Ridley Scott's Robin Hood is definitely going to be the biggest most epic Robin Hood film ever made. Universal Pictures has recently unleashed the Super Bowl TV spot for this film, and it's pretty cool. I love how big this movie feels. There's been a lot of feedback from people saying that the film feels a lot like Gladiator, and I can't really argue with that, because it does. It still looks good though!
Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard's army against the French. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.
Robin Hood is set to be released on May 14th 2010. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! Are you excited to see this movie?
