More preposterous period action in the latest trailer for The Three Musketeers
You might have thought that no one could possibly bring Alexandre Dumas' literary classic THE THREE MUSKETEERS to life quite like Douglas Fairbanks, Gene Kelly, Michael York or, um, Chuck Sheen.
But that was before RESIDENT EVIL filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson applied some gloriously absurd slo-mo swordplay, gunplay, cannonplay and flamethrowerplay to the tale. Not to mention some indescribably hilarious hair and hammy acting. Bear witness!
The synopsis: 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.
The flick opens October 14.
