‘47 Ronin’ Posters Reveal New Look at Keanu Reeves as Kai

These teaser one-sheets feature art created for the film’s original 2012 launch date, which has since been changed to Christmas 2013.

47 Ronin, which follows a band of samurai in the 18th century out to avenge the death of their master, was originally set for release in the summer of 2012. That of course changed, and we will now be seeing this Keanu Reeves action epic from director Carl Rinsch this Christmas. Some advanced teaser posters were created for the original 2012 release date, and they have now been leaked, offering up a look at Keanu Reeves as Kai, alongside his nemesis in the film, an armored shogun warrior. These images won't be used in the official marketing launch, but they do offer a good idea about what we'll be seeing once 47 Ronin begins its promotional push later in the year. Expect things to heat up in late summer. For the time being, bite on this first artwork, which gives us a good idea about what we can expect to see.

    @aoshi You never know. Keanu hasn't been in a movie for quite awhile. Maybe he'll surprise us all with an unbelievably great performance... or do the exact same sh*t he did in The Day the Earth Stood Still remake.

    I like Keanu so i'll watch it but something about a white guy leading a samurai army just doesn't sit well with me.

    @thehost91 oh, I'll see it anyways too, I'm too much of a samurai fanboy to miss it, plus this story is rather cool. I'll just be cringing and cursing every time I see Keanu on screen, so I'm apologizing beforehand to all those poor suckers who end up at my screening.

    Seriously, this is akin to Japan making a movie about the U.S. Civil War starring Ken Watanabe as an American Confederate soldier at the battle of Gettysburg, because they want the movie to appeal to Japanese audiences.

    Except Watanabe can act, at least.

    KEANU REEVES??? KEANUE F*CKING REEVES IS A SAMURAI???? Hey, at least Tom Cruise wasn't pretending to be a Japanese samurai, wtf is this? They completely soiled on this story by casting Keanu in it.
