By Creative Media Times“You are a crusader. Now you have to be a warrior. You wanted to steal? Now is your time,” Little John tells Robin Hood in the first teaser trailer for Lionsgate’s upcoming action-adventure film “Robin Hood”.
Taron Egerton is playing the legendary archer, following the footsteps of Errol Flynn, Kevin Costner, and Russell Crowe.
It seem to be a gritty version, though based on this trailer, is not as serious as Ridley Scott’s war epic drama, which was released in 2010. There looks to be a few modern twists to it. In fact some of the action scenes conjures the kind of visuals from Egerton’s blockbuster “Kingsman” franchise.
The story of course is legendary. Robin is stealing from the rich, and seeks the help of Little John (played by Jamie Foxx) to spark a revolt against corrupt powers that be. Ben Mendelsohn (Ready Player One, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), is the film’s villain, playing the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Directed by Otto Bathurst from the screenplay by Ben Chandler and David James Kelly, the film also features Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, Jamie Dornan as Will and Scarlet, Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck.
Robin Hood is set for release on November 23, 2018.
