'47 Ronin' Trailer: Keanu Reeves Goes Full-On Samurai

Recommended Posts

In the years since it began production, we've heard quite a bit about "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/415857/moviemain.jhtml"]47 Ronin[/url]," the samurai fantasy epic starring Keanu Reeves, but not a lot of it has been good. The film, which was originally set for a November 2012 release, was delayed due to reshoots, and then rumors of editing room drama began to circulate sometime afterward.

But as "World War Z" showed the world earlier this summer, no amount of production trouble can damn a movie entirely, and now that a trailer for "47 Ronin" has hit [url="http://uk.movies.yahoo.com/video/47-ronin-full-length-trailer-160815049.html"]Yahoo! Movies UK[/url], viewers can judge for themselves whether they'd like to join Keanu on another martial arts adventure or not.

Check out an interview with Reeves about "47 Ronin" and learn more about the film after the jump!

When MTV News Josh Horowitz [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/04/05/keanu-reeves-47-ronin-plot-details/"]spoke with Reeves in 2011[/url], when the actor was filming "47 Ronin," and he described it as "a story of revenge and impossible love."

[url="""][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:639101?width=512&height=288[/img][/url]In the film, Reeves stars as Kai, a half-breed samurai, who is enslaved and kept from his true love. When his master dies, Kai is freed in order to lead his fellow ronin in revenge. "The samurai become outcast and decide to enact revenge on the person who is responsible for the death of their lord," Reeves said.

"47 Ronin" will open in theaters on December 25. It also stars Rinko Kikuchi ("Pacific Rim"), Hiroyuki Sanada ("Lost," "The Wolverine"), and something called a Zombie Boy.

[i]What did you think of the first trailer for "47 Ronin"? Do you think the wait was worth it or will bad buzz make this DOA? Let us know in the comments below and on [url="http://www.twitter.com/mtvmoviesblog"]Twitter[/url]![/i]

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
