'The Three Musketeers': It's one for all and all for explosions

Alexandre Dumas was a master of French literature, a prolific author who penned at least two monumental classics, and one of the most influential individuals of mixed-raced ancestry of his time. Paul W.S. Anderson directed Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil. It’s a match made in heaven! There has already been approximately one adaptation of The Three Musketeers for each of the book’s ~700 pages – and that’s not even including Wishbone – but Anderson clearly hopes to bring his own personal action-packed, people-sliding-on-their-knees-and-ducking-backwards-while-shooting style of filmmaking to the classic tale of Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and d’Artagnan. Orlando Bloom, Anderson’s wife Milla Jovovich, and Matthew Macfadyen all star, while Christoph Waltz continues his unending streak of villainy as Cardinal Richelieu. Check it out below:

What do you think? Are you excited for a blockbuster version of the classic tale, or is this targeted towards the people who would mispronounce Dumas just for a cheap laugh? (Like me.)
