Finally, "47 Ronin" Trailer is Here! 


Universal Pictures has finally given us the trailer for "47 Ronin," the Keanu Reeves samurai flick that has been suffering many setbacks as of late. The rumored $200 million movie from director Carl Rinsch is locked for a Christmas Day release which is already crowded with the opening of "Jack Ryan," "American Hustle," "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "Grudge Match," "Labor Day," and "August: Osage County."

Good luck to Universal Pictures which is still reeling from their other big-budget flop, "R.I.P.D." But the studio also made gazillions of dollars with "Fast & Furious 6" and "Despicable Me 2."

And maybe, just maybe, people still love Keanu and are soooo into Samurai movies. Right?

And the trailer looks good! With big special effects that will make your Christmas Day this year a tad more precious! HA!

Here's the official synopsis of "47 Ronin" and co-starring with Keanu are Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano, Rinko Kikuchi, and Min Tanaka.

Kai is an outcast who joins Oishi, the leader of the 47 outcast samurai. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.


Here's the trailer:

"The Conjuring" Movie Review -- Could This Be The Scariest Movie This Year? 


Another week, another scary movie. This one’s a bit different! It’s called “The Conjuring” and it’s not your typical run-of-the-mill horror movie. Directed by James Wan (“Insidious,” “Saw”) and based on actual events, the film tells the tale of two couples – first, we have Patrick Wilson as Ed Warren and Vera Farmiga as his trance medium wife Lorraine. They’re paranormal investigators that are about to get caught in the most terrifying cases of their lives.

Set in 1971 in Harrisville, Rhode Island, the Warrens meet the Perrons. There’s Carolyn (the always wonderful Lili Taylor), and Roger (Ron Livingston). Together with their kids, they just moved to a big but mysterious farmhouse. And then…you guessed it, things go bump in the night!

So is “The Conjuring” worth your time and money? Take a look:
