Cate Blanchett in Robin Hood
Russell Crowe in Robin Hood
In Ridely Scott’s interpretation of England’s favorite 13th century legend, he attempts to expose who Robin Hood really is, reveal what made him a man of the people and portray a more complex and darker hero.
The Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe plays a more authentic and gritty Robin Hood with his burly build, moody looks and his English accent - a very different portrayal to Kevin Costner's 1991 shiny blonde locks and smooth American accent efforts.
Crowe stars alongside fellow Oscar-winning Aussie Cate Blanchett who, with long dark locks, makes a great Maid Marian.
Ridely Scott and Russell Crowe have teamed up before in blockbuster Gladiator and slick 60s New York drama, American Gangster.
We CAN'T wait to see the film when it is released in July, we're just hoping they’ve asked somebody else to record the soundtrack this time…
