47 Ronin has had a lot of delays, I won't lie. But constantly revisioned release dates or not, I'm still excited. Now scheduled for a Christmas Day release stateside, it stars and many a famous Japanese actor (like for example!) in an 18th century samurai tale of revenge.
And now there are four new posters that have dropped for our Christmas samurai treat, entitled "Outcast", "Warrior", "Freak" and "Witch". Take a peek below! My favorite...the 'freak'. That pose and that gun to me are pretty darn cool...if that's a freak nowadays, I'm in!
Here's a synopsis for the flick:
The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the ronin (the term for samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another.
How are everyone's excitement levels for 47 Ronin? Skyrocketing?
