UPDATE: Summit Entertainment responded to Milla Jovovich's complaints via Deadline. "She doesn't know what she's talking about and we don't know where she's coming from. [...] 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."

EARLIER: Milla Jovovich took to Twitter this morning to slam Summit Entertainment over its lack of promotion for her new film 'The Three Musketeers.' "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 actress tweeted Friday, the day 'Musketeers' opened nationwide. She accused the studio of sweeping the film under the rug in the U.S. and added, "Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU SUMMIT."

Jovovich plays the villainous Milady de Winter, who -- in this revamp of the classic adventure tale -- wields a sword along with the Musketeers. The film was helmed by her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, who also directed her in three 'Resident Evil' films.

Summit's hottest property is, of course, the 'Twilight' franchise, which hardly needs more promotion at this point. The studio picked up 'Musketeers' for U.S. distribution but was not involved in production, as they have been with the 'Twilight' films and 'The Hurt Locker.'

Jovovich was apparently en route to Japan, where 'The Three Musketeers' will open up the Tokyo International Film Festival. "Do you think ppl know about the movie?" she tweeted. Guess they do now, Milla.
