Keanu Reeves returns to the action-adventure genre with 47 Ronin, and ET caught up with Keanu in Japan, along with Rinko Kikuchi and their co-stars, to talk samurai training and the legendary story upon which the film is based. Watch the video!
In theaters now, 47 Ronin finds keanu as a half-white, half-Japanese warrior who joins the fight of 47 leaderless samurai (aka Ronin) who vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people after a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind. Fighting their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors, the samurai must transform Keanu's character into a true hero -- and their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity. Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano co-star.
