Watch This: Ridley Scott's Robin Hood Superbowl TV Spot
Universal has debuted their Superbowl TV spot for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood today over on Yahoo. I guess it's becoming a trend to release your big Superbowl TV spots before the actual Superbowl? Or maybe this is just another random TV spot, because Yahoo doesn't say anything about the Superbowl (although there's no other reason for this to be airing). Anyway, check it out below, it actually looks pretty damn cool. Just like the first trailer, this looks epic and awesome and huge in scope and scale, but it still feels like Gladiator with bows and arrows. Despite that minor criticism, though, I'm still pretty pumped for this. What about you?
