because I can: Russell Crowe as Robin Hood

I don’t have anything deep to say about this — I just like looking at it. And, OMG, I think I dreamed this once:

Quoth USA Today (also whence this graven image hails):

“He doesn’t have the old Robin Hood tights,” says producer Brian Grazer. “He’s got armor. He’s very medieval. He looks, if anything, more like he did in Gladiator than anything we’re used to seeing with Robin Hood.”

Armor? Medieval? Gladiator? *swoon*

When I first heard about Ridley Scott’s take on Robin Hood — which had been called, for a while, simply Nottingham — I thought it was gonna be adapted from the most excellent novel from the early 90s by Richard Kluger. But this appears not to be the case.

I don’t care. I’m totally there when this opens in May 2010 (as currently scheduled). And I’m gonna read the Kluger novel again anyway (I still have my copy).

(FYI: The Kluger novel appears to be out of print on both sides of the Atlantic, which is a damn shame.)
