Let’s just get this out of the way right now: We like Keanu Reeves. Sure, his acting may not always be, well, terrific, but he still manages to make it work and has been a big part of some of our favorite films of all time.
Next up for the actor is the fantasy/action film 47 Ronin, which from this new trailer, we can safely say looks pretty great. Here’s the synopsis:
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.
Check out the trailer after the break. Look for 47 Ronin this Christmas.
