Summit Entertainment ratchets up the steampunk elements, and the general absurdity, in the second trailer for The Three Musketeers, director Paul W.S. Anderson’s very loose adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic adventure novel. In a bit of historical revisionism rivaling that of certain politicians, 17th-century Paris is lousy with airships, acrobatic assassins and flame-throwing cannons. It’s also much cleaner than you might expect.
The new trailer comes just as the studio has announced it’s moving the 3D film’s opening back one week, from Oct. 14 to Oct. 21, pitting it against Paramount Pictures’ Paranormal Activity 3.
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.
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.
