New International Promo For 47 Ronin
And there's a fresh poster for Keanu's latest

Bucking the trend that says trailers following one another get longer, the new Japanese promo for 47 Ronin is actually shorter than the US version that arrived last month. Take a look… 

Drawn from a true Japanese story, but with a lot of fantastical elements bolted on and Keanu Reeves chucked into the middle of the tale, 47 Ronin finds a group of warriors in disarray.

After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, the leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honour 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 witches and wondrous terrors.

As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires the band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.

Time will tell whether this one will emerge from talk of production problems, budget crunches, re-editing and creative disagreements to find success like World War Z. Ads director-turned-film man Carl Rinsch will certainly hope so, but we’ll find out for sure when the film lands on December 26.
