A new Japanese trailer has arrived online for
, in which Keanu Reeves' exiled warrior teams up with the titular samurai to reclaim a land polluted by evil.
The new trailer makes some of the major plot points a little more explicit, explaining that the forces that banished Reeves' character are now in control of the kingdom, and thus making it clear why he is so keen to get involved.
There's plenty of barmy stuff in there too though, with dragons, witches and various other mythical beasts vying for your attention.

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