Watch The Explosive First Trailer For The Three Musketeers

Although I was aware of the upcoming 3D adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, primarily because of its eclectic cast — including Milla Jovovich, Ray Stevenson, Christoph Waltz, Orlando Bloom and a long-haired Logan Lerman — I guess I didn’t realize until today it was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. That’s when Apple premiered the trailer, which has Anderson’s fingerprints all over it.

If you’re a fan of Anderson’s other films — Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator, etc. — this may be the movie for you. If you’re a fan of the classic Three Musketeers, you may want to back away slowly. Judging from this trailer, Anderson’s version is a steampunkish mash-up of Resident Evil (go figure!), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and, I don’t know, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. Come to think of it, it reminds me a lot of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen … which probably isn’t a good sign.

In any case, you can watch the trailer below, or visit Apple to view it in high definition. The Three Musketeers opens in 3D on Oct. 14.

Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Summit Entertainment:

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas’ story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D.

The Three Musketeers stars Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelson, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom and Christoph Waltz.

    I remember the last time they re-imagined Three Musketeers and we got that awful spectacle “The Musketeer.”

    Riding on the shirttails for Sherlock Holmes a bit here. I’d still give it a go. Has to be better then the version that had Charlie Sheen. Although my fave Musketeers movie was the Man in the Iron Mask.
