Via Yahoo!, Ridley Scott and company have unleashed yet another “Robin Hood” trailer. It’s got some new footage, but the general tone of the film remains similar to previous trailers, though they’ve softened the soundtrack noticeably this time around. There are also a lot more “Ridley Scott moments” to be found, hinting at some possibly epic battle scenes in the movie.
Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s 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 Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion 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.
Starring Russell Crowe, Kevin Durand, Cate Blanchett, Mark Strong, Vanessa Redgrave, William Hurt, Scott Grimes, Bronson Webb, Oscar Isaac, Léa Seydoux, Alan Doyle, and directed by Ridley Scott.
