47 Ronin Off To A Slow Start At The Japanese Box Office
Unfortunately, it doesnít look like Carl Rinschís Japanese historical fantasy 47 Ronin will be adding much to that total, at least not in Japan, where the film took in a mere $1.3 million from its premiere. On the one hand, you think it would be a major project there since itís based on a Japanese legend, but on the other hand, itís a completely ludicrous take on the legend which probably didnít appease everyone they intended.
