I came across this trailer originally from Movie Web – looks good to me. What else drew me to it? Well, when you watch the trailer it has something in common with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. What is that you ask? In a word: a dragon. It’s had production woes for some time but I have to admit that the trailer looks awesome.
Synopsis: An outcast named Kai joins a group of Ronin, led by Kuranosuke Oishi who seeks vengeance on Lord Kira for killing their master and banishing the group. The Ronin embark on a journey which encompasses challenges would defeat most warriors.
It looks very much like a gunpowder fantasy to me. Cool. 47 Ronin is scheduled for release December 25, 2013.
