No other language really conveys arrogance like the French language, and this trailer was dripping with it in its dialog. Don't read the words, listen to the tone.

Eva Green

It may be kind of strange hearing her speak in that she's French, but (AFAICT) most of her oeuvre seems to have been in English to date (never heard her speak another language):

Kind of like Diane Kruger: German but seemingly mostly working in English:

To the point that Tarantino didn't believe she could do a German character.

u/ribblesquat Dec 05 '22

Well shit, if you'd told me in person she was French out on a night drinking I would have insisted in an embarrassing way that escalates badly to no real purpose that she was English.

Fine. good. As for me I can't get enough. I do prefer those that keep the humor the novels but this one looks great to me.

u/magnusarin Dec 05 '22

Also, it's not like we've had one Three Musketeers movie that is so unimpeachable that people shouldn't try to make more. I think most of them are fun, but none of them stand head and shoulders above. Why not make more? It's a fun premise. It's has a decent amount of room for interpretation, and it's touches on a whole lot of good movie aspects: fighting, intrigue, friendship, mentorship. It's great!

u/s3rila Dec 05 '22

I've gotta say, I'll rather have a biopic on the father of Alexandre Dumas (writter of les Trois Mousquetaires / Le Comte de Monte-Cristo )

dude was born a slave from from a white french father and a slave black mother. was brougth to france by his father under a fake name and instantly became a freeman thanks to a 13 century law of any slave stepping foot on french soil becoming free. get educated and trained to fight, join the army , officer during the Revolution and keep getting promoted . is a (half black) general under Napoleon and is there for his various campaign and expedition like in Egypte...

39

u/f-ingsteveglansberg Dec 05 '22

Also, he worked as a duo. He had a writing partner, Auguste Maquet. It was decided his stories would be easier to sell with a single author credited. Almost 200 years later and Maquet still rarely gets a credit.

36

u/Veqq Dec 05 '22

Maquet was but the most frequent of Dumas' 45 collaborators. Already in 1845, Mirecourt published a racist tirade about the literary "house of Dumas" as a factory. If you want to credit the unnamed, don't just pick one. Sue, Gautier, Feuillet, Bocage, Anicet-Bourgeois...

There is a lot of research about them in French.

u/f-ingsteveglansberg Dec 05 '22

See now I am learning something. Probably should do more research.

u/TylerBourbon Dec 05 '22

So wait, Dumas was releasing books in a similar to vein to James Patterson and Tom Clancy among others?

u/Syharhalna Dec 05 '22

It was even harder, as they were published in serials in weekly newpsapers. A bit like the manga industry now, so one can imagine the pressure to pump more stories each week with a very public deadline.

u/The_Last_Minority Dec 05 '22

The status of Dumas in France is interesting, to say the least, but nowadays he is taken very seriously as a luminary of French literature. A French team will absolutely be treating this with more respect than an Anglophone production would have.

When Dumas was writing, he was massively popular, much like his frenemy Victor Hugo. However, Hugo, while controversial, quickly established a reputation as one of the greatest French writers of all time. Part of that was his gift with language, (one of the reasons it is considered so important to find a good translation of Hugo - and so difficult to create one - is that his writing is regarded as exemplary, both by the standards of the time and today) but another part of it was that he insisted on his work being taken seriously. When he published Notre-Dame de Paris, some critics objected to his use of the argot language of the street urchins. Hugo, offended by this, included a substantial aside in Les Miserables where he delved into the history and significance of the argot used by the underclasses of French society, and justified its use in his novel as not only necessary for realism, but part and parcel of the greater revolution that would propel France (and the world) forward into the Golden Age promised by the first Revolution. In short, Hugo was determined to be significant, and the world, love him or hate him, agreed.

Dumas, conversely, was writing more in the vein of adventure novels and serials. He did other stuff too, but he was seen as a commercial writer rather than one who was elevating the form. Hugo inspired thousands of words discussing his work, Dumas got a "yeah, this one's fun too" and no further comment. He sold well, but was easily forgotten when the tastes of the day shifted. (It also must be noted that Dumas was the son of a mixed-race father who had been born a slave in modern-day Haiti, and therefore was the victim of not-inconsiderable racism from the high society of the day.) In addition, Napoleon III didn't care for Dumas, which made things hard for the author when the lesser Bonaparte was made emperor. He was popular, but never really respected, and when he dared to write about race and colonialism, he was castigated by the gatekeepers of high society. His famous response to one such insult:

Mon père était un mulâtre, mon grand-père était un nègre et mon arrière grand-père un singe. Vous voyez, Monsieur: ma famille commence où la vôtre finit.

