'Three Musketeers' Trailer: Yeah, That's a Paul W. S. Anderson Three Musketeer

March 25, 2011


Fresh off directing his wife in a Resident Evil movie for the second non-consecutive time, Paul W. S. Anderson has returned with a new film that isn't a video game adaptation yet somehow still manages to squeeze in at least one shot of Milla Jovovich doing an awesome slow-motion move down a perilous corridor: a new take on The Three Musketeers--IN 3-D. Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, and Luke Evans play the title trio this time, while a wigged Percy Jackson plays young D'Artagnan, Orlando Bloom shows up as Duke of Buckingham, Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen plays another guy with an effed up eye, and Christoph Waltz plays Cardinal Richelieu, continuing the great Oscar tradition of completely squandering all Best Supporting Actor cred as quickly as possible. How long until Das Radio, Waltz?

I like that he has a couple tasteful, artistic shots mixed in there with the flame guns and dudes diving from huge CGI fireballs. Balance.
