Trailer Tuesday: The Three Musketeers
After my tardiness last week, here's an action packed new trailer for the upcoming The Three Musketeers, to make up for it. Bring on the 17th century (I think) sword-fighting frenzy:
"The hot-headed young D'Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war." - Plot Description
You know where to click for HD, I presume. Hint: It's about a fingers length above. Unless you are Liam Redford. In which case it is half that.
A B-B-Break it down:
0:10 - Ooh, France.
0:14 - Bad-ass masked guy with dual swords emerges from water all stealthy like.
0:16 - The he destroys some guys with the swords. Turns out they got crossbow bolts in... Sweet.
0:20 - Cloaked dude making a splash with boat driver.
0:22 - First look at the fabled three. From let to right: Aramis (Luke Evans), Athos (Matthew MacFadyen) and Porthos (Ray Stevenson).
0:24 - The young musky-wannabe, D'Artagnan (Logan Lermen).
0:25-0:27 - Each Musketeer has an individual shot, in the same order as above.
0:31 - Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) as the films chief antagonist, Milady de Winter.
0:33 - Ooh, pretty!
0:37 - Cloaked leap of faith.
0:41 - Sword-fighting on a hill.
0:44 - Sword-fighting in a courtyard.
0:46 - Rows of black and red guards.
0:47 - Goddess-like figure atop a big building. No idea if this peron is of importance.
0:47 - Ah crap, she fell...
0:48 - Orlando Bloom, looking slightly sinister as the Duke of Buckingham. Nice guns.
0:49 - Chain-fighting in a cell.
0:51 - Awesome slow-mo sword clash with Milady de Winter.
1:07 - And he's wearing cuffs. Must get imprisoned at some point.
1:11 - 4 v 40. Sounds like a fair fight considering all the sword-fighting these guys do.
1:12-1:16 - And that consequent battle.
1:20 - And it's in 3D, if you hadn't noticed the other hints dropped.
Well, we'll have to wait until October to see if this turns out to be any good. The cast is pretty decent with some fairly known actors. No-one too big I don't think, but enough "where have I seen them before?" actors to constitute a look in. And look at it this way; It's got to be better than the 1993 Charlie Sheen version, right? And yes, I am deadly serious about that. On a side note, this trailer reminded me a lot of Assassin's Creed 2. See you next week, Trailer-Goers.
