Kevin Kline Falls for Dakota Fanning in 'Last of Robin Hood' Trailer
Following the debut of the first poster earlier this spring, the first trailer for the 50s Hollywood romance The Last of Robin Hood has arrived. Kevin Kline takes the role of iconic swashbuckler Erron Flynn as he falls for an underage actress named Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning). It looks like there's some great performances on display here, but the tone seems all over the place, going from the lighter bustling environment of old Hollywood to the darker side of this obsessive romance between Flynn and Aadland. The film debuted at Toronto last year, and the buzz wasn't overwhelming, but we're at least interested. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland's The Last of Robin Hood (via Apple):
Errol Flynn (Kevin Kline), the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies’ man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with underage starlet Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning). The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence (Susana Sarandon). It all came crashing to an end in October 1959 when events forced the relationship into the open, creating an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother. The Last of Robin Hood is directed by Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland, and Samuel Goldwyn Films releases it August 29th.
