I'm not sure they are banking on name recognition for the film. I imagine the story is well know in Japan but I doubt the rest of the world knows it that well or at all.

I think its like CaptAmerica said. It was an great story they used to build an epic FX fantasy film around like 300 did. Certainly most Americans who see it will go because it looks cool and fun, not because they want to see a historical docudrama.

Unfortunately, because the budget went so high they are going to have to pull in a really big box office to get a profit.

 FerretJohn have you ever seen a Robin Hood movie where King John was Dragon? Infact recently we have seen more "historical" stylized versions of both Robin Hood, King Arthur and even the Lost Legion movies had less fantasy elements. 

And even 300 was done in a manner that wasn't so much fantasy as story telling. It was a Spartan telling a story to motivate the troops. 

And many, if not all, of the "Musketeer" movies are horrible.

Horrible Musketeer movies?  BLASHEMY I SAY!  You, sir, have no sence of taste!  I never saw a Robin Hood where Prince John was a dragon, but I did see one where he had a strangley shifting mole.

 exactly so why would you do a 47 Ronin movie which is more akin to The Dirty Dozen, The Devil's Brigade, It's not Beowulf it's not even King Arthur. 

Why is Kira's wife suddenly a Dragon.. don't you think he might have noticed? 

More to that point this is a movie that was supposed to have come out almost 9 months ago which means chances are not only does it trample over the story it dosen't do it well. 

Actually so you are right it is likely like a Musketeer's movie... horrible. 

It's ashame becuase had they removed the CGI and produced a semi historical film it could have been amazing.... if they had removed Keanu's Character and replaced it with a semi known Japanese Actor like Mark Dacascos or even Masi Oka would have been better the Reeves.

I would think if people were wanting a semi historical samurai film with little to no CGI then they would watch The Last samurai with Tom Cruise. I thought this at least looked interesting and the only problem I have with it is Keanu Reeves so called "acting".

 Hulk that is like saying if you want a War Movie why would you want a Movie like Glory when Apocolypse now was made.

Just don't see it, it's simple. They're doing something different and I'm OK with it. Whether it's good or not I guess we'll see
