New Three Musketeers Trailer Leaps In
One for... Oh, you know the drill

28 June 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: YouTube

The first trailer for Paul WS Anderson’s take on The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale of adventure, that arrived back in March, now almost feels like it was just a tease for this, the first full trailer. Take a look below.

This time around, we’re treated to more plot info, which boils down to the baddies – Christoph Waltz’ sneaky Cardinal Richelieu, Milla Jovovich’s killer Milady and Orlando Bloom’s slightly misguided, airship-obsessed Duke of Buckingham – planning to conquer the entire continent of Europe with superior firepower and a hefty army.

So it’s up to the heroic musketeers – Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Luke Evans) – to stop them. Along for the ride is D’Artagnan (Percy Jackson’s Logan Lerman), a wannabe member of the team who gets a chance to prove his steel.

The Dumas story is really just a jumping off point for Anderson to indulge in his favourite things: explosions, people jumping around, more explosions and his missus (Jovovich) looking good while holding weapons and being athletic. Oh, also? Explosions.

We get to see what all the fuss is about when the film arrives on October 12.

Reckon this one will go down in the "guilty pleasures" pile pretty sharpish. Total pap probably, but worth a chuckle or two. More

I wonder, has PWSA even read Dumas' novel? More

Right, well when the last trailer came out I spent a long time ranting about PWS Anderson and how he's a hack (which I stick to) and how The Three Musketeers requires a steady handed director and should be adapted carefully and faithfully....I've changed my mind. This looks like a lot of fun. Definately the best of Anderson's so far. No doubt it'll have deficiencies in some regards, but I'm definately warming to it. More

RE: Oh, look, more slow-motion fighting...
It does not look good. It may be fun but the trailer is not selling that. The pretty unsubtle "THIS SHALL BE A 3D MOMENT" which are peppered throughout the trailer also does not inspire great trust in it. More

RE: Oh, look, more slow-motion fighting...
I'm not sure about this... It could be a lot of fun but I think I would have preferred a straight adaptation. The casting seems wrong as well. Nobody looks like they're playing the right role, there's no one who carries the same screen presence as Oliver Reed or John Malkovich. For all it's faults, I think The Man In The Iron Mask had a stunning cast, and I can't see any of these guys matching that. I'm happy to be proven wrong. More
