Sci-fi musketeers from the Wild Wild West?
This weekend the first trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers 3D was released upon the masses and while this story has been thrown on the silver screen countless of times Anderson tries to pop up the story by throwing in some super slow mo, his wife Mila and surprisingly a slew of steam punk gadgets and machinery.
Personally I'm all for spicing up this story with some fresh ideas and it's clear that Anderson and Co are not taking the material all to seriously, hopefully making a fun ride. But seeing how the last Resident Evil was just a god awful mess has me worried that Anderson has more interest in showing his gorgeous wife in slow motion that to actually tell a good story. Plus the steam punk aspect has me thinking of The Wild Wild West, and nobody wants to repeat that debacle.
I'm not in team "Hate Anderson and everything he does" so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he isn't trying so hard to be awesome and failing miserably as he did with RE4.
Anyways watch cool people slice and dice in the trailer below.

This guy has never lived up to the promise that EVENT HORIZON held. This looks like the awful VAN HELSING film more than anything...

mannn.... i don't know... That is one GREAT ensemble cast. Til Schweiger, Mads Mikkelson (as Rochefort, nonetheless), Christoph Waltz, Matthew MacFadyen... And i'm interested in seeing Orlando Bloom and Milla Jovovich as straight up villains.

To date, i don't think any film has captured the magic or feel of the book. This one seems to understand that it might never happen and just WENT with it.

and i too, feel that Event Horizon is still his best piece of work.
