First poster for Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers is just a bunch of text!

Sep. 3, 2010by: George Merchan

Haha, holy shit! Just the other day I wrote about the poster for Disney's SECRETARIAT saying it was one of the most basic one sheets I've seen in a long time. And now, out of nowhere, comes the first poster for Paul W.S. Anderson's THE THREE MUSKETEERS (in 3D) and it completely takes the crown for most weirdly plain poster for a major film I think I've ever seen. Maybe I'm missing the artistry behind it, or maybe it's actually not a finalized poster meant to be seen by the general public. Whatever the case is, it's out in public and I'm mocking it.

THE THREE MUSKETEERS swashbuckle their way into theaters April 15, 2011.

Extra Tidbit: I haven't seen the 1993 iteration of THE THREE MUSKETEERS, but... is it a comedy? It must be, with weirdo casting like Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris O'Donnell, and Oliver Platt??

I know!

Let me guess....This movie is about Milla Jovovich as a female musketeer named Alice who doesn't remember who she was and later goes on to ruin 4 movies..Don't even worry about supporting cast members, this movie will be all about her....

Three Musketeers in 3D means I will walk into a theater and throw 3 Musketeers candy bars into the faces of people dumb enough to see this in 3D. There's you 3D. Also, the 93 movie was awesome, and O'Donnell deserves better roles.

From the director of Resident evil......shoot me

I wouldn't be interested to see this even if he wasn't attached to the film, but that is just icing on the shit cake.

I don't know

First off, 3D? Are you serious. Are we gonna have swords coming at our faces. There is no reason to have this movie in 3D. Poster is not good but I may check it out IN 2D of course. I'm skeptical about the cast but I do like Christoph Waltz. We shall see.

They passed up the chance of having 'The Three-D Musketeers' on the teaser poster?

I'm impressed... I think.

Fuck this movie. I'd rather see a sequel to the original. Now that would be awesome.

A sequel to "the original"? Which one would that be, the 1903 silent version? I think that particular ship has sailed.

Milla Jovovich needs to take a step back and reassess her career. I mean, shit, her most believable acting involved her not speaking English the entire movie.

Action Comedy

If you've read Dumas' novel then you'll know that it's got a lot of comedy in it. I always thought of it as more of a swashbuckling action comedy. While reading the book there were several times I laughed outloud. I'm really looking forward to this film. Not sure the 3D is needed, but whatever, I'll just see it in 2D.

Oliver Reed

I love Oliver Reed, Michael York & Raquel Welch 1973 The Three Musketeers. This however will probably be utter crap, & why the hell doesn't it need to be 3D?

Yeah, let's just give "Academy Award Winner Christoph Waltz" last billing. Like, after Percy Jackson and everything.

Assholes.

I'd rather watch the Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting music video for the '93 theme song on a loop.

I also like the 93 Musketeers. Then we had that average Man in the Iron Mask with Di Caprio (should that count as a 3 Musketeers movie?) and that piece of shit matrix-like movie with the guy from Greys Anatomy...

'93 Musketeers

That movie was a personal favourite of mine as a kid, and I still enjoy watching it. It's a Disney movie. Great adventure movie with great cast and lots of fun.
I still watch it dubbed in French though, since those characters ARE french and apparently the actors' accents are pretty bad.
As for Anderson's movie, well, I still hope it'll be a good entertaining movie, but the guy's resume is not playing in his favor. AND JUST GET THE "3D" OFF THIS POSTER, for Cinema's sake...

You should watch the 1993 one

It's not the best film in the world, but with Jack Bauer and TIM CURRY, it's nothing short of enjoyable.

That kind of poster might have worked if the names plastered all over it actually meant something to anyone.

Totally agree. The only name on that list I care about is Christoph Waltz.
