Watch: First Trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's 'The Three Musketeers'

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:
You can watch The Three Musketeers trailer in High Definition on Apple
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?

Big meh... rather see the 1973 version anytime.
Nat on Mar 25, 2011
IN 3D (with cheesy CGI) =D
xamel on Mar 25, 2011
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.
TenaciousV on Mar 25, 2011
I want more precisely choreographed sword fighting and less explosions. Anyone can make an explosion, so why should I be impressed?
Prestron on Mar 25, 2011
seems epic, cant wait has lots of my fav actors in it
Adrianna on Mar 25, 2011
eh...i think ill see it so i have the actual right to bash it
Jericho on Mar 25, 2011
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.
JL on Mar 25, 2011
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.
Brandon on Mar 25, 2011
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.
Erika Payne on Mar 25, 2011
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.
JL on Mar 25, 2011
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
Anonymous on Mar 26, 2011
Are you kidding? Mortal Kombat sucked. Last time I saw that on tv, I couldn't help but laugh. It was stupid as hell.
JL on Mar 26, 2011
Event Horizon did not suck but 1 good movie out of 10 might not be a good indicator for this one.
Hlynurk on Mar 26, 2011
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.
Redguy on Mar 26, 2011
You guys do know you can see it in 2D, right?

Now that was funny! -'I'll just lock myself in this fridge here.'
Cdiddy848 on Mar 25, 2011
Ha, Yeah. Paul W.S. Anderson is truly the George Lucas of directing. Whats that?... they are? Both of them?....
Richie G on Mar 28, 2011
Looks like utter shit
Moif on Mar 25, 2011
The Cuthroat Island of this decade?
Ryderup on Mar 25, 2011
Cutthroat Island is what i was thinking...with hints of Resident Evil!!
vegasdanny on Mar 26, 2011
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.
Joe on Mar 25, 2011
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...
Tyler Danger on Mar 25, 2011
Not at all! Just anything to do with Paul W.S. A******n....
Tyler Danger on Mar 26, 2011
Paul W.S. has but one good film: EVENT HORIZON
Bubbab on Mar 25, 2011
looks like Orlando Bloom's criteria to choose roles is to pick only characters with pointy goatees.
felipe on Mar 25, 2011
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".
Angrybell on Mar 25, 2011
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.
tkaihea on Mar 26, 2011
so acid or shrooms on this one its got flying ships so either or should suffice to get the film 😛
Anonymous on Mar 26, 2011
Wow! This looks like crap. Give me the old Disney version any day.
Andy Ortega on Mar 26, 2011
But the old Disney version is crap...
Brandon on Mar 26, 2011
Thats OK, but this is crap crap...
sakyo on Mar 26, 2011
did michael bay direct this?
indyjack on Mar 26, 2011
Close enough, he's a crappy director, too.
JL on Mar 27, 2011
why 3D, why?
Mattfilm on Mar 26, 2011
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"....
Vkatnite on Mar 26, 2011
This could've been really cool if it didn't have Paul W.S. Anderson directing and 3D.
M.K. Nielsen on Mar 26, 2011
Thank God, someone just said the EXACT words I've been thinking since I've heard of this project.
Tyler Danger on Mar 26, 2011
This is a fucking disgrace. Im not even talking about the 3D. Hollywood is destroying another classic.
Shige on Mar 26, 2011
No, Paul W.S. Anderson is destroying it.
JL on Mar 27, 2011
Looks amazing don't know what you're all on about. Swordfights, explosions, Jovovovovovich, gonna be awesomes.
Crapola on Mar 26, 2011
man in the iron mask is prol waayyy better any who..
mochonko on Mar 26, 2011
ill just read the book.
happy camper on Mar 26, 2011
Didn't they tried this idea of Kung-Fu fighting musketeers once in 2001 The Musketeer,this isn't even a new idea!!
TTumMM on Mar 26, 2011
Why is there a flamethrower and an automatic cannon and a flying ship? I don't get it.
Jphodges on Mar 26, 2011
It was looking ok until they showed those....:(
Steve on Mar 27, 2011
No. I'll watch the Keifer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, and Chris O'Donnell one.
Anonymous on Mar 27, 2011
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?"
Leeloo Dallas Multipass on Mar 27, 2011
lol. Epic mixup.
JL on Mar 27, 2011
Will judge after watching on DVD, too much good coming in theaters to put down on this...and I hate 3D. I can wait.
PyroDark on Mar 27, 2011
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!
outofnormal on Mar 27, 2011
Did you read any of the Sherlock Holmes stories?
Chazzy on Mar 28, 2011
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?
outofnormal on Mar 28, 2011
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 on Mar 27, 2011
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?
Agguy7 on Mar 27, 2011
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.
ClerksFan on Mar 27, 2011
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.
Tim on Mar 27, 2011
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.
Kamuro on Mar 27, 2011
Disney version FTW! No not Keifer Sutherland. Mickey, Donald and Goofy!
Vanagwathiel on Mar 28, 2011
I laughed. Oh, I laughed (wipes a tear). And now I'm going to watch Richard Lester's "3 Musketeers" (1973). Again. Respect.
Alex C. on Mar 28, 2011
"Pirates of the European."
Anonymous on Mar 28, 2011
Ummmmmmmm...............no. Oliver Reed's Athos will never be bettered. The 1973 movie is the standard.
cinemabandit on Mar 29, 2011
I will see it for Matthew Macfadyen.
equustel on Mar 30, 2011
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...
