I don't imagine there will be much in the way of story when it comes to 47 Ronin, which means this CG-heavy, Russian trailer for the Keanu Reeves starrer should suffice in promoting the film's effects-driven narrative.

Adapted from the Japanese tale, 47 Ronin casts Reeves as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of 47 outcast samurai. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.

The film finally hits theaters after a long delay this Christmas. Check out the new trailer below.

    Were the box office results for last weekend already posted? Or were they delayed because of Labor day?

    I like the samurai element but i'll pass on the cg monsters and swirly effects if it's all the same to you.

    The more tacky CG I see the less interested I am.
