I know it’s awards season and there are tons of great movies in theaters for the holidays, but let’s take just a moment to look ahead to summer. On my “blockbuster” watch list – Robin Hood.  Normally, I wouldn’t get excited about another Robin Hood movie. I mean come on, there have been, what, dozens of incarnations of the story on the big screen (and small). But this one has something the others did not. It has Russell Crowe and it’s directed by Ridley Scott. That’s the same duo that gave us Gladiator, and god I loved Gladiator, and Crowe in it. And from the trailer, it looks like their Robin Hood is going to be very Gladiatoresque. So I’m in. Here’s the trailer, watch and enjoy.

  1. Yes, indeed. It surely does look VERY Gladiatoresque. And I don’t have a problem with that at all. I had wondered what happened to Russell. Now I know, and I’ll be there in there front row.

  2. Wow. Totally “Gladiator in the Forest”. Looks rather dark though. I prefer my Robin Hood on the lighter side. But the Russell Crowe/Ridley Scott combo does usually make for a fine cinematic experience. So I’ll probably have to see it… along with millions of others.
