Exclusive Clip: Keanu's Relentless Drive in '47 Ronin'
By David Weiner
"Unrelenting" and totally involved in the production process, Keanu Reeves is a strong creative force on the set and behind the scenes, according to 47 Ronin director Carl Rinsch -- but he's also not afraid to show his tender side. Watch Keanu in action behind the scenes in this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray bonus features, available everywhere Tuesday!
"I've enjoyed that process, to be able to get in there and play a little bit," says Keanu. "It's been a unique experience. A great acting opportunity. A great role."
In 47 Ronin, Keanu returns to the action-adventure genre 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 -- who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity. Rinko Kikuchi, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano co-star.
Special features on the 47 Ronin Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack include deleted scenes and the behind-the-scenes featurettes Keanu & Kai, Steel Fury: The Fights of 47 Ronin, Re-Forging The Legend and Myths, Magic & Monsters: The FX of 47 Ronin.
