The first poster for Resident Evil and Death Race director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s The Three Musketeers has been released online by Summit Entertainment.
As you’ll be able to tell, the poster isn’t the most eventful you’ll ever see. Then again, the first poster released rarely is all that exciting. Even so, those eager to see how the movie turns out will be happy to take a little peek at the first official release.
There is a lot of concern for the movie, whether it be skepticism toward Anderson’s abilities or the dreaded 3D it will be bathed in, but it’s not all gloomy. As we’ve said, the movie presents a great cast, and they’re sure to try and help it give it a good run. That paired with the fact that some of Anderson’s films, though not heading toward an Oscar win anytime soon, can be considered a lot of fun gives us just a little bit of hope.

A few new images from the set of Paul W.S. Anderson‘s new adaptation of The Three Musketeers have shown up online.
The pictures show Mads Mikkelsen (King Arthur, Casino Royale) as Rochefort, and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief star and former Spider-Man candidate Logan Lerman as the lead, D’Artagnan. It’s not the best peek at Lerman, but as you’ll see, Mikkelsen looks pretty awesome.
We first heard about the movie last September when it was announced that Anderson would be directing his own 3D adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas story.
Be sure to continue on and check out some of the first images of the new Three Musketeers now!
Now comes word that Bloom has indeed accepted the offer and will be in the film. The actor will actually play a villain in the very smooth Duke of Buckingham, who intensely-rivals the Musketeers and their rebellious ways.
Also new to the cast is James Corden (Planet 51, Gulliver’s Travels), who will be playing a servant named Planchet.
Now THIS is some casting news. Instead of announcing one name at a time, almost all of the cast for Paul W.S. Anderson‘s new take on The Three Musketeers has been revealed all in one epic explosion of names.
The movie is one of two Musketeer films currently being made (the other being directed by Doug Liman for Warner Brothers), and though Anderson is not always beloved by movie fans, this cast will make it really difficult not to be excited about.
The role of D’Artagnan, a man with dreams of becoming a Musketeer, but who finds much trouble on his road to achieving this goal, will be played by Logan Lerman. Lerman is a budding star who recently appeared as Percy in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and was also a candidate for the role of Peter Parker in Sony’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise.
The Daily Mail has obtained a few great paparazzi photographs from the set of Ridley Scott‘s epic retelling of Robin Hood. The shots show a legion of King John’s men crossing a stone bridge in what looks like some sort of attack or battle. No stars, and not the highest of quality shots, but just looking at them, you can easily tell that we’re in for a treat when this movie is finished.
As we all know, the movie tells the classic tale of Robin Hood, but this time around, it will be handled much more realistically. No word exactly on what to expect, but assume this adventure will have a real Kingdom of Heaven feel and look to it, but with the legendary Robin of Loxley as the center piece.
The film is currently shooting in the U.K. and is set for a released on May 14, 2010.
