Our very first look at moving footage from Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood has appeared online in the form of a trailer. It’s a bit different to what I expected but it looks interesting. It starts off mysterious with a dark forest and wolves, but then Russell Crowse rises from the water screaming and that then all the action kicks in. I’m liking how Ridley Scott has filmed the close-up/slo-mo arrows firing.
Oscar winner Russell Crowe stars as the legendary figure known by generations as “Robin Hood,” whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. And whether thief or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.