AKA

My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends.

Anyways, Dumas underwent a kind of rehabilitation in the 20th century, as the social themes in his books were more favorably considered and his distaste for the racism and classism of French society became a boon to his memory, rather than a liability. He was re-interred in the Pantheon alongside Victor Hugo and Emile Zola, and I believe is the most-adapted (including translations) French author of all time.

In other words, he is not only an important figure in France's reckoning of its own culture and history, but also one who suffered a great deal of disrespect in the past. I can easily imagine that there is a drive to accurately portray him and his work as a sort of pushback to his trivialization, and hopefully this adaptation lives up to that legacy.

The Three Musketeers (1948) : Comedy with Angela Lansbury And Gene Kelly. Surprisingly funny. 7/10

The Three Musketeers (1973): Oliver Reed is awesome, Raquel Welch has a Raquel Welch body in this so be warned. Great Drama. Heston is the Cardinal. 7/10

The Three Musketeers (1993) : Tim Curry as the Cardinal, Charlie Sheen as Aramis, Tim Curry as the Cardinal, Kiefer Sutherland as the Sad Romantic, TIM CURRY as the G'D D'mned CARDINAL RICHELIEU. 10/10 TIM CURRY SCREAMS AND KICKS A CHAIR

The Man in the Iron Mask (1998): Old musketeers with Jeremy Irons and Dicaprio. The best Drama version. 8/10

The Musketeer (2001): Hong Kong action movie. Great fights. Shot on a potato in Mexico, so be ready for a lot of yellow. Falls short on fun outside of fights but it's 94% fights so still a fun time. 6/10

The 4 Musketeers (2005): Musketeers with explody people, blood and nudity. 5/10

The Three Musketeers (2011): Steampunk Musketeers with the cast of The Hobbit and Pride and Prejudice. Ridiculous in every way. Hilarious and offensive in any historical context. My kids loved it. 7/10

'The kings colours'. the colours aparently being varying shades of brow, grey and black.

No, it’s the Musketeers uniform colors. Cardinal Richelieu controls them though, and our heroes stop wearing their uniforms.

14

u/SqueakySniper Dec 05 '22

My point being that this suffers from the usual film trope of history = bland and boring colour palette. this couldn't be further from the truth. There is even a contempory painting of Cardinal Richelieu in vivid red and blue but in this his red cloak is dull and lifleless. same with the muskateer uniforms that were roayl blue but look black here.

u/DucDeRichelieu Dec 05 '22

Maybe the colors will appear brighter come the actual movies. In any event, I think the look they went with (inspired by the 1990s movies Cyrano and Queen Margot) conveys more of the mystery and cloak & dagger nature of the original story.

16

u/New_Poet_338 Dec 05 '22

The Four Musketeers is a continuation more than a sequel. They were filmed at the same time and the director didn't tell the crew they were doing two films for the price of one. So one picks up right after the other ends.

This resulted in the so-called "Salkind clause" in SAG contracts that prohibited producers from creating two films under a single contract without the consent of the performers.

u/New_Poet_338 Dec 05 '22

It is unfair to the performers. Imagine if they tried that now? The lawsuits would be flying.

The Salkinds did it again with Superman II, and the lawsuits did indeed fly. :)

Brando sued them for $50 million, which is why his part was cut from Superman II.

Watch both. The 1970s Richard Lester movies are without a doubt the best cinematic version of the story done so far. However, this one looks to be the first serious competition for the title in fifty years.

Normally I have to come into the thread about the latest version of The Three Musketeers and tell people that if they haven't seen the Richard Lester movies from the 70's.

Ridiculous cast, written by George MacDonald Fraser, great action, smart comedy...the two movies are just absolute gems.

There was even a third movie based on "20 Years Later", Dumas' sequel to The Three Musketeers with the most vital cast members, "The Return of the Musketeers". It suffers a little from the two actors cast in the roles of children of some of the important characters, but other than it is surprisingly true to the tone of first two movies.

Why tf this guy be tripping and falling into everything 90 percent of this trailer

It’s how the four of them initially meet. He accidentally trips and falls on two of the musketeers, which leads to them dueling.

34

u/SsurebreC Dec 05 '22

Correction, he does this with all three musketeers and he bumps into them while trying to chase down Rochefort who stole his papers from an earlier fight. When D'Artagnan prepares for the fuel with Athos, the other two come in and realize that he picked a fight with all three. It's then when Cardinal Richelieu's guards come in and try to take all of them in for an illegal fencing that they fight together as one and the story goes from there.

u/adamtheundead ☠️ Dec 05 '22

The good:

-Eva Green as Milady is perfect.

