    Keanu Reeves Joins Eli Roth's 'Knock Knock,' Benicio Del Toro Joins Denis Villeneuve's 'Sicario' & More

    Looks like Keanu Reeves might need to reboot his career a bit.

    "Thoroughly Bogus," "Disastrous," "Atrocious": First Reviews For '47 Ronin' Arrive

    A ballooning budget, reshoots, editing room wrangles and more have long marked "47 Ronin" as a cinematic poison apple.

    With production first beginning in 2011, it’s an understatement to say that Carl Rinsch’s 3D samurai epic “47 Ronin” is a long time coming. A little over a month separates us from the Keanu Reeves-starring film, and to ease the wait, Universal Pictures has released two new clips from the film.
