Yes a remake for The Three Musketeers is getting ready to hit theaters this upcoming October and for the life of me I just dont get it. I loved the originals but for whatever reason Hollywood keeps wanting to remake this movie over and over to cash in on the latest craze.
This latest installment of the Three Musketeers features over the top action, silly one liners and you guessed it 3d. Perhaps its just to early and I need to drink more of my morning java but this trailer did not impress me at all.
Like most of Paul WS Anderson’s films this one stars his wife Model and Resident Evil hottie Milla Jovovich who doesnt share my doubts on the quality and need for this film. In an interview with Collider.com she revealed that its not your parents Three Musketeers;
“We’ve been doing a lot of training for it. A lot of hair and costume tests and they’ve already started filming. It’s just going to look amazing, doing stunt training in those corsets and skirts – which adds a whole new dimension to stunt work which I’ve done before! I thought, ‘Wow, doing wire work and stunt work was hard’, but I’d never tried doing it 17th century style.
We’re breaking new ground. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a woman in a corset doing this kind of high-wire work before. It could be interesting. It’s not your parents’ Three Musketeers.”
Watch the trailer below and decide for yourself.
