Get to know The Three Musketeers as envisioned by Paul WS Anderson

Sep. 9, 2011by: Dave Davis

It's possible you didn't realize that you wanted Alexandre Dumas' literary classic THE THREE MUSKETEERS brought to life with far more explosions, slo-mo action, anachronisms and improbable hair, but RESIDENT EVIL filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson is giving it to you nonetheless. And all in 3D.

Now you can get a good look at the sword-swinging prettyboys and their equally over-primped adversaries in some new posters and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The flick opens October 14, and it's all but guaranteed to be the only movie opening this year that features Orlando Bloom and his doppelganger.

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.

Does not look good

Next to this film, Disney's Three Musketeers looks like a classic masterpiece. And as much as I love this movie, it certainly isn't.
We might have thought that Paul WS Anderson could become a better director with the experience and time, but I just survived watching Resident Evil 4, and it was the worst in a series that already placed the bar very low.
Awful screenwriter and bad director, focusing only on style and failing miserably at it.

Looks pretty cool to me. The swordfighting looks decent and so does most of the actors.

These posters look so bad. Bloom especially. And with Anderson as the director, I'm pretty certain the film will be exactly what these posters imply.

What I would like to give a thumbs down to people just being dickheads about new adoptions of material that's already been done a hundred different times a hundred different ways, and people wanting to do their take. Lame that many people are creatively short sighted.

Not a fan of this guys work. It's got a pretty good cast, but then it's got stupid Milla Jovovich to ruin everything.

Milla Jovovich is an underrated actress; she just about stole Stone out from under Edward Norton and Robert DeNiro.

the other posters are just using single names so using the full name M'lady De Winter would seem out of place.

Butchering classics

I have witnessed what Hollywood did to "The Count of Monte Cristo". I'm betting the posters are as good as it's going to get.

I have so much to say on this subject, but it amounts to so little. So, glad these guys are enthusiastic, but I'll pass.

I pride myself on not being that guy who proclaims movies will suck before I see them (unlike many others).

That being said, this movie does not look like my type of movie - not to say it'll be bad, just not for me.

Which is a shame because with Mikkelsen, Stevenson, Waltz and others... this is a top notch cast.
