First Trailer For 47 Ronin

A 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.

Directed by Carl Erik Rinsch, and starring Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi, 47 Ronin is set to be released on December 25th, 2013.
