Keanu Reeves and Carl Rinsch have a crazy samurai fantasy movie that they have been working on that is nothing short of awesome, 47 Ronin. Crazy enemies, dragons and an infinite army are the norm for these 47 samurai to slay on their quest to save mankind. Watching this trailer made me remember the awe in the boss battles of Ninja Gaiden. Catch 47 Ronin in theaters this upcoming December 25, 2013.
Synopsis: 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 Kill the Messenger) and Eric McLeod (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Austin Powers series).
