47 Ronin sequel/Blade of the 47 Ronin: All you need to know

47 Ronin sequel is one of the most anticipated flicks of all time. Its first installment was dropped in December 2013 and miserably failed to garner positive reviews from the critics. However, a follow to the action-fantasy film gives fresh hope to the viewers globally. 47 Ronin is a retelling of a famous story set in 18th century Japan, with elements of fiction, and creative imagination. Following the tale of 47 ronins who sought revenge for their feudal lord, Asano Naganori, 47 Ronin was not anything close to a smash hit. The Carl Rinsch directed film scored $150 million against its hefty budget and was also, termed as a major box office bomb of 2013. Despite that, Universal has greenlit the film for a sequel in 2020, which has been in talks for quite some time. Here’s everything you need to know about the 47 Ronin sequel/ Blade of the 47 Ronin.
