The fantasy action flick starring Keanu Reeves is slashing its way toward Blu-ray, and you can pre-order it now.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing '47 Ronin' for Blu-ray and 'Blu-ray 3D' in 2014.

From ancient Japan's most enduring tale, the epic 3D fantasy-adventure '47 Ronin' is born. Keanu Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of 47 outcast samurai. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors. '47 Ronin' is helmed by visionary director Carl Erik Rinsch. Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that's never been seen before.

Specs and supplements have yet to be detailed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98 and suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D is $49.98.
