Four Very Cool Posters for Keanu Reeves’ 47 Ronin

Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin (2014) Movie Poster

So what’s become of Keanu Reeves’ Samurai flick “47 Ronin”? It’s been delayed a tad, and there were troublesome news of reshoots and rumors that the studio were not happy with director Carl Rinsch’s finale, so the whole thing had to be re-conceived. Basically, what happened with Brad Pitt’s “World War Z”, and that movie turned out pretty good, and is on its way to becoming a hit and possibly launching a franchise. I’m sure Universal is hoping for the same outcome with their very, very expensive period/action movie.

Until we find out later this year, check out four new posters for “47 Ronin”. I’m not sure who the chick hanging upside down is, but that’s, uh, a unique portrait right there. What, all the guys get to stand up, but the girl has to hang upside down? What up with that, guys?

“47 Ronin” is set in the 18th century, and centers around a band of samurai who set out to avenge the death of their master. Besides Reeves, it co-stars “Pacific Rim’s” Rinko Kikuchi, “The Wolverine’s” Hiroyuki Sanada, “Mortal Kombat’s” Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Japanese superstar Tadanobu Asano, Yorick van Wageningen, and Kô Shibasaki.

Yeah, not a bad cast right there, folks.

The swords fly this December 25th.

    Zombie Boy is an actor now?

    Okay that’s damned cool!

  • Kal-El-1983

    Ah..so this is going to be stylized rather than tell the story of the 47 Ronin straight up

      When does Hollywood tell a straight up sotry? I mean really, who wants to hear that story anyway. History is for history books, this is entertainment. “A good story teller knows how to not ruin a good story with the truth necesarily.” – Zach Snyder on 300

        Damn man why you are right 95% of the time?

          I do my homework! ;-)

      • Kal-El-1983

        “Who wants to hear that story?” That statement greatly saddens me..The story of the 47 ronin is an awesome story. Truth most of the time is way more exciting and intriguing than fiction. I don’t mind stylized films and stories..but it’s gotten to the point that the truth isn’t just picked around to make a decent story..its thrown away all together to please the lowest common denominator.

          I was being sarcastic when I said who wants to see that. The truth is I love a good true story, but I like documentaries for that. But the Hollywood comment is true, even when they do films like “Schindler’s List” they add some fanatic flair. Look at the recent “42″ so hoping for a straight up historical take from Hollywood is pretty much a waste.

          • Kal-El-1983

            there are many Historical stories that would make great films with minimum tweeking..Dracula’s story comes to mind. But with schindlers list while there were things tweeked, it still looked like the time period. This obviously isn’t close to Feudal Japan. I don’t expect hollywood to always to always be historical accurate..but some actual effort sometimes would be appreciated.

            Oh, well we really don’t know that. Sure the hero characters get cool stylized costumes, but it will probably still look like a period piece. Maybe a stylized Last Samurai look.. Who knows.. We’ll see when a trailer hits.

  • ErickKwon

    This is definitely looking like it’s going to be more “300″ rather than “13 Assassins”. Can’t wait for some footage

  • Avalon

    I’ve been waiting a looooonnnnng time for this movie to come out. Very happy to see some posters. It looks awesome!

  • waldomarek

    is that the one of the immortals from 300?
