The Count of Monte-Cristo 2024

Hot on the heels of their success with ‘The Three Musketeers’, Pathé and Chapter 2 are bringing us a thrilling new adventure with ‘The Count of Monte-Cristo’. Starring the talented Pierre Niney, this film dives into the classic tale of Edmond Dantes, a man wrongly imprisoned who emerges to seek revenge as the wealthy Count of Monte-Cristo.

The story unfolds with Dantes arrested on his wedding day, a victim of a cruel plot. After enduring 14 years in the grim Château d’If, he escapes and discovers a fortune that fuels his transformation into the avenging Count. Set to hit French theaters on June 28, this movie promises a mix of adventure, love, and vengeance, making it a must-watch.

According to Variety, the directors Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de la Patellière describe the film as a blend of genres, with a strong romantic thread. They see Edmond Dantes as a superhero of sorts, moving from light to darkness to right the wrongs done to him.
