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.

Born in 1981, live in the UK. I write about strange things.


  1. “I am Robinus Minimus Locksleyus, father to a murdered…wait, sorry Ridley, got a bit mixed up there.”

    And they haven’t asked Bryan Adams to do the soundtrack? Shocking.

  2. Can you imagine Alan Rickman mincing about in front of Russell Crowe if he was giving it all that?

  3. This article pretty much sums up how much I Don’t Care About This Film πŸ˜‰


  4. Can you make Robin Hood with absolutely no Fops?

  5. Neverwhere: that’s great, and it’s remarkable how that poster appears incredibly dated already.

    Nate: A good point, and I think the film will be worse for it!

  6. Dated, tired, entirely lacking in Alan Rickman, and full of Russell Crowe. NO THANK YOU πŸ˜‰

    My name’s Michele by the way πŸ˜€

  7. I’m never sure if people like being referred to as their avatar or not online! πŸ™‚

  8. You can’t hold others to the standards of Alan Rickman, that ain’t fair. I thought you might find this amusing – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc3OyvbJkj4

    That aside I think the film looks interesting, let’s face it, there’s very little out there worth watching.

  9. Hehehe it’s okay! Mostly I prefer the avatar, but if I talk to someone enough I like them knowing my name as well *G*

  10. I guess, all the new stories have been written so they’ve gone back once again to the well…

  11. 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 πŸ˜‰

  12. 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!
