The Three Musketeers Trailer

All for one and one for all! Summit has debuted the first official trailer on Apple for Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers that was shot and is being released in 3D this fall. As we already know, our three four musketeers are: Matthew Macfadyen (Athos), Ray Stevenson (Porthos) and Luke Evans (Aramis) and Logan Lerman (D'Artagnan). This certainly doesn't look like what I expected, but at the same time, it looks quite stylized and action-packed. We all know what to expect from W.S. Anderson, which is not much, but this does look quite entertaining. I can't help but say I will probably see it. Check out the trailer below!

Watch the first trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers:

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?

    Hey guys, i know, lets film our movie in 3d for no reason! yeah! then people will come and see the 3d..... im first and let me be the first to say. Flop at the Box office.
    • Nocsyn
      3 musketeers...3...D's.
    • Carpio
      it's one of those trailers that could possibly be a good movie... but 90% flop status
  • shauna881
    look cool
  • Nat
    Big meh... rather see the 1973 version anytime.
  • xamel
    IN 3D (with cheesy CGI) =D
  • TenaciousV
    Agreed. Looks kinda meh. I prefer the 1993 version, or the man in the iron mask over some over-the-top, bullet-time laden, 3D gimmick flick.
  • Prestron
    I want more precisely choreographed sword fighting and less explosions. Anyone can make an explosion, so why should I be impressed?
  • Adrianna
    seems epic, cant wait has lots of my fav actors in it
  • Jericho
    eh...i think ill see it so i have the actual right to bash it
    • JL
      lol. I hate when you can tell something sucks, but if you say so, there are always a bunch of over-zealous snobs cursing at you for forming an opinion before the movie is out. But it's nice when you have seen it, and you can still rebut their nerdgasms with hard evidence.
  • Brandon
    1973 version is the best, but I am presently surprised. Looks like a fun movies. Still waiting for a version with just epic sword work and great acting, even topping the 70's version.
  • I don't really see anything wrong with it. I think the 3D is unnecessary but in the end won't affect much. I'll definitely see it before I dismiss it.
    • JL
      You'll really spend money on that? Even though it's a Paul W.S. Anderson film? You do know that automatically means it will suck, right? The guy sucks. It's fact. Look it up.

