This great looking new Robin Hood film directed by Ridley Scott reminds me more of Mel Gibson's Braveheart than it does Gladiator. That's not a bad thing because Braveheart is one of my favorite films of all time. This new trailer is the final trailer to help sell audiences on this movie. If you weren't sold on the film on the last couple of trailers that have been released, then this will be the one that will make it or break it for you. I think this does a great job giving us more of the story, and more info on the characters than what we've seen previously.
It looks like Scott did a great job bringing this story to life, and this trailer really got me excited about seeing this movie. You've got to watch this trailer below and tell us what you think, I have a feeling if you're not already sold you will be after you watch this new trailer. You can't go wrong with Ridley Scott.
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.
"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.
With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.
The movie comes out May 14th.
