Summit Entertainment has announced Paul W.S. Anderson‘s The Three Musketeers for Blu-Ray in March. The film stars Matthew Macfadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson and it retells the tales of characters made famous by Alexandre Dumas.
The film was considered a failure, barely making a dent in the 3D world when it was released theatrically. It stuck around for maybe 2 weeks before quickly vanishing into thin air. The film struggled finding an audience, which is actually kind of a surprise for director Paul W.S. Anderson.
He’s usually a sure-thing for making generic action flicks, but even this one looked too simple for the mainstream. The cast was stacked and the 3D was shot natively opposed to post-production, but that still didn’t account for anything at the box office.
Our very own Kristal Cooper had this to say about the film in her review.
This is strictly Dumas for Dummies, folks. The film may have its fun moments (and okay, the costumes are pretty cool too) but this adaptation does nothing more than make these Three Musketeers look like a bunch of Stooges.
The Blu-Ray will come in both 3D and 2D Blu-Ray packs, with the following special features.
- Commentary with the director
- Two behind-the-scenes featurettes (Cast and Crew Stories, 17th Century Action)
- Deleted/extended scenes
- Blu-Ray exclusive: Access: Three Musketeers featurette
The Three Musketeers will hit shelves on March 13th, 2012.
