Robin Hood Trailer


You see, it’s all well and good having a Robin Hood that’s nails, and significantly more grown up than the BBC series. And it’s all well and good making it look visually stunning.

But can they ever recreate or improve upon one of the finest pieces of casting in cinema history, that of Alan Rickman as the Sheriff? I think not!


Will it be the same taking a more direct route to Nottingham this time – i.e. not Dover to Nottingham via Hadrian’s Wall, as was vogue in Prince of Thieves?

And where’s your rock ballad, Ridley Scott? Finally, I suppose at least it doesn’t matter if he’s as creative with history in Robin Hood like he was in Gladiator.

I hope the Sheriff get’s to say “I’m terribly vexed” at least once.

I loved how they got to Nottingham, via Hadrian’s wall, in POT. Satnav was obviously a lot more buggy back then 😉

Philip – thanks for the link, that’s a great impression.

Neverwhere… I mean Michele, of course. Consider you de-avatared.

John – possibly, but then again, Robin Hood was always a mishmash of myths.

Neil – we can hope, but I think they’ll take it seriously… It’s Russell Crowe!
