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!
Watch the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood:
You can also watch the official trailer for Robin Hood in High Definition on Apple
Follows Robin (Russell Crowe) from his early days in King Richard's army to his return to Nottingham to his creation of a band of mercenaries who challenge the sheriff and eventually try to prevent civil war.

This Looks Absolutely Amazing(: I Think this has potential to be best Period Piece(:
Tony on Dec 14, 2009
Looks gay. Scott lost it years ago. Doubt this will be any better than Kingdom of Heaven - which by the way, was also gay.

Bleh, WHO GIVES A SHIT, bet the Kevin Costner Robin Hood is still better.....Bring on the Clash of the Titans Trailer !!!
LORD MANTACO on Dec 14, 2009
Looks promsing indeed, but deffentially need to see some more. I do really like the fact that this is a R rated tale of Robin Hood and not some crappy Disney cash in. Should be really intresting to see where they take it.
wrongturn687 on Dec 14, 2009
It seems like a promising film, but that trailer was awful.
Mark on Dec 14, 2009
It'd be cool if there was one singing number n the middle just to lighten it up a little bit, always with the serious! just a wee dance Robin and piggyback from the Friar.
Crapola on Dec 14, 2009
WOW AWESOME! cant believe anyone can say this looks gay...btw #3 Kingdom of heavens Directors cut was equal to gladiator. Im so looking forward to a good non CGI driven epic. Scotts cinematography in some of these shots just awesome.
Cody on Dec 14, 2009
meh. not a great trailer, and bad song choice that makes me feel like I'm supposed to be impressed. I'm not.
dave13 on Dec 14, 2009
i hope this is good still, cuz that trailer was -.-
lego on Dec 14, 2009
Scott will forever have my respect for making Blade Runner, but this falls into the "meh" category.
Shane on Dec 14, 2009
Why is it all of a sudden cool to have rock music in period movies?
mojohand on Dec 14, 2009
Yeah #3 you're an idiot, The Kingdom of Heavens director's cut is amazing, and this is another Ridley Scott win.
Xerxex on Dec 14, 2009
Music sucks. No dialogue in the trailer sucks. Hopefully a better trailer will come out soon so i can forget I ever watched this trailer.
filmfan111 on Dec 14, 2009
Interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about robin hood being this BA. I like crow and I like scott so we'll see.
risk on Dec 15, 2009
All it needs is a Bryan Adams theme song
hale on Dec 15, 2009
dosen't really show a lot. But if Scott did it, I'm game.
Matthew Hansen on Dec 15, 2009
wtf... uhhh... this isn't robin hood. this is epic war movie with familiar name on title screen.
Dan the Fan on Dec 15, 2009
I liked the look of it, but I don't think it really shows us what to expect
moif on Dec 15, 2009
Worst trailer i have seen in a long time! This film doesn't deserve that shit!
pipo on Dec 15, 2009
I've already forgotten everything i just saw. crap trailer!
DoomCanoe on Dec 15, 2009
Nope, not sold.
Henjolo on Dec 15, 2009
Any scholars out there? Robin Hood-Hero Outlaw or Terrorist? Debate! Ah, and yeah, it looks OK 🙂
David Banner on Dec 15, 2009
sometimes i think i have a mancrush on russel crowe
TB on Dec 15, 2009
Well, it certainly didn't look like Gladiator. It looked like Gladiator Lite. Meh.
Sleepykid on Dec 15, 2009
wtf is this piece of shit
qweqwu on Dec 15, 2009
i think it looks pretty good. i love period movies and this looks to have plenty of great action. i'm sure crowe and blanchett will give their usual brilliant performances......i just hope the story is just as good. and none of the haters above have ONE good reason why this movie is going to be bad. just more lame comments. i'm all for "free speech"...........just not "stupid speech". and to # 3........kingdom of heaven was a really good movie. and besides, with a name like "made marion"......you have NO room to talk about something being "gay". #6 - yea, i'm glad it's "R" too. i'm tired of "pg-13" movies being dumbed down for the teeny-boppers. #14 - exactly. too many of the people on here know NOTHING about movies. they just like to make fools of themselves. #15 - yea, i thought the music was the weak spot of that trailer. and, i'm hoping for another trailer that gives us some dialogue with an indication on what the focus of the plot will be about.
beavis on Dec 15, 2009
Ridley Scott..I'm there.
