Posted Tue Feb 11, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST by

The fantasy action flick starring Keanu Reeves slashing its way toward Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D has been fully detailed.

As previously reported, Universal is preparing '47 Ronin' for Blu-ray and 'Blu-ray 3D' in 2014, and now the date has been set for April 1.

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.

Each combo pack will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 audio, and Re-Forging the Legend. The 3D package includes three exclusives: Keanu & Kai; Steel Fury: The Fights of 47 Ronin; and Myths, Magic, and Monsters: The FX of 47 Ronin.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98 and suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D is $49.98.
