Milla Jovovich Attacks Summit for Lack of Promotion on 'The Three Musketeers'
UPDATED: The actress called out the film's distributor on her official Twitter account on Friday.
America, do you know that The Three Musketeers is opening Friday? Star Milla Jovovich doesn’t think so. On Friday, she publicly called out Summit Entertainment for not promoting the adventure film enough in the U.S.
“Are ‘Summit’ promoting it as a family adventure movie? Or are they resting on their laurels from "Twilight" n making no effort? Let me know!” the former model turned actress tweeted as she was apparently en route to the Tokyo International Film Festival where The Three Musketeers serves as the opening film.
Jovovich went on to elaborate on her disapproval, writing “I think ‘summit’ hve swept ‘3 Musketeers’, a grt family adventure film, under the rug in the US. Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU ‘SUMMIT.’”
Jovovich plays Milady de Winter aka Charlotte Backson, the film’s female antagonist who uses her beauty and cunning against the Duke of Buckingham played by Orlando Bloom.
The Twilight Saga may have brought the film studio name recognition, but it is also the U.S. distributor of The Hurt Locker, which earned six Oscars, among other notable films.
In the case of The Three Musketeers, the studio is only its U.S. distributor, which is why it has attracted Jovovich’s fury.
