47 Ronin. This time round, it is from Japan, where the movie is based upon.
I have good feeling about this movie. No, it's not because Keanue Reeves is in it. It is because I quite like the story of Ninja blending with mythical creatures (like there is a scene in the trailer whereby Rinko Kikuchi [Mizuki] morph into a fierce dragon).
Now, with the two new stunning movie posters and a spectacular trailer from Japan, I think I will pay the premium to watch it in 3D coming December.
47 Ronin will be released internationally on the Christmas Day. Following is the short synopsis of the movie (source; GekkTyrant.com):
The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the ronin (the term for samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another.
Now, keep reading to see the posters/trailer.
