Keanu Reeves (The Matrix trilogy, The Day The Earth Stood Still) stars in a reimagining of one of Japan's timeless tales, 47 Ronin, available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-Ray and DVD on 14th May 2014 from Universal Pictures UK.

Based on an epic story, this extraordinary tale of inspiring courage has its origins in the early 18th century. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and reclaim their honour. Transformed into a thrilling, visually stunning 3D film by director Carl Rinsch, 47 Ronin tells the story of a small group of warriors, or ronin, on a quest to avenge the death of their master. Battling across a savage world of mythical beasts, shape-shifting witches and wondrous terrors, the ronin must seek help from kai (Reeves), an enslaved half-breed they once rejected - in their ultimate fight for redemption.

Keanu Reeves leads an international cast that includes Hiroyuki Sanada (Sunshine, The Last Samurai) as Oishi, the leader of the ronin; Tadanobu Asano (The Wolverine, Thor: The Dark World) as Lord Kira, the treacherous villain who will stop at nothing to destroy his enemies; Academy Award®-nominated actress Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) as the Witch, a siren who executes Kira's deadly plans; and Ko Shibasaki (The Lady Shogun and Her Men, One Missed Call) as Mika, the forbidden love of Kai's life.

  • Re-forging the legend - The story of 47 Ronin is one of Japan's most time-honoured legends. The filmmakers talk about how they brought this "dream world" to the big screen, from script to costumes, visual design, and culture

  • Keau & Kai - Keanu Reeves embodies one of cinema's most richly imagined heroes as Kai, the outcast who leads a small band of rebels against an army and supernatural enemies. Along with Reeves, director Carl Rinsch and other key voices from the filmmaking team reveal how this adventure would not be possible without Reeves' mastery of martial arts and total immersion in the role
  • Steel fury: The fights of 47 Ronin - This featurette explores the intense research, choreography and rehearsals that went into creating the film's unique action sequences, including Kai's epic battle against the silver Samurai and the heart-stopping Kirin hunt sequence
  • Myths, Magic & Monsters: the FX of 47 Ronin - 47 Ronin's world-class creative team reveals the technological magic it used to bring to life the creatures of ancient Japanese folklore, including The Kirin (a giant hybrid beast with the head of a dragon and the body of a deer), the Kitsune witch, the Oni troll and the demonic Tengu Monks
