New Trailer for Robin Hood Lays Out the Plot
03.11.10 by REELZ
It's class war again in the medieval forest as the hero (Russell Crowe) stands up for the rights of the people in this new trailer for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood. What's on display here feels much closer to the spirit of the traditional Sherwood Forest hero, and less like the displaced Gladiator that seemed to be hinted at in earlier trailers and sneak peeks.
Robin is painted as a revolutionary, following in the footsteps of his father and becoming a champion of the ordinary folk against the cruel and arbitrary rule of King John (Oscar Isaac). Along the way, we get a first glimpse at Max Von Sydow as Maid Marian's father, who seems to be a kind of mentor to Robin. His daughter (Cate Blanchett), meanwhile, gets to show some of her own mettle, matter-of-factly threatening to sever Robin's manhood if he lays a hand on her.
