Let's see 47 Ronin at the Regal Cinemas in Crocker Park.
Yeah, since it stars Keanu Reeves, everyone is going to think this is going to be Matrix set in feudal Japan, but 47 Ronin is actually an American remake of the 1941 classic film. That means it could be classy. Well maybe.
Synopsis from IMDB:
Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to action-adventure in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors. As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
Anyway, the previews looks pretty decent. If you want to see them, click HERE or HERE .
UPDATE: We'll be seeing the 3D version at 7:40. ( The non-3D version has a limited showing and is only at 4:40)
If anyone would like to meet beforehand for an appetizer of adult beverage, let's meet at Bar Louie (9 Main Street, just across the corner from the theater) at 6:00. I'll try to get there a few minutes early to watch for anyone who signs up.
