The Three Musketeers has probably felt a bit left out this week, with all the attention being given to Bats, Spiders and Men of X, so the production has released two brand-new pics showng ye oldesword-slinging heroes in action.
While Paul W.S. Anderson’s first foray into 3D (the lamentable Resident Evil: Afterlife ) failed to quicken many pulses, his next stab at extra-dimensiony filmmaking will hopefully be more Dumas than Dumbass.
The Brit director’s take on The Three Musketeers finds former the Percy Jackson , Logan Lerman, playing the dashing D’Artagnan.
He joins forces with the titular trio - Porthos (Ray Stevenson), Athos (Matthew Macfadyen) and Aramis (Luke Evans) - to fight the forces of badness (embodied here by Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz and Milla Jovovich) - all in the glorious third dimension.
Following on from a bunch of good-quality set photos released online a few months ago, today we’ve been given our first proper peek at the ‘all-for-one’ foursome in action.
Thankfully, the spirit of Alexandre Dumas’ tale of derring-do seems to be alive and slashing with costumes, weaponry and flowing hair (facial and otherwise) looking suitably classy.
Considering the director’s shaky pedigree, we’ve got surprisingly high hopes for this.
