The Three Musketeers

We've seen a lot of posters recently, but I couldn't pass up this one up, it's too fun. Yahoo has debuted the first poster for Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers in 3D. We've seen at least one trailer, but not other posters before and wham, we've got an adventurous mash-up of the musketeers and lots of other cast - increasing in size up to Orlando Bloom (who, by the way, plays the Duke of Buckingham). Speaking of the musketeers, they are: Matthew Macfadyen (Athos), Ray Stevenson (Porthos), Luke Evans (Aramis), and Logan Lerman (D'Artagnan). My favorite part of this poster - Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu.

The Three Musketeers Poster

The Three Musketeers, which was actually shot entirely in 3D, is being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (of Resident Evil, Death Race, Event Horizon) with a script adapted from Alexandre Dumas' novel by Andrew Davies and Alex Litvak (Predators). Summit Entertainment has this set for release on October 21st, later this year. In addition to the four Musketeers above, The Three Musketeers also stars Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham, Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu, Mads Mikkelsen as Rochefort, Til Schweiger as Cagliostro, Juno Temple as Queen Anne and Milla Jovovich as M'lady De Winter. Anyone going to see this?

    Wow, if you didn't mention the cast I never would have recognized Orlando Bloom and Mila Jovovich. And the dude in black on the left looks like Nicholas Cage. *shudder*
    • Harm
      You realize thats Madds Mikkelson right?

        I did indeed not realize that, which was pretty much my point.  Wait, are you sure we're talking about the same guy? I think the one with the eyepatch on the left could be Mikkelson, not the one in black with the rapier.
  • Mr. Teeny
    Paul W.S. Anderson aka Uwe Boll's illegitimate offspring. So big time pass on this movie.
  • Raj
    And here I thought Green Lantern's posters were bad.

    Glorious wasn't the G word I had in mind to describe this poster.
  • Devilfun
    If those strapping handsome men don't give you a hard on then you are not straight.  :)

    What a fantastic piece of shit that poster is. And furthermore, Alex - your vocabulary continues to amuse me. Gloriously adventuresome? You sound like a radio advertisement for a cruise-liner in the 1950s. 
    • Well, what's a good choice of adjectives to use for this instead? Besides anything derogatory, as I don't really hate this poster like everyone else seems to.
      • Lebowski
        non-derogatory? heh, as a hater I don't get in to that too much. But I get the adventuresome part, it's just very clunky - there are a lot of syllables in those two words, and glorious is very strong. I think maybe "classically adventuresome" would have been better - considering the posters obvious similarity to the old hand drawn ones of the past. But adventuresome is tricky isn't it? I probably would have settled on something like "First classic and adventure rich poster for.." it's a bit longer, but flows better I think.

    Wait wait, does Lerman have tight leather pants on? Didnt realize they had that in the 18th century of whenever this POS takes place. Thanks for showing this Alex so I know to steer very clear of it.
  • Jwb3
    i probably would've seen the movie cuz of the novel story plot and cuz of the theme....until that kid center of the poster was in it. 
  • Ryderup
    Haha. Photoshop cheap. I rather have the super8 poster.
  • Normanfannie
    LOL, I thought that was Michael Cera front and center. Whatta horrible poster...
    • Ryderup
      Hehe, looks a bit like a cross between Jason Mewes and Justin Bieber too.
  • Josh
    why the heck is orlando bloom on there twice?
  • The brownish color is more apt for Westerns IMO..
  • Labtec
    Looks like crap. I can't take anything Anderson does seriously. I can't be certain but I think mila has a clause in her marriage contract that forces Anderson to cast her in all of his films. Also the fact that the Percy Jackson kid is cast as dartanian kills all credibility to this film whatsover.
  • Nate
    Besides the top of Orlando's hair being chopped off, the poster is not that bad. I've seen a lot worse. You guys are just being way too harsh, and stop it with the "too Photoshop" line, every poster now is photoshopped one way or the other. On another note, seeing the trailer for this... I do think that Mila is miscast in this though. She just looked like Alice with a gown on doing all those fancy fight moves like in the RE movies.
  • Anonymous
    So are all the leading ladies in Paul's movies = Milla?
  • I love sword-fighting movies, so I'll probably see this. In 2D of course. That being said, I do NOT watch Uwe Boll movies and that 3 Musketeers movie that starred Chris O'Donnell, Charlie Sheen, and Keifer Sutherland was utter crap (nothing against O'Donnell or Sutherland). 
  • And the poster? Been there, done that: i.e. Boring!
  • Harm
    I'll admit I love The Three Musketeers story - I keep watching these movies.  Even the Piece of Shit The Musketeer that came out in the early 2000's.  That said I love Ray Stevenson, Madds Mikkelson and Christoph Waltz so I know I'll check it out.

    they look more like the three must-be-queers.
