Trailer Watch – 47 Ronin

Hot off the trailer presses (that is how these things are made, right?) comes 47 Ronin, a tale of an outlaw misfit samurai destined to kick ass and take names. Or maybe just kick ass… I saw no evidence in the trailer of a name list.

Let’s hope the supporting cast in this 300/The Last Samurai mashup is good, because with Keanu Reeves at the helm, I want to feel SOMETHING – is that too much to ask?

But perhaps my favourite part of all is that with a film stacked with explosive CGI, schwingy battle scenes and probably a sex scene or two… is its Christmas 2014 release date. Ho ho shogun, am I right? Check out the trailer below:
