For a guy who has only directed one feature film in his life, and that movie is rumored to have some issues, it sure is a tad going overboard for the studio press materials to be calling Carl Rinsch a “visionary director”. But hey, maybe they know something we don’t.
In any case, check out two new International trailers for Rinsch’s “47 Ronin”, starring Keanu Reeves as The One that wills ave Japan from, from what I can tell, an evil Rinko Kikuchi and some monster types, including a pretty badass looking Silver Samurai.
From ancient Japan’s most enduring tale, the epic 3D fantasy-adventure “47 Ronin” is born. Keanu Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of the 47 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.
“47 Ronin” is helmed by visionary director Carl Erik Rinsch (“The Gift”). Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that’s never been seen before.
Starring Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano, and Rinko Kikuchi.
Keanu is the one this December 25, 2013.
