Second Trailer for The Three Musketeers Takes the Fight to the Skies
06.29.11 by Ryan
Paul W.S. Anderson is probably best known for his involvement in the Resident Evil franchise, either as a writer, producer, director, or various combinations of all three, but Anderson's latest has nothing to do with the Umbrella Corporation or the undead. Instead, it's an adaptation of author Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers.
The first trailer for the movie was released in March and showed that, as one might suspect about a 3-D adaptation of a classic novel set in 17th-century France, this isn't going to be your typical Three Musketeers. The second trailer looks to fulfill Anderson's promise of a faithful adaptation, starting with D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) meeting up with the Three Musketeers — Aramis (Matthew Macfayden), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Athos (Luke Evans) — and their banding together to bring down the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). Only in Anderson's version, they fight him in zeppelin-sailing ship hybrids.
The Three Musketeers co-stars Milla Jovovich as Milady de Winter, Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham, and Mads Mikkelsen as Rochefort. The movie was adapted by Anderson and Andrew Davies (Bridget Jones's Diary).