        ARE YOU KIDDING! This great man made the first Mortal Kombat movie! seriously though all his other work sucks. you're right this is going to blow
        • JL
          Are you kidding? Mortal Kombat sucked. Last time I saw that on tv, I couldn't help but laugh. It was stupid as hell.
          • Hlynurk
            Event Horizon did not suck but 1 good movie out of 10 might not be a good indicator for this one.
    • Redguy
      now this, will suck. "shot in 3D"...matrix crap...whatever. i had hopes, and now they're shattered. what the fuck. i don't like to start my day pissed but this trailer did the job fine. Not all w.s. anderson movies suck, how can you screw the musketeers..I DON'T KNOW but this is how.
  • JP
    You guys do know you can see it in 2D, right?
  • badeboom
    "You're a teacher?" - "Part-time."
    • Cdiddy848
      Now that was funny! -'I'll just lock myself in this fridge here.'
      • Richie G
        Ha, Yeah. Paul W.S. Anderson is truly the George Lucas of directing. Whats that?... they are? Both of them?....
  • Moif
    Looks like utter shit
  • Ryderup
    The Cuthroat Island of this decade?
    • vegasdanny
      Cutthroat Island is what i was thinking...with hints of Resident Evil!!
  • Joe
    Looks fun at the most. I always enjoyed The Musketeers story no matter who's telling it. Just a band of slick cool dudes with swords and European whit. I'll check it out.... in 2D like the good Lord intended.
  • Alex, my man! I love your site, but the amount of time you spent posting this sh:t of a 'trailer' could of actually been spent vomiting blood in a bag and posting it to W.S. Anderson himself... Why, oh why did 'Hollywood' get their hands on 3D...
    • Ha! So do you want me to stop posting trailers then? :)
      • Not at all! Just anything to do with Paul W.S. A******n....
  • Bubbab
    Paul W.S. has but one good film: EVENT HORIZON
  • felipe
    looks like Orlando Bloom's criteria to choose roles is to pick only characters with pointy goatees.
  • Lets take a perfectly good story, strip it of everything except the names and film it in 3D. Like it would kill a film crew (producer, writer, director) to actually hew closer to a story rather than their own "improvements".
  • tkaihea
    Too many people bashing the movie already. I'll give it a chance and watch it for what it is. A Paul Anderson movie. I must admit that even though no one seems to like his movies that every now and then I don't mind watching the mindless action. I think I might actually enjoy this one.
  • Anonymous
    so acid or shrooms on this one its got flying ships so either or should suffice to get the film 😛
  • Wow! This looks like crap. Give me the old Disney version any day.
    • Brandon
      But the old Disney version is crap...
      • Thats OK, but this is crap crap...
  • indyjack
    did michael bay direct this?
    • JL
      Close enough, he's a crappy director, too.
  • Mattfilm
    why 3D, why?
  • Vkatnite
    actually you can thank Andrew Davies...This seems to be more of a collaboration between Andersen's production company and his talent at screenwriting..the guy's track record is mostly English period pieces..teaming up to do a French period piece that crosses over into Jules Vernish/Victorian era pulp ala Sherlock Holmes or League of xtraOrdinary Gentlemen..Also they kinda stole the WB's initial idea and ran with it before the WB could sign a director..It'll be interesting to say the least..hopefully this will be better than anything Andersen has put out lately,if not-it'll be his "Wild,Wild West" or "LOEG"....
  • This could've been really cool if it didn't have Paul W.S. Anderson directing and 3D.
    • Thank God, someone just said the EXACT words I've been thinking since I've heard of this project.
  • Shige
    This is a fucking disgrace. Im not even talking about the 3D. Hollywood is destroying another classic.
    • JL
      No, Paul W.S. Anderson is destroying it.
  • Looks amazing don't know what you're all on about. Swordfights, explosions, Jovovovovovich, gonna be awesomes.
  • mochonko
    man in the iron mask is prol waayyy better any who..
  • happy camper
    ill just read the book.
  • TTumMM
    Didn't they tried this idea of Kung-Fu fighting musketeers once in 2001 The Musketeer,this isn't even a new idea!!
  • Jphodges
    Why is there a flamethrower and an automatic cannon and a flying ship? I don't get it.
    • Steve
      It was looking ok until they showed those....:(
  • Anonymous
    No. I'll watch the Keifer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, and Chris O'Donnell one.
  • Leeloo Dallas Multipass
    Christoph Waltz, huh? Must be the old, "trick a fantastic actor fresh to Hollywood into your movie before he realizes you're horrible reputation as a director" move. Nice one, Paul. Nice one. I could just see Christoph with his accent, after watching a rough cut of the movie, "But I thought he directed There Will Be Blood?"
    • JL
      lol. Epic mixup.
  • Will judge after watching on DVD, too much good coming in theaters to put down on this...and I hate 3D. I can wait.
  • outofnormal
    This is far from being based on the Dumas novel as Robert Downy Jr's film was based on the books by Arthur Conan Doyle. The characters have the same names and that's about it. Not that I'm saying that it couldn't a really fun action flick, but don't call it what it's not. I hate it when they play with the plot. Write your own damn story it your going to do that. You know, while we're at it, I think Jane Eyre should be a kung fu master and kick some crazy lady ass. I'd pay to see that. Or Elizabeth Bennet pulls out a shotgun and blows a hole in Billingsly for breaking her sister's heart! Now we're talking!
    • Chazzy
      Did you read any of the Sherlock Holmes stories?
      • outofnormal
        Several but not all. I don't the remember the one where Sherlock goes in for boxing, or fights a giant man with a hammer. Can you point that one out?
  • i am legend
    and i thought the conan teaser was bad but this is god awful! ray stevenson tho needs mainstream acting... fingers crossed this helps him.
  • Kal-el
  • Agguy7
    Why is Paul W.S Anderson still allowed to direct movies? Please explain this to me. Do studios just not care about a movie being good?
  • ClerksFan
    I would rather have my testicles spread out like a wafer and then have them covered in a layer of honey and then have wasps come and sting me and then have them covered in another layer of vinegar and then have it worn as a swimming cap by a Nazi. I'd rather have that than what this film.
  • Tim
    this doesn't look too horrible. i'd rather they make it multiple movies and stick with the actual plot of the book, but i highly doubt hollywood will ever really do that.
  • Movie was shot in several towns where I'm living (somewhere in Germany). I'm curious how much you can see of that in the movie.
  • Vanagwathiel
    Disney version FTW! No not Keifer Sutherland. Mickey, Donald and Goofy!
  • Alex C.
    I laughed. Oh, I laughed (wipes a tear). And now I'm going to watch Richard Lester's "3 Musketeers" (1973). Again. Respect.
  • Anonymous
    "Pirates of the European."
  • cinemabandit Oliver Reed's Athos will never be bettered. The 1973 movie is the standard.
  • equustel
    I will see it for Matthew Macfadyen.
  • Mila
    You guys are overreacting. seriously. It might be funny. Not all movies are made to be taken seriously, sometimes they are just for fun. And this one seems like that: fun and probably that's all. But I'll still keep my head open and hope to be surprised. Though I'm not watching it 3D. Not like I have that kind of money to spend on movies...
