A Bad Look at a Better Hollywood "47 Ronin" Poster

"Outsider, Demon, Witch, and Savage"

Following the infamous green flames poster for the Hollywood remake of classic samurai revenge ethics epic 47 Ronin, and following the delay of the film from this Thanksgiving to next year, Jeff Sneider from Variety tweeted a photo of a new character portrait poster for the film, which stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi.

 

 

 

Versus the last poster we saw:

 

 

Reeves described the film like so:

It’s in 3D. It’s kind of a western. I call it a story of revenge and impossible love. The samurai become ronin, outcast, and decide to enact revenge on the person who is responsible for the death of their lord. And I play an outsider, a kind of half-breed with a mysterious past named Kai, who’s in love with the princess and she’s in love with me, but we can’t be together. But during this journey and revenge, things change.
