Lionsgate’s new Robin Hood trailer is so chock full of action and bow and arrows that it might as well resemble a Hawkeye prequel. Starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin, and Jamie Dornan, this new take on the bandit archer seems the most outlandish yet. And that’s saying a lot because Mel Brooks’ did make Men in Tights.
The film centres on Robin of Loxley (Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Foxx) who mounts 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.
Mendelsohn, who’s carved a reputation for being a baddie, stars as the Sheriff of Nottingham in this action romp. Rounding up the cast of characters are Dornan as Will Scarlett and Hewson as Maid Marian.
The film is slated to shoot its way into cinemas in mid-November, until then, take in the Robin Hood trailer for the time being.
