The Three Musketeers Flops at the Box Office

The Three Musketeers took only $2.9 million during its opening weekend, and ended up coming in behind Paranormal Activity 3, Footloose and Real Steal in terms of earnings.  Expectations had been that the film, which had a roughly $80 million budge, would take $8 million in its first weekend.  Unsurprisingly, these figures did not sit well with Milla Jovovich, who, on her Twitter account, blamed the poor showing on distributor Summit Entertainment’s marketing campaign:  “I think ‘summit’ have swept ’3 Musketeers’, a great family adventure film, under the rug in the US.” 
Of course, it could just be that viewers are bored of seeing the same old stories told and retold over and over again.  Personally, I’ve seen enough Three Musketeers movies to last me more than a lifetime.
