Following the release of the first posters for 47 Ronin yesterday, Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for 47 Ronin via Yahoo Movies.
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.
47 Ronin is scheduled to be released at movie theaters in the United States on December 25, 2013.
