Friday One Sheet: Beautiful Watercolours




We have seen nothing from the long gestating 47 Ronin since the movie was originally announced in 2008. It’s been four years, and two release date changes, hopefully the December 25th date is final, and we finally have our first look at the movie which stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Rinko Kikuchi, Kou Shibasaki, and Jin Akanishi in a stylized, fictionalized take on the real life forty seven ronin tale, about a group of Samurai who are seeking revenge for the killing of their leader and banishment of their group.

I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of the 3D spectacle, with an estimated budget of $170M and directed by Carl Rinsch, an untried director best known for his music videos and commercials (no doubt Universal is hoping for Warner Brothers’ The Matrix type of success), in the coming months but these beautiful posters are a great start.
