We got an early glimpse of the logo at Comic-Con, but Summit Entertainment has released the first poster for Paul W.S. Anderson’s adaptation of The Three Musketeers. It’s a bit on the austere side, but highlights all you need to know. Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Mads Mikkelsen, Luke Evans, James Corden, Juno Temnple, Freddie Fox, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz star. It’s in 3D. There will be swords. And old-fashioned guns. Check out the poster after the jump.
When we interviewed him, Anderson commented on his attachment to the material:
“I’m also a big fan of the original book and I’ve loved all the movie adaptations. I think it’s really one of the classic stories. It’s an amazing story, which is why I think it deserves to be retold, and it is retold. Every generation has their Three Musketeers, and I’m very happy that we’re going to be this generation’s Three Musketeers. We’re going to tell it in a slightly different way, but it’s going to be the classic story.
The idea of doing a period movie, some people say, ‘Isn’t it odd that you’re doing a period movie? That’s a change of pace for you.’ And, I’m like, ‘Not really.’ When you’re doing a science fiction movie, it’s almost exactly the same. You have to design every set and you have to design every costume. There’s really so much in common because they’re all about creating a world that the audience can be immersed in. I certainly have the skill set to make a period movie, and I’m very excited to be doing that.”
The Three Musketeers hits 3D theaters on April 15, 2011. Via Trailer Addict:
