Crowe, Blanchett And Scott!

The Robin Hood trailer has premiered starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett in Crowe's fourth film working with director Ridley Scott.

Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott ride back into actionA classic tale told the Russell Crowe way

Robin Hood is an age old story that has been tackled as a comedy and a child's tale, but the newest version coming to theaters promises to be an epic action adventure from the men behind Gladiator, A Good Year and Body of Lies.

The Scott, producer Brian Grazer and Crowe starring film, due out in 2010, tells the tale of an expert archer set on self-preservation who becomes an unlikely hero.

After he falls for Lady Marion (Blanchett), Robin (Crowe) aims to prove his worth and pulls together a lethal team of mercenaries who steal from the rich to give to the poor of Nottingham -- which has been besieged by in infamously corrupt sheriff.

As this well known tale escalates, Robin finds himself at the head of a crusade to keep 13th century England from slipping into a bloody civil war and SheKnows is quite sure he'll save the day!

Other familiar faces in the film are William Hurt, Mark Strong, Mark Addy, Oscar Isaac, Max von Sydow and Scott Grimes, and one look at the new trailer proves this is particular Robin Hood wouldn't appreciate jokes about his tights!

Yes, it's Crowe and Scott's fifth film together. I don't think the story they're telling is as well known as some may assume. The director and actor say they've used some traditional elements, but made a film more true to the origins of the legends than most 20th century treatments. As always in a Scott film, history and and period will be treated with accuracy and respect, both in the look and story. No Kevin Costner modernity or Flynn silliness or silly inaccurate tights. I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie.

Glad to hear you're looking forward to Robin Hood. Actually, though, it's Crowe and Scott's fifth film together. You left out "American Gangster".
