Paul W.S. Anderson’s take on “The Three Musketeers” have arrived with a trailer to satiate all your French fighting needs. It’s, uh, what you would expect from a Paul W.S. Anderson film, which is to say, if you’re a stickler for historical accuracies or, you know, any kind of accuracy at all, you best avert your eyes. (All Milla Jovovich needs is a shotgun and some tight pants and Anderson and company might have been able to get away with calling the film “Resident Evil: Musketeerin’” instead.) With recent news that the French are bombing the heck out of Libya, I guess it’s a apropos we go back in time to the glory days of Frenchland, back when men were men and Musketeers kicked serious ass. Check out the trailer below, won’t you?
The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D.
Starring Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelson, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
Swashbuckling their way into theaters October 14, 2011.
