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*

You realize thats Madds Mikkelson right?

Harm on Jun 9, 2011


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.

Paul W.S. Anderson aka Uwe Boll's illegitimate offspring. So big time pass on this movie.

And here I thought Green Lantern's posters were bad.

Glorious wasn't the G word I had in mind to describe this poster.

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. 

Lebowski on Jun 9, 2011


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.

Alex Billington on Jun 9, 2011


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.

Lebowski on Jun 10, 2011


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.

Cody W. on Jun 9, 2011


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. 

Jwb3 on Jun 9, 2011


Haha. Photoshop cheap. I rather have the super8 poster.

Ryderup on Jun 9, 2011


LOL, I thought that was Michael Cera front and center. Whatta horrible poster...

Normanfannie on Jun 9, 2011


Hehe, looks a bit like a cross between Jason Mewes and Justin Bieber too.

Ryderup on Jun 9, 2011


why the heck is orlando bloom on there twice?

Josh on Jun 9, 2011


The brownish color is more apt for Westerns IMO..

Davide Coppola on Jun 9, 2011


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.

Labtec on Jun 9, 2011


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.

Nate on Jun 9, 2011


So are all the leading ladies in Paul's movies = Milla?

Anonymous on Jun 9, 2011


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). 

woodge on Jun 9, 2011


And the poster? Been there, done that: i.e. Boring!

woodge on Jun 9, 2011


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. 

Harm on Jun 9, 2011


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