First Look at Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood (Trailer)

From the Huffington Post:

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” has been released and it looks to be a classic Scott epic filled with lots of gritty violence.

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine,, and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. I took a look at the trailer and just wasn’t that enthused. Maybe I’m finally getting to the point where “yet another remake” doesn’t do it for me anymore. I’ve no doubt it will be a good movie, though. Hard to beat a Scott/Crowe pairing.

    Of course, I say I’m getting tired of remakes… yet I can’t wait for the new Clash of the Titans! One of my all-time favorite movies when I was a kid. I just hope it’s good.

  2. I thought it looked okay. It seems there are more large scale battles in this one, which is a bit odd to see Robin Hood leading armies in pitched battles. I’m not sure that picture of him fits with the legend of an outlaw.

    Scott, I agree about remakes. They’re becoming very tiring. I want to see some fresh ideas. But since it’s Robin Hood and medieval, I’ll probably go see it regardless.

  3. Very interesting trailer. This certainly will not be an Errol-esque version. Lots of action, and it looks like they won’t shy away from showing death. I’ll show it to my daughter and get her take, since she has researched the old Robin Hood ballads to the “T”.
