Yesterday, Universal Pictures revealed a new trailer for the upcoming film 47 Ronin.

In the film, directed by Carl Rinsch, is a fictional account of a real-life group of samurai, the forty-seven ronin, who avenge the murder of their master.

Keanu Reeves plays a man named Kai, a half-breed, who was sold into slavery as a very young child.

It would turn out that the Lord Kira, the warlord who had held Kai captive for so many years, has killed the leader of his tribe and banished them from their land. Now, with the help of the half-breed that they once rejected, these forty seven ronin, led by Kuranosuke Oishi, must band together to fight back against the forces of evil.

The ronin embark on a journey with challenges that would defeat most warriors. They will have to face a plethora of beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft, and many other terrors as they attempt to avenge their fallen master and retake their land.

Slowly, the half-breed they once exiled will become their valuable asset, transforming into the hero that the people need to fulfill their destiny.

Here is a look at the trailer to the film 47 Ronin.

47 Ronin is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2013.
