PVR to release The Three Musketeers in India prior to US

MUMBAI: PVR Pictures will release the Hollywood adaptation of The Three Musketeers, a modern take on Alexandre Dumas’s novel, in India a week before the US release.

Directed by Paul WS Anderson, the film’s star cast includes Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, Matthew Macfadyen, Christoph Waltz, Milla Jovovich and Orlando Bloom.
The movie will release in India on 14 October, whereas in the US it will release a week later on 21 October.

"India is a potential market ground for Hollywood movies, earlier there were Hollywood movies in Hindi or regional languages which used to gain in popularity, but now the growing Indian urbanized culture is actually rediscovering the magic of Hollywood movies. English movies have become the centre stage of the Indian urban cinema audience market," said PVR Pictures president Kamal Gianchandani.
