This is the sexier, faster-twitchy Robin Hood, a CGI-heavy, vista-filled adventure that, if you squint enough, might begin looking an terrible lot like a DC/Bruce Wayne period piece. While all of us have been duped by trailers in the past, I don't think this is the case with Robin Hood, this looks a very fun and entertaining ride.
If you ask me, this film is theater worthy. Now, the first full trailer film offers fans a preview of the thrilling and action-packed adventure on which the titular hero will embark. Are you excited to see a new interpretation of the legendary character?
Though it feels a little spoiler-y, even for a story whose broad strokes are well known, the trailer also shows Robin taking the inside man route with the sheriff of Nottingham (played by Mendelsohn with the same icy, loathesome suaveness he brought to his evil Director Krennic in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), infiltrating the power structure while boosting the sheriff's apprehension at the anonymous hooded one's growing legend among the sheriff's subjects.
Arriving Nov. 21, Robin Hood stars Taron Egerton as Robin, Jamie Foxx as Little John, Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet, Paul Anderson as Guy of Gisborne, Josh Herdman as Righteous and Bjorn Bengtsson as Tydon.
