The Three Musketeers: the first images of the film are here (and not everything is … –

The new adaptation of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas by Martin Bourboulon has unveiled a first glimpse of the five-star cast in costume… And we have some doubts. Whether we fondly remember The Man in the Iron Mask directed by Randall Wallace in 1998, or cringe at the gentle carnage of Paul WS Anderson, which even his respectable cast could not save, The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas will be passed under many feathers and in front of many cameras. It would seem, however, that the cinema is not yet ready to lay down the muskets or the rapiers of our noble heroes, who are also returning to the Gironde of their native hexagon. After having maintained the mystery since the announcement of its five-star casting last February, the Pathé studios, which stimulated this new adaptation made in France, had since been careful not to communicate more. Directed by Martin Bourboulon, (the filmmaker of the recent biopic Eiffel) the upcoming diptych entitled The Three Musketeers Part 1: “D’Artagnan” and The Three Musketeers – Milady has since unveiled in a first preview on the cover of Premiere: Le mischievous look, the feather firmly attached to the hat, the high boots, the leather on the shoulders, and more rimmel under the eyes or jewels on the belt than Jack Sparrow, the future interpreters of Athos (Vincent Cassel), Porthos ( Pio Marmaï), Aramis (Romain Duris) and D’Artagnan (François Civil) proudly show off their costumes of light. As for Eva Green, who will play the formidable enemy of the Musketeers, Milady de Winter, to whom the second part is devoted, this one benefits from her own poster that she naturally invests with her magnetic charisma. If Vincent Cassel’s dry straw wig and false mustache are enough to raise some inquisitive eyebrows, the costumes nevertheless seem to have been designed far from the postmodernist and uninhibited reinterpretations from which Anderson’s adaptation suffered, for example, and in fact justify the honorable budget of some 60 million euros which generously benefits the diptych. At least, we hope so. Resid’Artagnan Preview with an aesthetic oscillating dangerously between the pirate film and the western (because, who would have believed it, Pirates of the Caribbean and Once upon a time in the West can rub shoulders), the musketeers here resemble more to a pretty skewer of bandits ready to plunder the louis d’or of the first passer-by than to gentlemen officiating for the royal cavalry. Enough to wait and maintain the mystery by April 5, 2023, the announced release date of the first opus of this next great show experience, which will be followed by The Three Musketeers – Milady on December 13 of the same year.
