New Japanese Trailer for 47 RONIN Starring Keanu Reeves and Hiroyuki Sanada


A new international trailer for Universal’s upcoming tentpole 47 Ronin has landed online.  The Carl Rinsch-directed film stars Keanu Reeves and centers on a troupe of banished samurai who long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Tadanobu Asano) who was responsible for the death of their master.  This Japanese trailer is considerably shorter than the domestic cut, but we do see a few bits of new footage and the focus is onHiroyuki Sanada’s character rather than Reeves’.  I’m still not entirely convinced that this isn’t just a bloated samurai riff on 300, but at the very least the film’s near-$200 million budget looks to be all on the screen.