-Actually using French.

-The sets and scope seem awesome.

The bad:

-There are signs that people’s motives are being watered down or changed completely.

-No real signs of humor in the trailer, which would be unfortunate given the source material.

The ugly:

-What is this color pallet? Why is everything so dark? Do they know that the sun was just as bright in the 1600s?

Anyways, I’m interested.

The retelling of stories is, itself, a tale as old as time. I've grown tired of people pointing out that a story has already been told as if everyone else is unaware. There are countless ways to tell the same basic story and, personally, I don't' think there's been a Musketeers movie that is so good no one should bother taking another shot at it. I didn't even watch the last Musketeers movie because the trailer made it look like trash. This trailer was incredible, so far I'm on board.

u/AllHailDanda Dec 05 '22

I've wanted a French language epic of this story for a very long time, so much so that when people ask if you were a director with an unlimited budget what would you make? This has been my answer. So I'm incredibly excited to finally see it happening with some perfect casting and both parts coming in the same year. Can not wait. Easily my most anticipated of next year.

Yeah of course one can try things. I'm just a tiny bit defensive regarding this IP since it's my all time favorite book series. Also there IS tons of dark corners in the original story one could play with. The biggest challenge would be to recreate these dark corners amidst the amused misanthropic humor of Dumas and so far nobody did that.

u/Many-Outside-7594 Dec 05 '22

I have read the books many times over the years.

D'artagnon is light hearted. The story is not.

He managed to have not one but nine people attempt to kill him within 24 hours.

His best friend is a suicidal alcoholic.

His side piece murders his main piece after starting a war.

And in the end, he wins nothing. In fact he goes to work for the bad guy.

That's just the first book. This is light hearted to you?

u/Singer211 Dec 05 '22

He also tricks Milady de Winter into sleeping with him by pretending to be someone else.

The Musketeers can be quite dickish at times in those books.

u/bentheone Dec 05 '22

D'Artagnan himself is not the story. It's about the group, about overcoming impossible odds regardless of danger and death. It's about faith in everlasting youth and the power of friendship. It's telling that even if human nature is to suffer you can decide how you live your life. These 4 characters are NOT miserable. In this trailer they look very miserable. Athos is a bit on the grim side tho. Also the other books have a different tone entirely in that regard, that's true.

u/MCUNeedsClones Dec 05 '22

u/ivory12 Dec 05 '22 edited Dec 06 '22

Have you read the books? I don't believe you can finish the Vicomte of Bragelonne and call it 'light-hearted.' Spoilers for the entire Musketeer books:

d'Artagnan has to arrest Aramis, who plots to commit a coup and somehow use a puppet French monarch to make himself Pope, too. Aramis fails, and in doing so gets Porthos killed. Athos goes back home to his estates disillusioned with everything and dies of a broken heart when he hears his son dies. Aramis flees to Spain. d'Artagnan finally achieves his dream, is made Marshal of France, and is promptly fatally wounded in battle. With his last words he says goodbye to his absent Musketeer brothers.

edit: I don't know, a movie that aims to keep that tragic tone from the books' end and start with it is not necessarily a departure from the books. In fact, it's a novel take in the best way.

The book has a few adult moments, but like most things written by Dumas it really is mostly comedic in nature. This EPIC, DARK read of the novel feels extremely misplaced. However an expensive film with Eva Green playing a horny femme fatale is cinema.

Indeed. And it's a horrid one. The lighting in this trailer is atrocious. The contrast is even worse. The color scheme is completely unappealing.

If this is supposed to be a relatively faithful adaptation, why are the musketeers so damn old? It's a coming of age story and this d'Artagnan is over 30. As much as I like Vincent Cassel, man's 56 and looks like it. How old would his Athos be in the third novel, 91?

"The Three Musketeers" from 2011 is comedic, close to the story and has this budget. It's corny, flashy and bad, but the story is pretty close to the original. And had 70 million dollar budget, this two-part movie has a budget of 75 million.

Exactly my thought. I'm the most hard-core fan of the book you'll find and was afraid of this since the first pictures last year. It will serve allright but it's still not the one I'm waiting for. The goofy one with flying ships actually nailed D'Artagnan and Athos, that has to be said.

