The Staggeringly Underwhelming Poster for Keanu Reeves' "47 Ronin"

Uninspired poster promotes Hollywood's version of defining story of samurai ethic

If the notion of a Hollywood adaptation of a defining story of samurai ethics starring Keanu Reeves fills you with trepidation, wait till you see the poster promoting 47 Ronin at the CinemaCon trade show. To say it's uninspired is an understatement:

 

 


The 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.

 

This poster really portrays that plot, huh!
