Admittedly, we haven’t really paid that much attention to Keanu Reeve’s 47 Ronin. Now that I’ve seen the first trailer, that is probably going to change. While some might argue that the movie’s plot has an almost Matrix like plot. I would argue that THE MOVIE HAS AN ALMOST MATRIX-LIKE PLOT!

True, in this movie humanity isn’t enslaved by robots in a virtual world. But, there’s freakin ronins and dragons all over the place! I’ll take dragons over those electric squid things any day.

Joining Reeves in the film areHiroyuki Sanada, Kô Shibasaki, and Rinko Kikuchi.

47 Ronin opens on December 25th.

Official 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.
