The Three Musketeers opens today in North American theaters, and star Milla Jovovich is loudly voicing her displeasure with the film’s marketing campaign. She took to Twitter earlier today to speak out against Summit Entertainment, the film’s US distributor, first in an accusation that drew a comparison between the campaign for Musketeers and the upcoming Twilight fourquel: “Are ‘summit’ promoting it as a family adventure movie? Or are they resting on their laurels from ‘twilight’ n making no effort? Let me know!”
She continued about one hour later: “I think ‘summit’ hve swept ‘3 Musketeers’, a grt family adventure film, under the rug in the US. Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU ‘SUMMIT’.” It’s an undeniably personal battle for Jovovich: The film was directed by her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson.
A representative for Summit had no comment at this time. The film currently holds a bleak 38 score on Metacritic.
