Heading overseas in hopes of higher earnings that its dismal $2.9 million opening day in the States, Milla Jovovich took center stage at the premiere of "The Three Musketeers" in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday night (October 22).
Held as part of the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival at Roppongi Hills, the 35-year-old actress joined alongside the film's director (who happens to be her husband) Paul W.S. Anderson and co-star Logan Lerman for the opening ceremony showcase.
The red carpet appearance comes on the heels of a surprising move by Miss Jovovich - as she took to Twitter to speak out against the film's U.S. distributor Summit Entertainment by criticizing their lack of promotional efforts for "The Three Musketeers".
Of the company, which is gearing up for the release of their top-earner "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," Milla tweeted, “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!”
She added a short while 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’.”
Meanwhile, a Summit executive was asked by Deadline about Jovovich's harsh words, of which the staffer noted that Milla has been busy filming the next "Resident Evil" in Canada “and working 15-hour days and probably didn’t see the campaign. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about and we don’t know where she’s coming from.”
The exec added, “Wouldn’t you think she would call us first about this? It’s frustrating. it’s not the right way to behave. If she has a problem then come to the studio and talk about it.”
