Universal Moves 47 RONIN To February 8, 2013

I actually like this move other than the fact we will have to wait a few more months to see it. Universal has decided to move 47 RONIN from November 11 of this year to February 8, 2013 and have not given a reason for the decision (standard practice).

The move frees the film from having to go up against two other anticipated, tentpole 3D movies - THE HOBBIT and GRAVITY. Good idea. In February 47 RONIN only has to deal with another 2D iteration of the DIE HARD franchise.

It also clears the way to add or improve on the visual effects of the movie in post production which seems like a good idea when you have so many good things going for it (story, casting, score, costume design).

Here is how Keanu Reeves has described the movie:
It’s in 3D. It’s kind of a western. I call it a story of revenge and impossible love. The samurai become ronin, outcast, and decide to enact revenge on the person who is responsible for the death of their lord. And I play an outsider, a kind of half-breed with a mysterious past named Kai, who’s in love with the princess and she’s in love with me, but we can’t be together. But during this journey and revenge, things change.
