After the 'Matrix' trilogy, Keanu Reeves became synonymous with stylized martial arts goodness, so it's no surprise that his directorial debut is all about tough men kicking the snot out of each other. The first trailer and poster for 'Man of Tai Chi' have arrived and if you're the kind of person who likes movies where shirtless men punch each other across rooms, you're going to want to check 'em out.
It's been almost a decade since Keanu Reeves wrapped up 'The Matrix' trilogy, and over five years since his 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' remake, and in the interim Reeves has kept quiet. Sure, he's done some indie films, and produced a documentary, but he's been off the big screen for a while. But now he's signed on to star in 'Passengers,' which will return him to science fiction.
Before he became a part of the pop culture consciousness as the totally rad Ted Logan in 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' and skyrocketed to fame, Keanu Reeves had a bunch of smaller, less-noticeable roles. In today's Way Back When, we take a look at the career of a much younger Reeves, way back before Neo entered 'The Matrix.'
'47 Ronin' - the samurai tale starring Keanu Reeves - was originally set for release this November. It was then pushed back to February, 2013 claiming they wanted to "perfect the 3D" effects. But now the film is being pushed back even further - over a year after it was originally scheduled to hit theaters. So what gives?
