In the upcoming fantasy actioner "47 Ronin," Keanu Reeves plays one of 47 fearless (and leaderless) samurai who keep their warrior honor by fighting off a string of mythical villains in a last-ditch effort to save their homeland from evil. And in this new UK trailer, we get a peek at one of Reeves' all-powerful opponents: a menacing dragon sorcerer played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi, who practically does a 180 compared to her last role in Guillermo del Toro's monster-brawl "Pacific Rim," as the meek, timid and aspiring Jaegers jockey.
After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors. As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
47 Ronin stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano, Rinko Kikuchi
