’47 Ronin’ Clips: Keanu Reeves Faces Monsters and Spiders and Witches, Oh My!
Keanu Reeves is back in action, only this time he’s traded in his black leather ‘Matrix’ coat for a samurai sword in ‘47 Ronin.’ Ahead of the film’s December release, a batch of new clips have debuted online to preview his upcoming journey into the supernatural beyond.
For all the theatrics and special effects ’47 Ronin’ seems to offer, the film’s first impressions don’t prove to be much more than your basic popcorn action flick. Starring Reeves, ’47 Ronin’ can be judged by its cover in that he’s joined by a crew of 47 Ronin, leaderless samurai warriors, looking to restore their honor by exacting revenge on the evil warlord that killed their master and banished their kind. And, of course, Reeves is their secret weapon against the “savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.”
Such wondrous terrors include hybrid creatures and one villainous witch, played by ‘Pacific Rim’ star Rinko Kikuchi, who’s more than meets the eye. (HINT: watch the trailer.) ’47 Ronin’ hits theaters December 25, but until then, check out the latest clips from the film.
