has unveiled a new trailer online, featuring even more mythical mayhem than had previously been hinted at.
The new film stars Keanu Reeves as an exiled Ronin who leads 47 of his fellow warriors into battle with a treacherous warlord, in an attempt to restore their lost honour.

Directed by Carl Rinsch and co-starring Rinko Kikuchi, Hiroyuki Sanada and Tadanobu Asano,
will open in the UK on 26 December 2013.
