Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
Wow. This looks truly awesome, and I’m really, really psyched for it now. I was already, but oh man! Russell Crowe looks perfectly the part (I wasn’t sure if he’d work, but he does) and Cate Blanchett as a kick-ass, no-bullshit Marian? Excellent.
Oh, and the history! Is this gonna be as much about Magna Carta and forcing King John to sign the damn thing as it will be about the action? I hope so.
As Cinematical notes, this new trailer makes the film look less like Gladiator. Which is how things should be. I love Gladiator something fierce, but if I want to see Gladiator again, I’ll watch Gladiator again.
I mean, sure, this is yet another remake/reboot/retelling/whatever you want to call it of an old, old story. But at least it does seem as if everyone involved is dedicated to doing something fresh with it.
Robin Hood opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on May 14.
