It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s time for terrible horror movies to rule at the box office. I’m surprised there aren’t more this year, but we do have the "Paranormal Activity" franchise taking the Halloween crown from “Saw,” which I think we’ve seen the last of for a good while, at least. Seven installments seems to be more than enough. Also this weekend, a festival of crazy wigs in “The Three Musketeers,” and we finally get to see that Other Olsen moppet at the local theater with “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”

It may have been more than forty years ago when Tammy Wynette first commanded that you "Stand By Your Man" but the words still ring true. Well, they do for Milla Jovovich at least.

It doesn't take long for director Paul W.S. Anderson -- the man behind two "Resident Evil" movies, "AVP: Alien vs. Predator" and "Death Race" -- to put his own dubious stamp on the latest big screen adaptation of "The Three Musketeers." It'only takes about ten minutes into the movie until he sends his wife and longtime muse Milla Jovovich running and then sliding across the floor to avoid gunfire (in slow motion, of course). You'd be forgiven if for a brief moment you thought you were watching a scene from a period movie version of the zombie killing franchise. Yet, for all the gadgety weapons, battle ready airships, cleavage plunging dresses and outlandish facial hair, "The Three Musketeers" is a dreary bore that manages to squander the game cast and impressive sets under dull political intrigue and rote explosions.

Actress Stays Mum On 'The Dark Knight Rises,' But Says 'The Three Musketeers' "Fulfills A Childhood Fantasy"Youthful British actress Juno Temple has been turning heads for a few years now, in films from "Atonement" to Gregg Araki's "Kaboom," even coming out of the disastrous comedy "Year One" smelling of roses. We've had our eye on her for a while, but even we weren't prepared for how good she turned out to be in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe."

Bill Condon Shows Off 2 Clips From 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' & 3D Sequence From 'The Three Musketeers' Swoops InA new day today at the o2 center in London, and the second day of the Empire Big Screen event. Fox and Universal kicked things off yesterday, and this morning started with the biggest crowd so far: unsurprisingly, it was for 'Twilight.' The Twi-hards might not have been as vocal as they were at Comic-Con, perhaps because only new addition MyAnna Buring was there from the cast, but there were still plenty of people interested in checking out the first footage from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1."

Film Will Open The Tokyo International Film FestivalWe didn't think Paul W.S. Anderson's very loose adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' famed novel could look any more ridiculous -- this thing has fucking flying boats -- until we saw the picture above. And then we realized "The Three Musketeers" will be greatest/worst thing ever.

Plus One-Sheets For 'Like Crazy' And 'The Three Musketeers'We're excited about "Drive" for many reasons: director Nicolas Winding Refn, the killer supporting cast, the badass trailer and the rave reviews. But FilmDistrict has quite sensibly put their biggest asset front and center of the domestic one-sheet: Ryan Gosling. We've tried to maintain our journalistic independence, but in the face of R-Gos's big blue eyes, we just turn to jelly, which is why the backs of our notebooks are full of drawings of our future wedding and attempts to practice our signature with his surname.

Can someone please tell us who Take That is paying off in Hollywood to infiltrate their shitty brand of manufactured pop tunes for middle aged women into tentpole movies? Matthew Vaughn inexplicably decided to use "Love Love" in "X-Men: First Class" and now another big period movie -- that admittedly is already throwing all logic out the window -- is letting Robbie Williams and co. warble.

With flying airships, Alice from "Resident Evil" and Navy SEALS (or their 17th century equivalent) appearing in this newest trailer for "The Three Musketeers," we find it pretty amazing that the filmmakers are still holding to the idea that this is actually based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas.

Currently in a tight neck-and-neck race with Roland Emmerich's "Anonymous" to be the stupidest movie of the fall, "The Three Musketeers," which sees "Resident Evil" director Paul W.S. Anderson cunningly reboot Alexandre Dumas' legendary characters for the 21st century by trying to make it look as much like "Resident Evil" as humanly possible, is looming on the release schedule. We've already seen one truly terrible trailer for the film, and now, with the film's October release date coming closer, Summit have released the first one-sheet for the film, via Yahoo.