JimD on Dec 15, 2009
@ 28 Go fuck your mother, noob.
Made Marion on Dec 15, 2009
30 - Checkmate. lol I'll give you a slew of reasons why this trailer was poor, beavis. It didn't showcase anything new. It was rammed full of action sequences, most of which were on horses. It introduced 2 characters; who else seems relevant in this film? All I saw was violence, imagery, and text on the screen. If the point of this film is to deliver aggression and symbolize how Robin Hood is a war mongler, then mission accomplished. Aside from that, there is absolutely NO depth. NONE. Especially with this being "An International Trailer"? Not a teaser... it's piss poor in delivering any sort of hint at a story and feel. 20 & 22 coined this perfectly. forgettable.
Dan the Fan on Dec 15, 2009
the trailer wasnt that good but its russel crowe so im in
yojoe on Dec 15, 2009
not very "Men in Tights" is it? we'll see how it turns out I guess or at least wait for a longer trailer
-Peter- on Dec 15, 2009
WOW! This is my most anticipated flick for 2010 but even I wasn't expecting that. I'm in awe!!! That's was simply amazing! Definitley a much darker Robin Hood, which is the way it should be. One of my favorite directors and actors back together again. Gives me chills! Definitely a Gladiator feel and I kinda got a Seven feel from the music. Oh I can't F'in wait!!! Will be EPIC and KICK ASS! Are you not entertained!!!
K on Dec 15, 2009
#31 are talking about the trailer having no depth or the film? #21 Chill out!!!! It's the first trailer they've released, christ don't get so worked up about it! i'm sure there will be more! Made marion you're a plank!!! Ridley Scott has produced some of the most epic films ever! I know you're entitled to your opinion but i have to say it's pretty sh*t!! 😉 Another thing actions speak louder than words!!! Don't always need speech!
marty on Dec 15, 2009
I am a fan of R. Scott, but by the way it looks, is going to draw too many comparisons to Gladiator and then fall flat for not being as good like kingdom of heaven did. The question is, can he truly top Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Lets face it, that movie had Morgan Freeman and a soundtrack by Bryan Adams. Lets just hope Russel Hood can do better.
almartva on Dec 15, 2009
Trailer is great, Music is not so good ... but Ridley and Russel together- i´m in the boat!
Razor on Dec 15, 2009
Aiming for the Transformers 2 audience? Bang for the buck, scrap the story? Well, time will tell. Besides, anyone else with the impression that they cancelled post production on this one? Looks like straight from the camera. So far not my cup of tea.
Felix on Dec 15, 2009
Universal is always hit or miss on their trailers. This one is a miss, but I can definitely see evidence that this film will have greater intensity and acting than Robin Hoods of the past. It's good to see Ridley shifting away from modern day films to period pieces again. #38 is right. No post evidence in this. Just the camera without touch up.
Quanah on Dec 15, 2009
35 - trailer. i have yet to see the film to comment on it.
Dan the Fan on Dec 15, 2009
This had so much potential when it was going to be called "Nottingham" and told from the Sheriff's perspective. It's too bad the studio, Ridley, and all parties involved lost their balls and couldn't go through with an interesting new take on the story.
Sinnycal on Dec 15, 2009
Victor on Dec 15, 2009
This looks pretty awesome. I'm a big fan of Scott and his work, so I can't wait to see this one.
Robbie on Dec 15, 2009
That looked like shit. Just like Gladiator...which was shit. How has Ridley Scott become such shit? Shit.
