In the movie industry, Hollywood has made movies that have contain strong references to Japanese culture. Through the years, some have been successful and other have not.
Some examples include the James Bond classic You Only Live Twice starring Sean Connery(1967), the World War 2 classic Tora!Tora!Tora!(1970), Karate Kid Part II with Ralph Macchio(1986), Empire of the Sun with Christian Bale(1987), Black Rain with Michael Douglas(1989), Rising Sun with Sean Connery(1993), Windtalkers with Nicholas Cage(2002), The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise (2003), and the most recent box-office flop 47 Ronin(2013) starring Keanu Reeves.