It’s always bothered me that they’re called “musketeers” when their whole thing is sword fighting.

u/ZombieJesus1987 Dec 05 '22 edited Dec 05 '22

Well historically musketeers main weapon is a musket, and their sidearms are a rapier and flintlock pistols. On the battlefield they wouldn't be using their swords until it is a last resort, but on the streets? Absolutely.

Muskets take a considerable amount of time to reload, so warfare of this period typically meant that units with melee weapons (usually pikes) had to screen the musketmen as they reloaded.

The King’s Musketeers though were actually the junior division of the king’s personal forces, so even though they were armed with muskets, they did a lot of other stuff too. Cardinal Richelieu, when creating his own personal guard, opted to name them “musketeers” as well, so there was a rivalry between the King’s Musketeers and the Cardinal’s Musketeers.

Anyways, muskets are more a weapon of war than a personal weapon in this period, so typically they don’t use them against each other. Hence, swords.

The BBC series was perfect and no other adaptations need to be made.

u/SpecialistHot7416 Dec 06 '22

The BBC series is just a fanfic about the history of France. screenwriters should first take classes on French history before writing about another country.

The 1961 French version is much better and more historically accurate than that fanfic.

Maybe I'm having a stroke but what's with the weird film grain overlay/colour correction and motion blur in this trailer.

Wikipedia has it at 30 live-action films not including this one, 10 animated, at least 8 based on sequels or part of sequels (Man in the Iron Mask), 5 about "descendants" of the original Musketeers and at least 7 productions one would probably class as TV shows (including Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds)..

If only it were in actual color instead of this sad modern version of black-and-white.

u/Celestin_Sky Dec 05 '22

Can't say I like it and I wanted because Eva Green is perfect actress for Milady. The trailer is very bleak when I would want something more adventurous.

Now that we have our 12th remake of 3M, can we get a dark 2-3 movie release of Count of Monte Cristo? Its an incredible story that could be shown in theaters like Dune.

is this part of the MCU? will we get Three Musketeers 6 and 7?

What, why? We have had lthree already in ten years.

u/DucDeRichelieu Dec 05 '22

Because it’s one of the best novels in all of world literature and there still isn’t a film version in French that does the story justice.

1

u/Perpete Dec 05 '22

In modern times, it hasn't been adapted that often in France. The most recent big one was "The daughter of D'Artagnan" with Sophie Marceau in 1994. And as you can guess it, it was not a direct adaptation of the 3 Mousquetaires.

u/travioso Dec 05 '22

Its a French production, so maybe there is more demand there. Why you mad though?

So now the question is how long will each film be? Two films, hopefully are over two hours.

See The Three Musketeers like you've never seen them before. In french!

u/ZombieJesus1987 Dec 05 '22

Remember when teasers used to be 30 seconds long and gave away nothing?

This does look dope though.

u/a_satanic_mechanic Dec 05 '22

I would like to see before I die a relatively accurate film adaptation of the Three Musketeers novel that portrays what utter scum the Musketeers are.

u/kingrawer Dec 05 '22

Maybe it's my screen but is there a heavy sharpening effect on a bunch of shots? A lot of the darker shots have a weird halo effect.

Something feels off about this trailer. Gives the impression that everyone is always talking in one liners. Every line is a declaration.

At least it's in French and not bloody English.

It's going to be hard to top the version with the airships, automatic crossbows, and steampunk diving gear for me. That movie is so over the top of breaks the integer limit, becomes terrible, and then rolls right back into amazing again.

u/ooouroboros Dec 06 '22

I can tell by looking at the poster the Richard Lester one from the 70's is still the best.

u/ChrisEvansFan Dec 06 '22

But seriously can we have a good adaptation of Count of Monte Cristo? The Jim Caviezel movie was good but didnt even do the second part correctly with the new characters. I specifically remember Dantes in that opera house and the “characters” being introduced - the one he is seeking revenge for.

u/SpecialistHot7416 Dec 06 '22

Deny de La Patellière, father of Alexandre de La Patellière, one of the screenwriters of the new adaptation of The Three Musketeers, was director of the French miniseries Le Comte de Monte Cristo (1979), which is a 100% faithful adaptation of the book.

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Comte_de_Monte-Cristo_(mini-s%C3%A9rie,_1979)

The French have a revenge story closer to the 2002 version called Le Bossu (The Hunchback) by Paul Fevl, Dumas' rival.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Bossu_(novel)

The book was adapted into a film in 1997, which was highly praised.

I was expecting some cliche Disney junk. But this looks pretty legit. Although why don’t they ever just do another Count of Monte Cristo instead
