First Trailer for THE THREE MUSKETEERS

The first trailer for The Three Musketeers has gone online and it is a doozy. This is The Three Musketeers as only director Paul W.S. Anderson could make it.  And that way is incredibly stupid.  While I won’t hold up the 1993 version as a piece of brilliant modern cinema, it at least felt like a good, old-fashioned adventure movie that wasn’t embarrassed by its source material.  Watching the trailer for this new version try so hard to be bad-ass and cool just makes me sad.  I half-expected one of the characters to turn directly to the camera and shout, “Classic literature, motherfucker!” and then tossing a 3D book into the audience and the book explodes.  I suppose having one of the characters solemnly utter a line like “Only we can prevent the coming apocalypse,” will have to do.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelson, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz.  The Three Musketeers opens in 3D on October 14th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Three Musketeers:

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D.
