Is there Summit wrong, Milla?

By Gail Walker

There's nothing quite like a Hollywood star looking for someone else to blame when their latest film stiffs at the box office.

Milla Jovovich this week slammed Summit Entertainment, the distributors of her latest flic, The Three Musketeers (in 3D!), for not trying hard enough after the movie tanked at the US box office.

Having cost $80m, the film recouped only $8m on its opening weekend. Jovovich tweeted: "I think 'summit' have swept '3 Musketeers', a great family adventure film, under the rug in the US. Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU 'SUMMIT.'"

Brooding that Summit might be more preoccupied on the forthcoming installment of Twilight, she continued: "Are 'summit' promoting it as a family adventure movie?

"Or are they resting on their laurels from 'twilight' and making no effort? Let me know!"

The distributors have expressed bafflement at her allegations. "She doesn't know what she's talking about and we don't know where she's coming from," said a company executive.

I don't know why there's so much confusion.

After all, she's not going to point the finger at herself or her co-star Orlando Bloom. Nor at the director Paul W.S. Anderson - who, by merest coincidence, happens to be Jovovich's husband.
