Is it “Gladiator II”? Probabaly, but Russell Crowe as Robin Hood, directed by Ridley Scott? Um, hell yeah!
I don’t know it feels more like “300″ minus 299.
This trailer is Frank Chiocchi at his best…Franks campaigns are always amazing..
Maybe they should have rethought that whole Maria Pekurovskiya promotion and given Frank the job he deserves over at Universal.
Another Robin Hood? One of the more talented filmmakers out there, and Ridley decides to remake Robin Hood for the 5000th time? Ugh. It’s hard to call he or Tim Burton filmmakers anymore when insist on dropping more of the same on us. Shame.
Looks like Ridley got it from Mel Gibson in turnaround by way of M. Night.
What I want to know is why the studios are still paying the bills to this 2 losers? I wasn’t aware Hollywood works on ‘faith’ system, that Ridley and Crow will deliver the goods after so many flops in their resume.
Well, one thing for sure, tickets prices will go up again, to recover the losses from these kind of big-budget flops.
Yeah, this looks like Gladiator lite. I’ll see it, but not with any real enthusiasm. Call me a square if you want, but I wish the studio had taken the character back to its Errol Flynn roots. The Kevin Costner Robin Hood was dark and dreary enough, and from the look of this, Ridley was intent on operating in the same vein.
Robert Downey Jr. as Robin Hood…?
Could that work? Can we try? That would be a better place for his talents because Robin has always been portrayed as a little snarky when not portrayed darkly. As opposed to Sherlock Holmes, which, let me tell you, that movie is really not about Sherlock and Watson, they just use their names – which is stupid.
If you didn’t enjoy the Kevin Costner Robin Hood, you are a douche – truth.
Actually this trailer is NOT so hot! And I’m a Ridley Scott fan
Could have been done so much better
This is meant to be “hot”? This is one of the poorest trailers I’ve ever seen. Ridley’s movies at the very least are watchable, but if I didn’t know this was a Ridley movie, I would pass on this.
Quite one of the most shockingly poor teasers in history. Whoever is responsible deserves a rocket.
kevin costner must be rolling in his grave
I’m tired of seeing “blue” movies. Why is this a trend?? Do all movies have to have a blue tinged hue to them? Has anyone else noticed this? I’m tired of it. It’s stupid and makes the film look dumb. At least for Underworld it can be forgiven, but now every movie has to have some blue tinge to it. Why is a Robin Hood movie “blue”? It’s not necessary.
PLEASE HOLLYWOOD STOP USING THE BLUE FILTER!!@%^$# (or whatever you are using to make the films “blue”).
Not all movies are blue. If they are set in Mexico or Spain they are orange, you know, because it is “caliente”!
The story of Robin Hood has not ,to my knowledge been made into 500 movies. The legend has been around for awile,about 1000 years and it is an intriguing one. I have always liked Ridley Scotts’ vision of the world past ,present and future and this RH looks realistic and interesting. This hero is not wearing a super hero costume and does not fly through the air, that is a big plus in its favor.
Frank Chiocchi is a joke. He hires an awesome editor to cut a montage and that’s all he’s good for. Anyone can oversee a montage. Nobody does that job better than Maria Pekurovskaya. The tougher the movie the better she is. She’s smart, creative and she fights for trailers unlike Frank. Whoever thinks Frank should get that promotion doesn’t know anything. Congratulations Maria. You deserve all your success!
I’m not into the rock music that accompanied it, however, I would definitely watch it.
