The final Robin Hood trailer has been released and it reveals downright bonkers action sequences and dialogue. More action-oriented and tailored much like a superhero flick, the story sees Taron Egerton stars as the titular hero.
In the film, Robin of Loxley – a war-hardened Crusader – and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
The film does seem to have more in common with Kevin Costner’s Prince of Thieves as opposed to Russell Crowe’s take on the character. But we wonder if audiences will even care to show up at the cinema for another story about Robin Hood.
The similarities between this film and Guy Ritchie’s Arthur certainly comes to mind and if it suffers the same fate as the latter, then chances are that this possible franchise will go up in smoke as well.
Robin Hood arrives in late November and also stars Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin, Jamie Dornan and Ben Mendelhson.
