Robin Hood Superbowl Spot
I am Maximus Decimus Hoodius...

05 February 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Yahoo Movies

With the Superbowl dominating US TV this weekend, a whole slew of new trailers are headed our way, chief among them Ridley Scott's Robin Hood. And this latest promo for the film gives us a further taste of what's in store: namely, lots of pitched battles and a smattering of father complex.

On this evidence, Russell Crowe's Robin spends 80% of the film angry and the other 20% brooding, but hey! He's pretty darn accomplished at both. Cate Blanchett once again (after The Golden Age) gets to don armour and fight with the lads, while Oscar Isaac looks thoroughly hissable as Prince John.

Robin Hood is out on May 14 here in the UK, so better start practicing your archery already.

RE: All I want to see is a bloody good but non CGI tear up...
L: dobsy . Even Braveheart, regaded as a return to old school techniques with plenty of extras, in spite of its realistic battles is a poor effort (pause it and see the shit CGI quality) in todays terms. y all means, please give some examples... More

All I want to see is a bloody good but non CGI tear up...
Looks more of a wordy effort and at least the love interest and brian adams shit is not the USP on this one.However I would love if just once somebody was brave enough (or financed enough) to do big scale battle scenes with real extras like spartacus or zulu dawn. I know CGI now rules but if you can clearly tell its CGI then whats the point. Surely someone could go all out and "make em like they used to". For me the much heralded epics like Gladiator and LOTR battles were dull and main More

It really does look fantastically banal. And the words, is anyone else reminded of Seinfeld's Comedian trailer? More

really do not care for this.
If they are trying to sell the film to the audience of superbowl with this, then honestly there is millions of dollars lost. More

RE: Looks awful
This looks. . .boring. Nothing new at all, Crowe's accent is funny though. "kings need their subjects. A dangerous idea" Er, why?!? & the guy playing King John looks like he's stepped out of Blackadder: The Movie. More

Looks awful
This looks like an awful attempt to redo the classic story, yet again, for no reason whatsoever. Does it ever occur to these people that the reason Robin Hood has been so popular for so long is that the story was really enjoyable? It doesn't actually need rewrites. Also it'd be nice, for once, to have someone convincing as Robin Hood rather than an obviously foreign johnny :( More

Meh
As with the first trailer, I cant see anything to get me too exited. Same stuff we have seen before from Ridley and Crowe and not even as on a grander scale as Gladiator. Im sure it will be quite good but somthing about the footage I have seen so far just makes me go...meh More
