Robin Hood Gets a Trailer

And some windswept images...


Still trying to not imagine Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe’s re-team as Gladiator Does Nottingham?

Try this brand spanking new Robin Hood trailer on for size.

Released mere moments after a selection of new images from the film hit the interweb (see below), the trailer finally reveals Scott and Crowe’s reimagining of the cheeky chappy who stole from the rich to give to the poor.

It shows Crowe... Wait, you know what? Just click play below...

Okay, so it doesn’t exactly put paid to those Gladiator Does Nottingham niggles, but we’re still furiously rubbing our hands together over this one (yes, because it’s freaking cold over here, but also with excitement).

Unveiling a dirty, bloodied Hood that most-definitely-isn’t-Kevin-Costner-with-a-silly-accent-and-floaty-hair, this new Scott-envisioned peek back into a hardened, weary Britain looks every bit as meaty and ethereal as the pair's previous visit to Rome.

Devoid of a chat-track, it’s got Cate Blanchett, majestic slow-mo animals, blue-haze lighting, and a glimpse at the glorious battle scenes to come. “My name is Hood,” growls Crowe.

Okay, we made that last bit up. See the new images here:

      I concur with both the comments above, especially iancurtiz, as I looked at the images first and thought the same thing. However, Scott and Crowe are too good at what they do to regurgitate the same thing and I bet this will have a completely different feel to Gladiator. I was not looking forward to this, but that was one of the best trailers I have seen in a while. Now I am.

      Looks brilliant its about time a gritty version of the Robin Hood legend got made and who better to bring that forward than Scott and Crowe. Anybody that can't wait for this release really should check out Angus Donalds Outlaw, a fantastic book!
