Watch The ‘Three Musketeers’ Trailer Make a Fool of Itself

By  · Published on June 28th, 2011

Ambitious. Bold. Serious. Groundbreaking.

None of these words can be sanely used to describe the vibe emanating from the trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson’s “adaptation” of The Three Musketeers. This a W.S. Anderson picture through and through. This trailer does a fantastic job at selling a future camp classic in the making, and I don’t even mean that in an ironic way, either.

Could this trailer be more self-aware? For instance, just look at Orlando Bloom. He’s not just taking a fat paycheck with this gig, but rather taking a chance to go completely bonkers. His mustache and astonishingly goofy haircut alone chews up the scenery in this preview. I can’t wait to see an over the top Bloom playoff of a very serious Christoph Waltz.

The Three Musketeers opens in theaters on October 14th.
