A new film version of The Three Musketeers has appeared on the horizon, and it promises a great deal of action, excitement, stunning visuals, and a healthy helping of science fiction. The trailer currently available offers little hint to the film’s plot (aside from the shadow of war threatening to engulf the whole of Europe), but the costuming, action sequences and other bits of eye candy are all extremely promising. Even more interesting, the trailer hints that the film will be embracing more than a little Renaissance and Enlightenment era sci-fi (what is often referred to as “clockpunk”). If the trailer’s visions of flying ships, massive volley guns and even an ornamented flamethrower are anything to go by, The Three Musketeers should have plenty to entertain science fiction fans and action enthusiasts alike.
