Three Musketeers cross swords in first teaser trailer

Mar. 25, 2011by: Paul Tassi

It's news when Paul W.S. Anderson is making a movie that isn't RESIDENT EVIL related at this point, and if you've forgotten what that might look like, there's now a trailer for THE THREE MUSKETEERS.

It had me had dual octuple crossbows, or whatever the hell those things are in the first few seconds, but lost me when it plugged being in 3D no less than three times in a 90 second spot. I get that Anderson actually shoots his movies in 3D rather than upconverting, but I have yet to see a good feature in shitty Real 3D and I won't be shelling out for this one.

But outside of the obvious "3D" moments in the trailer, the action looks good and it's nice to see that Orlando Bloom isn't dead and Milla Jovovitch is still hot. Check it out below or see it in HD at Apple.

urrrgh

Will someone please pass a law making it illegal for directors to cast their wives in movies? I got nothing against Milla, but its so annoying when everytime a director makes a movie, he has to cast his wife in it (See Judd Apatow, Tim Burton, Rob Zombie, Kevin Smith..)

Sorry, I guess I'm still bitter at Paul WS Anderson for ruining two potentially awesome franchises (AVP, Resident Evil).

I loved RE4 in 3D. It had so many gratuitous awesome 3D action scenes, I don't understand the hate for that series.

Milla? Ray Stevenson?

Of course it has nothing on The Three Amigos!

"Sigh"

**looks at watch**
Every 3 to 5 years like fucking clockwork, Hollywood busts out yet ANOTHER shit'tastic version of either 3 Musketeers, Robin Hood or Romeo & Juliet.

Action packed and a good cast... it looks good. And as long as it was filmed in 3D and not converted, I'll be watching this in the theaters.

Paul Anderson abysmal track record aside, why the hell do I have a mild curiosity in this? I'll stress mild, I'm sure it'll suck.....

This looks like a pretty crazy time! I am very interested in the sort of steam-punk vibe going throughout this.

Look what I can do

It will probably be like Anderson's last 3D snooze-fest. A bunch of scenes strung together by a few "revolutionary" 3D set-pieces that were all supposed cream our pants over. I'll hold my final thoughts until after I see the film, but honestly I've given him enough attempts to impress me and save for Event Horizon, he hasn't done so yet.

I really wanted to say that "the cast of villains and "the musketeers" was so solid, that this movie could do no wrong....but GODDAMN, this looks like shit. As much of a Ray Stevenson fanboy as I may be, there is no reason for Milla (who, without IMDB, I'm assuming is either De Winter or Queen Anne) to have any real role or for there to be flying ships or for there to be flame throwers or any other forms of stupidity I have witnessed (aside from said Stevenson and a few glimpses of Waltz and

This summer has too good a lineup for these shenanigans.

Could be fun. I like that this one actually has a director that understands how to film an action sequence (unlike the guy who did "The Musketeer", which was awful). Plus Milla can do no wrong in my eyes.

You know, I've never terribly minded Anderson. He makes some good guilty pleasures like "Mortal Kombat" and "Death Race". Wasn't too fond of "Alien vs. Predator". But this looks entertaining and exactly what it should be: swashbuckling adventure.

Side Note: for some reason, although I don't mind Logan Lerman at all, I feel the sudden urge to want to roundhouse kick him in the face in each shot of this trailer he's in. No idea why.

There's Mads, on the rooftop with the eyepatch! Didn't see him at first. This looks like fun, and with enough great actors to make it worthwhile even beyond the kinetic action and the crazy steampunkish gadgetry.

I feel sorry for any actor that signs up for a Paul WS Anderson movie, except milla because she deserves to only be in his films. This looks bad. I think I'll just rewatch The Man in the Iron Mask again instead of seeing this turd.

Milla can be good when she's not doing her dumb husband's movies. "A Perfect Getaway" shows off her acting quite nicely. But then she does these big, booming, mindless action-movies and it muddies up her career even more than helps it.

This looks fantastic. Spectacular sets, kinetic action, slo-mo, finest actors and the ethereal Milla Jovovich. But am I speaking cinematically? Nah-ah. I'm talking future cult guilty pleasure a la The Last Starfighter and Wicker Man. Worth a rental. But I hope it boosts Matthew MacFaydden's popularity in Hollywood, if it does "commercially" well.

Most of those scenes (Milla's Pete Townshend knee slide through a hallway death trap) look like digitally altered scenes from Andersons' RE movies.
Yeah I'll be skipping this.

Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu and Mads Mikkelsen as Rochefort! I'm gonna watch this just for them!

Also, I'm a fan of Ray Stevenson since HBO's Rome.

I just don't think the same guy that's been shitting on the Resident Evil franchise for 5 movies is the same one capable of bringing us a decent Three Musketeers flick. This looks like it could be stupid fun though.. so I'm holding out. Great cast too.

I really pity the cast that was assembled for this. This looks like an absolute travesty. Not that I had much faith in Anderson, but with a cast including Christoph Waltz, Mads Mikkelsen, Matthew MacFayden and Ray Stevenson, one can dream. I am a bit surprised how hard it seems to pull off a decent Musketeers movie. Though again, Anderson is far from the man I'd peg to do that justice.

WTF did I just watch?

A flying ship, kung-fu fighting, dual-wielding crossbows? Um... last time I checked Alexander Dumas never wrote anything like that in "The Three Musketeers." Why does Hollywood keep making "Robin Hood" and "Musketeer" movies? Seriously.... Is the well that dry that they got to every 10 years or so return to something people seen a half-dozen times? Leave it to Paul Wes Anderson to ruin a beloved classic. Hell, I'll take the Disney Charlie Sheen movie over this.
