Milla Jovovich lashes out at Summit for not promoting 'The Three Musketeers'
Mila Jovovich's new film "The Three Musketeers" opened in theaters on October 21 and the actress has already lashed out at the production company Summit Entertainment for not promoting the film enough.
"'3 musketeers' opens in the US 2night! Do you think ppl know abt the movie? Ask your friends! Do they know it's a fun family film?" Jovovich asked her followers on October 21, adding later, "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.'"
The film was directed by Jovovich's husband and "Resident Evil" helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. The actress, who stars as Milady de Winter, went on to accuse the production company, the film's distributor, of promoting its wildly successful "Twilight" franchise ahead of her new movie.
"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!" Jovovich continued.
A representative from Summit Entertainment had no immediate comment.
