Oh your no fun!  This sounds quite interesting and fun, though we need a better director to make this great.

The trailers look like a spoof of modern action movie cliches (like the slow motion slide under the bullets, and the action female).  It really looks bad.

This was filmed in my neighborhood last year September/October. It was nice to see familiar, local places in the trailer. I won't be watching this at the theater but I will check it out once it hits Blu-ray.

I'm a sucker for any interpretation of the Three Musketeers and Milla is my girl so I'm planning on seeing this.

There's a growing trend of movies that take a classic story and change it to the point of being completely irrelevant. No thank you.

I think I'll skip this one.

I've seen the . . . version,
1939
1948
1973
1993
and I enjoyed them all. But, the book by Dumas, pere, I just find it totally unreadable. And that is not the only French novel, where I enjoyed all the film versions, but could never get into the book. Hugo's "Les Miserables" is the same way. But there I have seen five different film versions of it, and I enjoyed them all, but I just found the book to be totally unreadable.

I think the only French novelist I truly enjoy is Jules Verne, even though his novels are both hit and miss with me.

"Around the World in Eighty Days." Totally enjoyable. Read it many times.
"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." So-so. The book is readable, but the 1954 film is more enjoyable.
"Journey to the Center of the Earth." Totally unreadable. Little if anything seems to happen.
All of these, of course, having been made into films. Sometimes multiple times.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw a trailer for it. Although I like the general story....I actually liked the campy version with Charlie Sheen and Keifer Sutherland....this version looks like a waste of my time. BTW....my main draw for that campy one was Tim Curry.

Why do they call them musketeers when they're always fighting with swords?

I don't know whether any of the film versions go into it, but the King's Musketeers were trained to fire and fight with muskets. Then  fight with swords only when the enemy got close enough to use swords. 

And when I saw "Real Steel," which was more enjoyable than I thought it'd be, I saw the trailer for "Three Musketeers." And oh God, it was worst than I expected. If I had any doubts about not seeing it, then the trailer killed off those doubts.

I've seen on a couple of movie sites where they said that the W.S. in Paul W.S. Anderson's name stands for "What Script".

So what does the "M" in "M. Night Shyalaman stand for then? ;)
Anyhow, can't wait to not see this.

I don't plan on seeing this. The strange thing is I might have given it a chance if it wasn't called The Three Musketeers. 

When Disney released their version of Hunchback of Notre Dame and I saw it had colorful songs and quirky sidekicks, I made a conscience effort not to see the movie for as long as I could.  Being only somewhat familiar with the source material, I knew it couldn't be like the cartoon Disney was putting out and the movie would get a lot wrong. On a positive note, that decision not to see it made me get the original novel from the library an read it for myself.

What does this have to due with the Three Musketeers. Its the same situation. An even more blatant changing of the source material. If they had said that this was some original property merely set during the time of musketeers, I might have seen it hoping for a steampunk action film with some interesting (if not cliche by this point) visuals.

I actually thought this film was going to be interesting and possibly fun and exciting.

...until I saw Paul WS Anderson's name used.   Hatred  Yeah, I'll be skipping this.
