Milla Jovovich is not pleased with Summit's marketing for The Three Musketeers

10.21.2011
UPDATE: Poor Milla. Summit got word of her Twitter rant and responded with "She doesn't know what she's talking about and we don't know where she's coming from." Well there you go! More from Summit's rebuttal HERE.

I haven't seen THE THREE MUSKETEERS yet, but I'm sure at some point I will. The buzz I've heard around the film is mainly all complaints about Paul W.S. Anderson and how much he "sucks" or how the movie looks like it sucks.

Well, who is to blame here? The film just came out so we don't really have any solid numbers. After this weekend we will know where the film really stands. Star of the film and wife of the director, Milla Jovovich believes that Summit Entertainment is to blame due to poor marketing. She's wondering why this film hasn't been hyped up more.

The actress took to Twitter to express her concerns:

"Also, "3 musketeers" opens in the US 2night! Do you think ppl know abt the movie? Ask your friends! Do they know it's a fun family film? Are "summit" promoting it as a family adventure movie? Or are they resting on their laurels from "twilight" n making no effort? Let me know!"

"I think "summit" hve swept "3 Musketeers", a grt family adventure film, under the rug in the US. Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU "SUMMIT"."

What do you think the problem is? Is it Summit? The trailer? The director? Or a little bit of everything?

The only redeeming quality about this movie experience was the 3D "Star Wars" trailer. After twenty minutes I left the theater. I could take the nonsense that was happening in front of me. It is god-awful. Truely. Paul W.S. Anderson is almost as bad as people think Michael Bay is. The only difference is Bay knows how to direct action sequences. On a sidenote, is Milla Jovovich retarded? Can't she spell out whole words?

to answer your question. No Mila is not retarded. She's using Twitter. I've never used it, but I believe it shortens your words so your responses are shorter.

Step away from the crack pipe Milla

Is she retarded? Or been in a coma for the last two months? This is been marketed to death. Every time I turn around a I see a commercial. Now of course, as this site pointed out (I believe) EVERYONE is fast forwarding through that shit if they have Tivo...but they are airing.

Gawd

I wish people would get over Paul WS Anderson's version of Resident Evil, which is the primary reason for all the hate. He's a very capable director, as he has proven with films like Event Horizon and Shopping. As for this Milla rant, I agree with whoever said she should have sued her Twitter to PROMOTE the film

instead of using her twitter to bash the promotion, just use your twitter to promote it! Shamed to admit I saw it and enjoyed it, its terrible on every level but some pretty cool action sequences

are you literally that desperate to see explosions that you thought 3 musketeers had good action? P. Anderson is FUCKING horrible at action, but I'm guessing you liked his Resident Evil movies, and thought the action was "tight." Do pretty colors amuse you too?

It's never cool to throw the studio under the bus, even if they deserve it. Seriously for a movie entitled "3 Musketeers" I see more of her in the ads than the musketeers, what gives?

This is just another Milla vehicle where she is the primary focus of every single trailer and tv ad that is released. What makes this movie different than those other movies where she does nothing but bounce around killing things?

Now shut the hell up Mila & you & your hubby go make another crappy Resident Evil sequel.

I think they have two more in development and they're going the Fast Five route, everyone, EVERYONE dead or alive comes back. It'll be a winner.

Give me a brake.

It's not Summit's fault that this is a crappy movie. They can only work with what they have, and this looks like a dumb ass movie.

Jesus

Where do I even begin? Should it matter what this woman has to say considering she's probably passed on far Greater roles to instead play dress-up for her retarded Directing Husband?

In the years since she started, I've watched her career, especially under Paul WS Anderson's direction, take a BIG.... BIG BADA BOOM!

Hey Milla, I hope you read this. Get a fucking divorce.

You do realize I wasn't talking about responding directly to Milla's tweets, merely faux-longing for the ability to gibber out loud to myself via Twitter much as Milla is currently doing? ;)
As for Facebook, I never bothered with that, either. Fuck all of that pointless noise.

Hey look, it's Paul WS Anderson's lone defender, yet again...

Try reading, y'all. She's saying the film was mismarketed, not that it suffered a lack of marketing. After a year of anticipation, I saw it today and while it isn't the technical achievement I had hoped for, it's fun spectacle that relishes its own ridiculousness (that's not to say it's particularly great, but I'll keep from the negatives since everyone else is so ready to shower complaints on everything W.S. touches). But more pertinently, it IS a family film! Yeah, yeah, they say "shit" every

But more pertinently, it IS a family film! Yeah, yeah, they say "shit" every once in a while... but the tongue-in-cheek tone of the picture is far from the hard action, "Resident Evil with swords & plumes"-style the trailers put forth. Yes, it is typical of someone to say this sort of thing prior to official announcement that their film has bombed, but for what it's worth I'm a devotee of Milla's Twitter feed and therein she expresses some of the most honest, enthusiastic and heartfelt thoughts for her fans - she's an inspiration, really. And she's far too busy with performances, modeling, press junkets and mothering to simply be sitting there "sucking [her] husband's cock" and not paying attention to what's going on around her. And the spelling? Come on, guys, it's Twitter. You only get so many characters... and she's always typing from her iPhone (which, thanks to Twitter, we happen to know was often stowed in her 3M costume for between-take tweeting).
Now just get on with it and make with the thumbs-downs.

I thought it was marketed more like Pirates of the Caribbean than anything else, which is what they (and Milla) were going for. The movie is just shit.

His movies suck. Resident Evil movies are fucking horrible, and for idiots that think they are watching "good" action. Seriously how can you defend this idiot? Resident evil hard action? I Lol'd to myself.

Milla Jovovich keeping her clothes on hurt this film, not the marketing. What other reason is there to see it? We've seen Musketeer movies up the wazzu for years.

this is funny, because I see trailers for this trash every commercial break on TV. when I first heard they were making this, I thought it sounded kind of cool, then I saw the trailer with flying ships, and the assassins creed rip offs, let alone the punisher guy. then I decided not to go. HBO or redbox for me. I dont even think it deserves a trip to the rental store

Milla's last inkling of credibility died shortly after RE1. I haven't given half a damn about anything she's thought, said, or done after that.

Nah

I hate when filmmakers/actors use this excuse right before they know their film will bomb. Everyone knows about "3 musketeers", everyone knows it'll be shite.

I've seen tons of commercials for this. But the real issue with the marketing is not the lack thereof but too much of MILLA. Its not that i dislike her, but all of the promotional material shows her more than the actual 3 musketeers! is this a chick fighting flick or is it a 3 musketeers movie? I think audiences were just confused by the trailer cus all u see is Milla in a dress dodging bullets the whole time.

This is something like the fifth remake in the last twenty years? I'd rather that Hollywood get off the remake bandwagon and start making something more original. If they don't start making more original movies now, they won't have anything to remake twenty years from now!

They've been showing trailers for this piece of shit since the summer. I dont know what shes talking about. I see commercials everyday for it. They'd be better off saying a "Milla Jovovich movie is coming out" and showing nothing, than actually showing the trailers anyway.

This movie's been marketed to death here in Portugal. I tell you, I don't think I've seen so much TV spots for any other movie. She's just wrong. It's the movie that sucks, not the marketing.

I think she's WAY off. I've seen more commercials for this stupid movie then any in recent memory. And everytime it does come on, everyone in the room pretty much simultaneously complains about how stupid it looks. Nothing Summit can do about that.
