Engarde! The Three Musketeers trailer is here
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
All for one, and one for all!
We all had our childhood favorites growing up. Superman. Spider-Man, Batman - all likely contenders for our youthful admiration, despite lacking the accessibility - and believability - that favorites such as Fireman Sam and Postman Pat possessed. On hindsight, my childhood didn't fare too badly, but with role models that included a fireman and a postman, a career fighting crime seemed unlikely.
However, there was always one group of well-documented, cultured individuals that fared well through the ages - The Three Musketeers. Even as dogs (please see Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds), the concept and idea behind this sword-swindling trio was a tempting one, and their iconic status was well-deserved. Fighting for justice, the three possessed a number of impressive qualities that have stood up well through many film representations, remakes and re-interpretations. The core story, of a group of swashbuckling defenders of the Queen, embodied friendship, justice, and most of all, adventure for a legion of young dreamers. The latest stars Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) as D'Artagnan, Matthew Macfayden, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson as the Musketeers, and Orlando Bloom and Milla Jovovich as the most beautiful villains ever filmed; not to mention the amazing Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds) as the evil Cardinal Richlieu.
The Three Musketeers is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) and is due to hit theaters this October. Check out the trailer below:
Matthew Macfadyen’s portentous yet awesome voiceover (“We are surrounded by enemies. War will engulf the entire continent. Only we can prevent the coming apocalypse.”) reflects the intense, actiony feel of the trailer, which is packed with all kinds of action, stunts, and general coolness. There’s a flamethrower, some kind of machine gun, and some kind of ninja popping up from underwater and drawing what look like two grappling hook guns. The trailer also features plenty of characters crossing swords, dodging projectiles, jumping away from explosions, and jumping off buildings, all in slow motion. In summary: it looks awesome.
