Keanu Reeves, Knower Of Kung-Fu, Kicks And Punches In '47 Ronin' Trailer
Because 48 ronin would have been gaudy. Get this...an old favorite gets a RE-IMAGINING! Crazy, huh? While the idea of taking a beloved property and giving it a modern context is hardly new, it would appear that the producers of 47 Ronin hedged that concept against a number of other bold moves, including the bankability of the aging (but awesome and appropriate) Keanu Reeves, and giving first-time director Carl Rinsch a $170 million budget and the keys to the castle. It's far from definitive, but this trailer looks as though those risks may have paid off from a product standpoint. Now it's up to those boring suits at the studio to find a market for this promising film.
