VIDEO: Fantasy Emphasized in Russian "47 Ronin" Trailer

Delayed project to hit theaters this Christmas

While the 47 Ronin or Chushingura shaped as well as reflected notions of the samurai ethic in Japanese culture, the Hollywood version, starring Keanu Reeves, has prompted some comparisons to Dungeons and Dragons: Oriental Adventures. The new international trailer certainly supports the preconception that the movie has gone so far afield from the source material that it makes The Wolverine look like a sensible view of Japan.

 

The repeatedly delayed movie is now cheduled to be released this Christmas.
