Movies tend to open and fade away. Such is the nature of modern box office. But Christmas is the one time of year where that's not always the case. Which is why -- kind of out of nowhere, but it makes perfect sense -- Frozen came close to being the number one film of the weekend, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire now seems like it could...

Hollywood can't help but re-write beloved myths and lore in ways that just rip away their greatness. 47 Ronin falls short of the history of the 47 lordless Samurai who exact revenge to honor their leader and land. This adaptation relies on stunning visual effects and stylized action sequences to compensate for its lack of story.

As a production, the Keanu Reeves vehicle 47 Ronin film was besieged with problems, delayed for over a year and  had a massive amount of reshoots. As a trailer, 47 Ronin looks kind of cool. And though it's easy to think about the film's troubled history, this new trailer gives the film a scale and scope that could turn it into the sleeper...

Pre-release buzz is what it is. For every film that is supposedly doomed by it (like The Lone Ranger) there's another that proves pre-release noise is just that (World War Z). So what's going to happen with the long-delayed 47 Ronin? Who's to say, but we bet it does substantially better internationally, and now...

47 Ronin was originally scheduled for release in November of 2012. Then it got bumped to February, 2013, and now it's scheduled for December 25, 2013. But the good news for this troubled production (much like with World War Z), is that it never made public its intent to come out. Theaters weren't covered in posters, there weren't trailers...

There have already been reports that the movie 47 Ronin is in trouble, and now things only seem to be getting worse. A lot worse. Apparently director Carl Rinsch has been removed from the editing room by Universal, like a naughty schoolboy from a classroom (ouch), and the studio is working to try and save the film, which has seen its budget balloon up to $225 million....

For those of you who thought the upcoming Alien prequel would be directed by Carl Rinsch, think again.
