Earlier today, one of our writers was about to post the trailer for the upcoming flick: 47 Ronin and our historically addicted EIC flayed him alive. Apparently, the Keanu Reeves vehicle, in addition to cardboard acting, has very little to do with the actual historical event. Instead of turning an already existing great story into a film, they have instead invested research time into creating CGI dragon-ladies and mace wielding giants.
Personally, I am against flaying, especially when it concerns my own skin, so instead I will be posting the preview pages to Mike Richardson and Stan Sakai's comic book mini-series 47 Ronin. Mike and Stan actually took the time to travel to Japan and work with historians to research their series. The latest issue just wrapped, so you can head out to your comic shop and pick up the mini-series now, or keep an eye out for the trade, which is sure to be coming soon.
If you want more details on the series, we just posted an interview with Stan Sakai and Mike Richardson from SDCC, check it out.
