It's hard to argue that we actually need another movie about the THree Musketeers-- the swashbuckling French heroes have been the subject of countless films over the decades-- but with the new one coming from Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson, we at least know we're in for something different. And as you can see in the film's first trailer that debuted today at Apple, the movie looks exactly like what you'd expect when Anderson's insane penchant for action meets a costume drama. Watch it below and see what I mean.

The movies stars Anderson's wife (and Resident Evil heroine) Milla Jovovich, who isn't a Musketeer but gets some intriguing screen time, along with Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen and Ray Stevenson as the titular heroes. The supporting cast gets even more interesting from there-- Inglourious Basterds veterans Christoph Waltz and Til Schweiger pop up, along with Orlando Bloom and the suddenly-everywhere Juno Temple, who gets one of the trailer's few lines of dialogue. It's hard to tell exactly what the plot involves-- something about saving the world, fighting off enemies, blah blah blah-- but I think the entire point of the trailer is to make you not care. This movie is going to be pretty and possibly badass, which is all you really need to know. The Three Musketeers-- which, as the trailer won't let you forget, was shot in 3D-- hits theaters October 14 this year.