Voice of Reason on Dec 15, 2009
movie mike on Dec 15, 2009
Looks great,Ridleys great.New look,new style.
tir na nog on Dec 15, 2009
Any doubters, just watch the Director's Cut for Kingdom of Heaven. You will not be disappointed.

Son to a murdered father Friend to a blinded servant Prince of the Locksley region And I will have my vengeance in this life or the next...
branden on Dec 15, 2009
Who thought putting that music in it was a good idea?
germs on Dec 15, 2009
cool. and it has Mark Strong in it. He is constantly bringing up the value of the movies that he is in.
west on Dec 15, 2009
GLADIATOR! MEN IN TIGHTS!
dee on Dec 15, 2009
@ Crapola You'll be glad to know that they do sing in the film. They even did a cover of "beautiful girl" in between takes which should make it on the dvd extras.
Crew on Dec 15, 2009
Looks awesome~ R. Scott might have done the same thing with Robin Hood that A. Fuqua did with King Arthur - Retelling an old story with a new back-story and approach. On my list WAYYYYY above Avatar. Gonna be epic!
Antioch on Dec 15, 2009
If it wasnt for the title there would be no way of knowing what the movie is about, let alone a Robin Hood movie. I have hope, but the trailer is not a very good one.
Tester on Dec 15, 2009
Guys, HD trailer will debut on Apple 9am pst. only 20 min left!!!
Holy on Dec 15, 2009
bozo on Dec 15, 2009
Welcome to the 21st Century and Mr. Scotts vision of Robin Hood. Christ, wtf is wrong with some of you people? This looks epic. IT's RIDLEY FRICKEN SCOTT!!!!!!! And you twi-"liters" are responsible for the soundtrack on the trailer!
Clover on Dec 15, 2009
Everything was awesome except the song. I hope it's not in the movie and it really has a John Williams-esque epic score.
Six Three on Dec 15, 2009
mehhh.... where's the green tights???
tms on Dec 15, 2009
Haters its a fucking teaser.
Xerxex on Dec 15, 2009
@Made Marion: It looks gay? Oh well that's good. I didn't know that was a bad thing if that's what you're implying, but I don't think you're that stupid.
Itri on Dec 15, 2009
kick ass trailer!!!!!!!!!! Must watch!!!!!!! loved gladiator and im glad to see that Riddley is back to that sort of story line......... #watch it.
yumyumfish on Dec 15, 2009
Terrible trailer/teaser, but the film will be great. And anyone who would prefer the Costner version should never be allowed in a movie theater again.
Film Fan on Dec 15, 2009
Russell Crowe fighting across the world...
Eric B on Dec 15, 2009
Historical movies are always so violent.
Valerie Atherton on Dec 15, 2009
That did nothing for me.
Johnny Neat on Dec 15, 2009
what has the wolf got to do with Robin Hood, this trailer is lack luster to say how Robin Hood prince of thieves was, here hoping that forthcoming trailers or trailer is better than this teaser trailer Russel Crow looks alright as Robin Hood. 😉
Cineprog on Dec 15, 2009
@ # 3 - Made Marion - I don't even know what to say to you, you're pathetic lol I leave it at that. the trailer could have been better I agree, not a very good first impression. Hopefully they'll bounce back and give us an epic trailer. Only time will tell. Anyway better then seeing little blue smurfs running around like in Avatar lol (imo )
blue & orange ny on Dec 15, 2009
And of course no british accent Robin Hood....
N on Dec 15, 2009
There's a lot of hate for this just being the first trailer. O.o I'm sure another longer one will come out. This made me interested though. I really like Ridley Scott.
Sabes on Dec 15, 2009
I don't know about this one but after watching this trailer i don't feel it anymore.
Fisherr on Dec 15, 2009
That was a GREAT song to have. This will be a kick ass flick for sure with Scott at the Helm and Crowe as the main actor. With all the negative comments on the music this must be a friggin Canadian site or some queers R' us site.... whats wrong with a good metal song when it's about blood - violence and by the looks of the broad SEX??
