Why are so many people moaning about the fantasy aspect?  This is entertainment, not a historical docu-drama.  I've seen dozens of variations on The Three Musketeers and nobody bitched so much about how historically inacurate those were.  This looks interesting, I'm looking forward to it.

 @FerretJohn I think it is this is a well known and popular story based on a Historical Event with the standard title and no sub title. 

It would be like the Chinese making Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, and calling it Lincoln but where Lincoln is a Robot sent from the future. 

If it had a different title or a subtitle I think people would.

 ahhh, as usual bitches being bitches here on mania. I think it looks like a fun time at the movies and nothing more.

 I lik it. It's like a Japanese version of 300.

Kaz, well known and popular in Japan, less so everywhere else.  Certainly no more well known than the 300, Robin Hood, or the Musketeers.

 I have no idea about the previous story, this was the first time that I have watched anything about it... it looks okay. I just hope that KR at least gets to say Excellent and Whoa.... then it will be worth my $1 at cheap show or rental...

 kinetoscope, I think KR has that clause in all of his contracts that he must say "WHOAAAA!?"

Best quote I heard about this trailer:

"I'd rather see a snake/dragon lady then watch a bunch of dudes in robes, shuffling around, moping, and eating cereal"

That being said, I'm going to agree with folks and say why not just name it something else? I know they're banking on recognition, but the first film was made in the '40s. The only people who recognize the title are going to be pissed about all the changes.

This could be fun. The visuals actually remind me more of Sucker Punch than 300.  And Keanu is as wooden as ever.
