47 Ronin (2013)
47 Ronin is a 2013 3D action movie directed by Carl Erik Rinsch. It was originally slated for release on November 21, 2012, but was pushed back to February 8, 2013 for further special effects work. It was later pushed back once again to Christmas Day 2013. It was later revealed that the film will actually premiere in Japan on December 6.
The film is based on the Japanese Chushingura legend, which is a fictionalized account of the real-life revenge of the Forty-seven Ronin for the death of their master, Asano Naganori. Because Chushingura is considered to be a separate entity from actual historical events, it’s common for minor details to change for each adaptation, even though the main theme of defending your honor in the face of certain death remains the same.
