‘The Princess of Montpensier’ Trailer Has a Steamy, Historical Menage a Trois

By  · Published on April 13th, 2011

We call them threesomes here, but this fancy film deserves something more high brow.

Masterpiece Theater-style offerings get a bad reputation because they’re usually chock full of people being extra polite and eating finger sandwiches. The trailer for The Princess of Montpensier seems to buck that trend by trading the politeness for swordfighting, and the finger sandwiches for human nether regions.

There are both kinds of passion swinging free in this trailer, and it’s all over a beautiful woman. Figures.

Check it out for yourself:

The force is definitely there. After all, director Bertrand Tavernier is no slouch, and it looks like he’s created another strong film with fierce characters and some highly inappropriate moments.

From fighting on the battlefield to battles in the bedroom, it all looks fantastic.

The Princess of Montpensier opens April 15th in limited theaters.
