First Official Trailer for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood is Online!
This may be the first huge delightful surprise this month. Universal has just debuted the first international trailer for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett (via ComingSoon). I'm not sure why I wasn't expecting much at the start, but man does this trailer kick some ass! It takes a little bit of time to get going, so give it a minute, but once it kicks in you'll be hyped for this thing until the end. I'm really glad to see Ridley Scott pumping up the Robin Hood fairytale with some grit and grime like this. It does look a little bit like Gladiator, but in the good epic way, not the deja vu way. Anyway, check this out!
