The Three Musketeers - coming in October!

Apparently the first trailer for the new Three Musketeers film broke today. I am SO ridiculously excited about this. Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham, Matthew Macfadyen as Athos, MADS MIKKELSON as Rochefort?! Yes, please. Also...it will be very interesting to see how Logan Lerman does in the role of D'Artagnan, since his last film appearance was as Percy Jackson.

It's like Pirates of the Caribbean, but in the French Court!

I do like Orlando Bloom and Matthew Macfadyen, but I can't seem to get into the whole "Three Musketeers" story. I bought the Gene Kelly version a while back (just for Gene Kelly), and I couldn't remember who was who or who was good/bad, etc. I guess I need to become more familiar with the story. :)

@heidenkind - HAHAHA!!! You are SO right! I may have to quote you on that description... :)

@Kristin - I love the Gene Kelly version of The Three Musketeers! It's great technicolor fun. :) Though I have to confess that (thus far) my favorite film version is from 1993 with Chris O'Donnell as D'Artagnan and Keifer Sutherland as Athos. Have you ever read the novel? It's one of my all time favorite classics. NONE of the movies are what you'd call perfect adaptations, but the fun adventure story essence of the novel translates to both of those films IMO. :)

@Renee Ann - Very happy with the look of this so far... :)

@Lori - I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

This looks really cool!! And I love Matthew Macfadyen's voice almost as much as I love Richard Armitage's - I said, almost! ;)

Thanks for once again letting me know about a movie I had no idea was coming out! :)

Blessings,
Amanda

@Amanda - Oh, I am right there with you...Matthew M.'s voice is SO swoonworthy. :) You're welcome for the heads up!
