Robin Hood is one of the films that I’m most looking forward to over the coming weeks as Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott team up once again.
Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richards army against the French.
Upon Richards death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marian (Oscar winner Cate Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest.
Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marian and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.
With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure.
This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.
Robin Hood is released 12th may. Take a look at a cliple of clips from the movie:
