Here we go… the first official trailer for Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood has hit the web a few days earlier than expected, and I believe it will also debut in theatres along with James Cameron’s Avatar. I know a lot of people are looking forward to this as it reteams Ridley Scott with Russell Crowe in an action movie setting reminiscent of Gladiator. The trailer certainly plays up the action angle above all else, featuring plenty of gritty, slow-mo battle sequences set to a little bit of rock music. Zack Snyder would be proud.
I guess it does the job as far as proving that this is a new take on the character we haven’t necessarily seen before. It’s hard to say much else at this point, but I’m definitely on board with the adaptation thus far. The movie also co-stars Mark Strong, Matthew Macfadyen, Kevin Durand, Danny Huston, William Hurt, and Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian. What do you think? Robin Hood hits theatres on May 14th; check out the trailer after the jump.
Update: You can also watch it in HD over at Apple.com.
