“You’d be wise to be afraid.” Pathe in France has revealed the first global teaser trailer for their new take on the classic story – The Three Musketeers: D’Artagnan. This adaptation is being released as a two-part movie series, with the second part titled The Three Musketeers: Milady, opening at Christmas 2023 later in the year. This first movie is set to debut in France this April, but there’s no US release confirmed yet. Both films were filmed on location in France, during an epic eight months shoot, and kept as raw and authentic as possible based on Dumas’ book. Both films in this two-part adventure star François Civil as D’Artagnan, Vincent Cassel as Athos, Romain Duris as Aramis, Pio Marmaï as Porthos, with Eva Green, Vicky Krieps, Lyna Khoudri, Louis Garrel, and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd. That’s quite an impressive cast! This first teaser runs a full 2 1/2 minutes, pretty much an official trailer with tons of footage anyway. Looks like they’re aiming for realism this time, with a revolutionary kick and massive sets. But does it look any good..?
