a sword-wielding Samurai fending off epic foes in the 47 Ronin trailer.
The Matrix star plays a warrior enlisted by 47 samurai to seek revenge "upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind." The screenplay for the Universal Pictures title was penned by Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 6) and Hossein Amini (Drive).
As THR previously noted, this is the first English-language version of a story that has hit screens more than 80 times in Japan. Character posters for the action title, which is being promoted with the line "Seize Eternity," were released this week.
The film, directed by Carl Rinsch, has shifted release dates multiple times. It is now scheduled to arrive in theaters on Christmas Day, 2013.