Nunya on Dec 15, 2009
as far as the dickhead that knocked Kingdom of Heaven that was one of the best movies ever imo - "GOD WILLS IT!!!"
Nunya on Dec 15, 2009
#28-i agree with everything you said. #3- u dont know dick about anything, made marion? who r u jennifer connely from requiem? u gotta be doin some dope to say something so stupid. As for robin hood, gladiator was an amazing epic movie-i think this tale will live up to the same golden globe expectations.
ari on Dec 15, 2009
Robin.... Hood.... ?
Lar on Dec 15, 2009
Eh. I'll pass
Dan W on Dec 15, 2009
Crowe + Scott = Fuck yeah Anybody who got any doubts about this movie is outta their freckin' mind.
PimpSlapStick on Dec 15, 2009
"Makin' movies, singin' songs and fightin' 'round the world!"
Online Guitar Tuition on Dec 15, 2009
Smacks of trying to do a 'Braveheart' with 'Robin Hood'. Not much going on for me in the trailer. However, Crowe & Scott always come up with the goods, wait and see I suppose.
Marty on Dec 15, 2009
Looks F'n kick ass! Compare it to past/present movies and story lines all you want...... but in the end it's more realistic and the story is entertaining. So you negative fu*ks do the the world a favor and kill yourselves!
I am Ron Burgundy? on Dec 15, 2009
hey "dan the fan" ......what "depth" do you want in a 2 minute teaser? and by the way; a movie can be well made and a fun watch without having depth. i enjoy many different movie genres/styles. you should broaden your movie preferences a little. and what's the problem with only showing a couple characters in a teaser? what?......you want them to show you the WHOLE movie plot?....... I DON"T! and as far as the action on screen? they show what will grab peoples attention. that's what teasers do. there will probably be a full trailer sometime before release with more character interaction. and if (like doom canoe) you've forgotten everything you just saw then you need to seek medical help for ADD. and "made marion"........ use using the term "gay" the way you did is offensive to many people. and i'm not even sure how you equate being "gay" to being a bad film. sounds kind of childish to me. and by the way: using the term "noob" is even more childish. is that the best reply you can come up with? at least "dan the fan" disagreed with me by offering some opinions..........grow up.
beavis on Dec 15, 2009
3- kingdom of heaven was awesome, gladiator was awesome, and this movie, is going to be awesome.
shaitanjr on Dec 15, 2009
# 82 ditto. and any of you who are "meh" or complaining about the trailer need not bother to post much like you your opinion does not matter. This movie looks promising and from what i have read and seen briefly hear is a new rendition of the robin hood film. you old grandparents can go watch your Kevin Costner classic. which was not bad dont get me wrong but it falls under fairy tail structure and lack of character design.
splinter on Dec 15, 2009
Ridley is a master of cinematography, his shots are just amazing. Looks good. Definitely in to hear this story and I hope it's a good one.
Shaun on Dec 15, 2009
GOD, please, please please! let there be no goofy scenes. thank you.
metalorn on Dec 15, 2009
Gladiator vs. Sheriff of Notingham? at some points in the trailer that's what it looks like, but never the less when it comes to Ridley & Russell you have to be intrigued. Russ isn't exactly a spring chicken anymore....Gladiator was 10 years ago. we'll see if he can still pull off this kind of roll.
chad on Dec 15, 2009
What the crap kind of music was that? Crappy trailer but Russell Crowe looks badass (as usual).
Kay on Dec 15, 2009
[insert story there]
Collin on Dec 15, 2009
Nothing wowed me. Actually, seemed like a B movie trailer and the only reason people would be hyped for this movie is the fact that Russell Crowe is in it and Ridley Scott is directing. Only thing I saw in this trailer was your obligatory explosion (action) scenes which weren't very good IMO.
Allen L. on Dec 15, 2009
It's going to be awesome! I can't wait to see this one! I like every movie ever! I'm hyped and pumped to see this one! Stoked, psyched, ripped!!
Jon the Rob-ot on Dec 15, 2009
@58: sounds like 300
Jon the Rob-ot on Dec 15, 2009
#5 i agree
J on Dec 16, 2009
Don't like Russel Crowe. Bad choice for main rule. I'm so tired of same diredtor picking same actors in same characters. Hollywood need fresh blood. Meh trailer... just my opinion. Don't shoot me. I liked Kevin Costner and Bryan Adams theme :))) yes, I'm girl
Lilith on Dec 16, 2009
I love movies like this. I agree #93 that Russell Crowe wouldn't been my choice even though I think he's pretty good. Cate Blanchette is great, one of my favorites. Speaking of Kingdom of Heaven which was awesome, whatever happened to Orlando Bloom? Did he die in Elizabethtown? I think they killed him....
arjones on Dec 16, 2009
Ridley Scott's movies are pretty awesome. I am really excited for this movie! I have always liked the story of Robin Hood.
Eliza on Dec 16, 2009
oh for fuggs sake, stop whining about the intro and claim to be fans of the Scott! remember Alien trainer? huh? huh? HUH? all you got to see was egg, zoom in, egg starts opening. end of trailer. THAT WAS FUGGEN IT! now stop whining and grow a pair!
Frozztie on Dec 17, 2009
im there all these idiots saying this is a bad trailer can go smoke more crystal meth
neonblue120 on Dec 17, 2009
I am disappointed! Very... Hope this music is out.
whitebear on Dec 17, 2009
- 81 "and by the way; a movie can be well made and a fun watch without having depth. i enjoy many different movie genres/styles" translation: "I enjoy watching shallow fluff." ps: it's not a teaser, which I illustrated already. it's an international trailer, which is why more than just quick shots should be shown. look up the differences if it helps.
Dan the Fan on Dec 17, 2009
Ridley Scott is the king of epic films, Russell Crowe seems great as Robin Hood, maybe he will add a little of Maximus to this new character.
Voice123 - Trailer Voice Over on Dec 17, 2009
Haha "God Wills It" Love it! and don't forget the all time classic "Blasphemy!"
Sean on Dec 17, 2009
"Meh" "Meh" "Bleh" "meh" "Bleh" Like your opimion matters, jitwad?
sfjlvjnvjlnfj on Dec 18, 2009
Just as well Tim Burton didn't direct it. Couldn't stomach goddamn Depp in something like this.
sfjlvjnvjlnfj on Dec 18, 2009
deja vu was tony scott. not ridley. this looks amazing.
chaz on Dec 18, 2009
Every friggin' trailer is the same; pulsing rock song in the background? check! rapid-fire quick cuts so you can't see anything for more than 1/2 a second? check! slo-mo fight sequence? check! god this looks like a million other action movies, and very much like Gladiator. Yes Ridley Scott has made good movies in the past, but this lacks anything we haven't seen a thousand times before. I will pass on this one.
Dave on Dec 18, 2009
is will be amazing movie, i hope
affilrev on Dec 19, 2009
To #102 Yes, I believe our opinions are important, because we paying ticket. I like this kind of movies, but I dont llike Russell Crowe ergo probably not going to watch. But again, I like Cate Blanchett, so my urge to see her acting is greater than my unwillingness not to see Crowe's, *lol so confused*
lilith on Dec 21, 2009
Ill see it for Mark Strong.
Cody on Dec 23, 2009
Why is everyone complaining about the music? I think Scott is trying to make a more badass version of Robin Hood and the music in this trailer certainly gives it a badass feel. Couldn't have been better in my opinion.
Ed on Dec 26, 2009
What is the name of the song in the trailer???
Chloe on Dec 29, 2009
It's called "My dick-cheese is purple, who'd like some?" Catchy tune.
Harry The Spammer on Dec 29, 2009
What is everyone's beef with the music? This is badass. If you can't take it, the Disney version is always there for you.
Colin on Jan 10, 2010
It is 2 years ago but still nice.
